It's possible to enable item versioning on lists and roll back to a previous version on that item. Can this be done for the entire list? So we can roll the whole thing back?

We accidentally modified a site column used in the list and lost some dropdown values for some choice columns across the site collection (Update all list columns based on this site column option was set to yes). It would be great to prevent this in the future.

Sorry to hear that but lists themselves are not versioned, they cannot be rolled back.

You may want to consider database or site collection backup/restore. You may still lose some data depending upon the backup schedule.
