    Sonic the Hedgehog, obviously.

    I still play it regularly, 13 years later...

    Don't forget the original "best game ever" - ELITE (8 bit). Not that I ever got on with it but it was the king of the classics back in it's day. ;)

    Oh, that's just the beginning.

    Are you wanting to do just arcade games? Or will you be looking at console games? How about home computer games? How far back are you going to go? Are you just going to focus on a few of the most famous ones, or are you looking to construct a lineage?

    About how many games are you planning to cover?

    Hearing someone say they're going to write the videogame histroy is (almost) like saying "I'm going to write the history of music; what are your suggestions for classic music?"

    There is just so much out there; hundreds of thousands of games.
