Games That Shaped My Life

I was born in 1980, so I've pretty much grown up with the gaming industry. There were a few games before me that I was too young to appreciate, but from the NES on I've had a front row seat to watching games go from text-only to 200 hour behemoths.
These are the games that had a profound impact on me. Some aren't even for good reasons. This certainly isn't a 'favourite games of all time' list, though I'm sure a lot of it will cross over.
