    If botw isn't a decade definer, changing an over 25-year old standard for a famous franchise so drastically, then I don't know what is.

    Welcome to Tallen Disagrees:
    Pokémon Go was huge, but did it influence the gaming industry at all? Is there A Yu-Go-Oh or a Digimon Go? No. Pokémon Go was huge but it was far from influential, and only inspired Let's Go Eevee. Far from generation defining.

    glad to hear the honorable mention for FNaF; it may not be everyone's cup of tea but it certainly had a big effect on horror games as a genre

    Dragon's Dogma and Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen that is all. It paved the way for many games today. Aswell as the game basically being a mixture of Dark Souls, The Witcher 3, Breath of the Wild and Monster Hunter! It's severely underrated but made what many games were today.

    I never got to play this... for some reason it refused to work on two different phones (one of which being a flagship, so not just a weak phone problem)..

    Pokemon GO is basically the only reason for me to go outside these days. Like a fitness tracker but actually fun.

    Pokemon Go was a test run at intruding on people's privacy in the real world. A way to test if it's possible to literally shape people into going to a specific place. It was only ever a test, never a game. It was never designed to be sustained for any longer than it existed. Disappointed to see it on this list, it isn't something that should be encouraged to exist ever again.

    See Zuboff's piece on this in her latest book. Eye opening.

    Pffft Pokemon go. I played that for a month when it came out... What do you mean hundreds of people still play it and other games were spawned off of it that others still play base off of other series such as Harry potter

      "flip me over and feed me just the green one from the quality street tin." What the actual fuck sort of catchphrase is that?

    I'll admit, I played this game for a little while, but once the novelty wore off I really grew to despise it. It could've been so amazing, but it's a watered-down shell of what most of the other games are.

      bruh if they just made it so you could battle other people with your team to level your dudes up it would’ve been the worlds best mobile game

    I can remember being in Athens when Pokemon GO just came out. One of the surrealist moments was when I was in a park, and I could see this massive circle of people. it was so weird because the circle was dense with people, then just cut off with nobody and yet the people in the circle weren't consciously forming a circle. I realized that the edge of the circle was where the free wifi ran out... hundreds of people just playing Pokemon go
