I think all games are in VR. This is a very cool branch in the gaming industry and I really hope that it will improve. I've never had so much fun playing games. I thought I tried everything, but after I tried VR I was stunned. I hope that computer vision software company is the future of game dev

depends on the game and era, platform too.

Ground breaking due to first time experience. Or say single player and multiplayer? arcade style ? fps, or role playing etc . Mostly raw popularity wins the title greatest game.

My overall pick tho would be Halflife was the greatest modern computer based game. It was maybe the first real thriller with decent graphics. You became the character you were the lead actor it was like being in a movie, in first person with a real immersive interesting story line.From it gave birth to one of the most played multiplayer games of all time. So its a true benchmark.

But hands down the most significant game changing multiplayer has to go to battlefield 1942. That was ground breaking.

It granted first person shooter and the ability to really move beyond the 3rd wall in games. Which was moving towards total interaction with the environment. Untill then it hadn't been offered before. You could basically use all the vehicles and weapons at your leisure with physics and it wasn't scripted. That was ground breaking for online gaming and you were playing against upto 64 people too.

Hard to say as what is "great" will likely depend on what different people value...
I'd have to go with Warcraft 3+TFT expansion (and not the awful reforged one)
was probably the first game i encountered with that degree of community created content.

EA's NHL game that first appeared on Genesis was certainly ground breaking ...
