    Neat. Pac-man, Tetris, and Pong are indeed indisputable classics, probably the first three that would come to my mind in addition to DOOM (and I'm a DOOM fan).

    Never managed to get into Tetris myself, although my brothers did play it back in the day.

    "Ego-Shooter"... ?

    Diablo came out in 1998? Maybe that was the German release?

    Tetris is the ultimate cell phone game, for waiting in line and such.

    Ego shooter? I'd probably classify doom as an id shooter. Sorry, but it had to be done, now we can all move on with our lives.
