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).

I'm assuiming your younger then me a bit, probably grew up on N64 right?

Haven't you ever played an old game because of good hype? I beat Chrono Trigger during the 6th gen (not 4th) on a PC emulator, and it's one of my favorite games of all time. I plan to buy it on VC just to have a legit copy of the game. I also played and beat a bunch of NES games in the 6th gen.

My #46 is GRID on the 360. Well, you could also count it for the PS3, but I haven't played that version, so I left it out. I own the DS version, but that one is a whole lot different. It's good for what's possible on the DS, but no match for the home console versions.

An accurate description of GRID is: If this game was a Porsche, Forza and Gran Turismo would be Trabis.


Awesome to see you have GRID on your list xD


#46 - N+ (XBLA) I also own the DS version for this, and it too is a whole lot different. Could never adjust to it on the DS, it's fantastic on XBLA though. Shame it gets waaaaay too hard at the end.



46: Pokemon Blue (Gameboy)

46.

     I wasn't a huge fan of CS 1.6 because at the time I was nuts on Warcraft 3, but CS Source is probably my favorite PC multiplayer game. It came with Half Life 2, which on it's own is a great game, and this is probably the simplest multiplayer game out there. Just join a game, buy some guns and eliminate the other team, when the match is over repeat. Great maps, great to play shooters with a mouse, and it's fun as hell spraying profanity (often porn) on people you killed. Ahh the greatness of unfiltered MP.

spurgeonryan I've always wanted to get into Tactics Ogre because I really love Fire Emblem, Front Mission, Final Fantasy Tactics, Age of Empires and Jeanne d'Arc. Never really had time, but one day I'll pick up the PSP remake and borrow my friends PSP.

PhantomLink Shouldn't you write / Oracle of Ages? The games are nearly identical, and when you beat one, you can play the other on the same cartridge. I loved this game as a kid, Nintendo Powers Walk through had a world map and covered more then half of the game. I used to play it every recess.

KylieDog Great game too, it's on my list as well, but much higher.

46 - Indigo Prophecy (pc)

Much more exciting game than the god-aweful Heavy Rain.

I love the game, until you got super powers. It was such a mysterious title, and then out of no where it went all matrix. Good game I agree, but I really didn't like the end.

Not if your profile age is correct. I'm 24.

46. Professor Layton and The Curious Village

Games like this probably represent the best use of the capabilities of the DS, with good use of the touchscreen to solve the puzzles that are all intertwined with an intriguing story. You play as Professor Layton, aided by his young assistant Luke, as they set about solving the mystery of St Mystere in pursuit of what you're told is an artifact called the Golden Apple. The residents of the village will often throw puzzles at you as you attempt to ask them questions, and there are others to solve that come up when investigating objects. It could have been higher in my list, but some of the puzzles can get a little repetitive towards the end, such as the sliding block puzzles, and once you've completed all the puzzles on offer, the game has very little replay value.

I apologise for not being able to afford a video game console when I was 5.
