Bloodborne's apparently successful launch (see note below) has yielded two interesting points, for me.  One is that it's being hailed as the PS4's savior (see note below) and the other is that it seems to have serious technical problems.  Conversations erupting around...

DAILY MANIFESTO

The Shakespeare of Video Games

Posted on Monday, March 26 @ 21:40:17 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
Professor Henry Lowood, over at Stanford University, is trying to get the Library of Congress to start preserving games the same way they do with books, movies, and music. The question is though, where to begin?

Take a look around the literary canon, and you'll find consensus on lots of core titles - Hamlet, The Great Gatsby, Huck Finn, Moby Dick, Great Expectations... Movies might be even easier, since it seems everyone tops their list with Citizen Kane. But what are the core games that we need to preserve for future generations?

Lowood and friends have presented their list:

    * Spacewar
    * Star Raiders
    * Zork
    * Tetris
    * SimCity
    * Super Mario Bros. 3
    * Civilization I & II
    * Doom
    * The Warcraft series
    * Sensible Soccer

Personally, listing a "series" is cheating if you ask me. And I don't agree with all their choices. Where's Pac-Man and Donkey Kong? How about Castle Wolfenstein, the first first person shooter? Pirates? Ultima? And what's up with Sensible Soccer? There were ground-breaking sports games long before that. Have you people heard of Pong?

And why are we stuck in the distant past? Regardless of what you think of Lara Croft now, the first Tomb Raider game was a huge leap forward that changed video games forever.

What games would make your list?
