Unless you're telling me that all the games came out on the same exact day, there is always an original game.
Original games as in what made the Battletoads franchise what it is (or was), drawing a destinction between then and now. Also "original games" as in, why reducing Battletoads to one game? You say the original wasn't very good, but what about Battletoads Battlemaniacs and Arcade? The "baseline" is definitely bigger than one "original game".
