  2. How can Minecraft not make the list? It's got to be the biggest game of all time surely??

  3. I was thinking the same made the shortlist twice.

    Angry birds is an odd choice, for a start it's a mobile game not a full video game so surprised it's on there.

    Nintendo leading the pack with 3 they will probably add to their numbers, they have the strongest video game history.

  4. I agree with angry birds in the sense it was the first truly big mobile game and made mobile games take off a lot

    Minecraft though because of all the things that can be done and the educational use

  5. Angry birds was released on console too - X360 for sure (kids had it haha) I'm not justifying the inclusion of it mind just thought I'd share the fact.

    It's crazy minecraft isn't in. Global sales plus the amount of YT videos that are done it surely would of pushed it in
