I noticed you missed out some of the best RTSs and traditional table-top / Pen & Paper games:-

Monopoly - one of the most successful traditional board games
Dungeons & Dragons - you must play at least one traditional pen and paper game
Warhammer, Warhammer 40k or Battlefleet Gothic - statistics and game design on the table top
Xenogears - disc 1 how to effectively tell a story in a RPG, disc 2 how not to effectively tell a story in an RPG, the effect of going overboard with long dialogue and cutscenes
Starcraft - one of the most famous RTS games for multiplayer gameplay
Command & Conquer 3 - how to effectively implement full-motion video into a video game and use it as an effective tool for immersion (particularly CnC3)
