Well doom 2 for the PC (not sure about original doom) single handedly started the home networking lan part craze. Before id made doom lan equipment in the home was non existant, after doom2 all my friends and I purchased ne2000 compatinle network cards and hauled our computer equipment to the biggest house we had and ran coax cable all over the floor for one huge lan party (over the weekends). No every game has networking modes.

Looking over the list I can say that it covers some of the arcade and pc games ok, but does leave out the consoles and early non pc computers a bit.

Tribes should have been on the list for starting the team fps indoor/outdoor capture the flag craze thats still going on

As far as the rts games, dune2 was influential, the rest were just better versions using better graphics and more features.
