Welcome to This Day in Pop Culture History, a daily look at important events, birthdays, and other oddities in pop culture! History is important, and we aim to educate here at Bleeding Cool, so without further ado, here are some things that have happened on March 16, the 75th day of the year:

1850- The Scarlet Letter is published.

Today in gaming, we saw the release of EverQuest (1999), Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life (2004), Unreal Tournament 2004 (2004), and Dynasty Warriors (2005). I was obsessed with EverQuest back in the day, what about you Maddie Ricchiuto?

People still play Everquest I think that says enough there. Dynasty Warriors is another classic.
