Lol at recognizing Microsoft Windows Solitaire & Candy Crush.

Seriously, I’m not sure if I’d give it to Melee personally, especially over Myst. Myst was transcendent for its time and inspired many of the games after it.

I can see Windows Solitaire, as it has been historically significant and quite prolific (much like Minesweeper), but Candy Crush definitely needs to wait its turn.

Lol at Candy crush.

And who thought of adding melee instead of either Metroid Prime or Super Mario 64?
