    So I've seen the term 'Holy Trinity' get used a lot when talking about games and I wondered what some of your guys Holy Trinity is.

    This isn't the best games of even your personal favourite, but more those with the biggest impact and an ever lasting legacy.

    I currently have two.

    The first is the holy trinity of CRPGs which consists of: Baldur's Gate, Fallout and Planescape: Torment.
    These three I feel shaped the genre and even to this day, we are seeing their influence in more modern games.

    The other is the modern Computer Game which is Thief, System Shock 2 and Deus Ex.
    I feel these 3 capture the spirit of gaming in their finest. We are seeing a resurgence of all three franchises (to varying degrees of success) and also seen spiritual successors for most of the games.
