Was there ever a game that gave you a "this is it!" moment about game development -- the one that pushed you on the path?
We asked our Twitter followers this question: "Was there a specific game that got you into game dev? 'This is it!' What was it & why?" The result is a wide array of different games: Some recent, some older; some obscure, some regarded as era-defining classics.
Some inspired their creators thanks to the quality of the game -- and some inspired them thanks to the qualities
of the game. In other words, some were simply inspired by the total package; others found something within that pushed them to explore that space in their own work.
What's the game that did it for you? Feel free to share it in the comments below.
