Merid­ian 59 (1996)

The first 3D mas­sively mul­ti­player game, Merid­ian 59 is the grand­fa­ther of World Of War­craft and, more lately, Des­tiny – and it’s still go­ing. Play­ers who are killed in the game lose all their pos­ses­sions, which leads to a lot of high-stakes du­elling.

Google Earth (2005)

This planet-sized selfie has been down­loaded over a bil­lion times, and was fol­lowed by more far-rang­ing ef­forts in­clud­ing Google Moon and Mars .


A lo­ca­tion-based strat­egy game. Play­ers in­stall the Ingress app on their phones and then take con­trol of ‘por­tals’ by phys­i­cally be­ing near them. By con­nect­ing por­tals to­gether, teams can take con­trol of huge ar­eas. Nerdy, but fu­tur­is­tic.
