Hmm, my generation breakdown is roughly:

5th: 13
6th: 17/18
7th: 19/20

The few PC games in the list all handily fit into 6th gen. I didn't own a console during the 4th gen, though when 5th gen was in it's stride (about 96) I bought a MegaDrive, moving onto N64 in 99... and a GameCube 2 days after the European launch in 02. I sold the MD to help pay for the N64, so I didn't really get to experience much of it, only buying 4 Micro Machines games (which were awesome, I wish there was a modern equivalent, or that 1 would appear on VC) and a Lotus racing game (which was terrible)
I have also got Sonic, Sonic 3 and F-Zero on VC, but they are mostly too dated for my liking (I don't regret getting Sonic 1 though, that still has some charm)

From the 3rd gen I have SMB:Lost Levels and Galaga '90. Both on VC... SMB platforming is probably never going to feel too dated, though in retrospect I wish i'd got SMB3 instead of Lost Levels. I wish I hadn't bothered at all with Galaga.

Oops, sorry, I'm a few days late.
Anyway, I'll start to do my list now

Nothing at all from the 4th gen? Wow, that's shocking. 4th gen is my favorite, and the SNES constantly gets best console ever made awards (IGN in particular consistantly rank it #1, but with the number of quality of games this gen, I wouldn't be surprised if it's over taken)

As I said, I didn't get to spend much time with the megadrive, and my time with a real SNES is small and scattered: About 20 minutes of Super Mario Kart (battle mode) on a friends brothers console, A few minutes on a different friends SNES playing Donkey Kong Country, must have been around '94 as he moved to Canada the next school year. And maybe 20 minutes of Super Mario World on a cousins console.
So in total i've spent less than an hour on a real SNES, and 2 hours of F-Zero on VC (which with hindsight I would not have bought)

There are two games I have considered getting: Super Metroid and LoZ: ALttP.... but going back to 2D in series I started playing in 3D feels wrong, though I think it's more to do with control rather than the lost dimension... I can't stand being restricted to moving in only 8 directions. In addition to that, I would have to get the GC controller out for SNES games, and the shoulder buttons don't match (GC using analogue triggers).

Never play SNES games with a GC controller. Not because of the shoulder buttons, but because of the face buttons. Use a CC, because that basically is a SNES controller. Yes, it does have analog shoulder buttons too, but that's not much of an issue. In the cases of ALttP and Super Metroid, the former doesn't use the shoulder buttons at all and the latter only for diagonal aiming. The only reason to not get these games is if you hate yourself.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Gamers Club

#46 The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons. I still think that linking the two oracle games was a bad idea. Subrosia was a good idea but it became boring after a while. The best part of this game is using seasons to progress and reach new areas in the overworld.



Why don't you make like a tree and get out of here?

#46 Heart of Darkness played on Playstation, released 1998

Part of an underrepresented genre, a beautifully made cinematic platformer with a great orchestral score to back up the action. Following in the tradition of Another world and Flashback. The only recent game in this genre is Limbo, which was a bit too much style over substance for me. The game's only drawback was it's short length, but it was all quality over quantity. There was plenty of variety in gameplay and puzzles on your journey to confront the master of darkness. It was a lot of fun to play together, taking turns to get through the difficult sections. Not many games nowadays are just as fun to watch someone else play. I would love to see a modern take on a full budget cinematic platformer backed up by a team like Naughty dog. Until then I'm looking forward to the HD remake of Oddworld's Abe Oddysee.

46. Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep (PSP)

Although it's not as good as KH and KH2 it was still an enjoyable experience. However, the story was a bit weird.

I have Ogre Battle for the Snes down. I spent over 50 hours on it. At the end when I found out that I turned out to be evil I was very dissapointed. Tried to go back and change it all but I was too late. It was a great game though! First RPG that I ever played!
