Game Innovation Database

Spurred on by miraclous discoveries, of rare internet treasures, by a certain Gnomeslair , the elderly presents a once of, hardly ever to be repeated

A wiki style offering, with such gems as

The first game to track high scores Seawolf
First use of digitized sound without a sound card Meanstreets
First use of Analog Swing Trigger Nintendo 64
First Arcade Video Game Computer Space

At the time it was a revelation, and at created the same buzz as oblivion albeit amongst a much smaller audience.
