50 - Medabots

48 - Your first hint screams Suikoden 2, but its celarly Symphony of the Night. 

48 is correct!  50 is not. 

Suikoden 2 is on my list of games that I've always wanted to play but haven't gotten around to yet.  In fact I haven't played any Suikoden games yet.  Maybe next year will be the year.

The 3D Suikodens look graphically dated today, but if Suikoden2 is ageless imo. I'd absolutely recommend it.

50 - Robopon 2 perhaps?



49

Ikaruga (Sega DC)

There are other games of this type, but none combine score and gameplay producing so much adrenaline with style, difficulty of level design its on point.



#49 - Searching for a treasure in Stone Age.

Here are my first few clues:

50   This GBA game is based on a very old Japanese manga.

Astro Boy?

49   I will be surprised if anyone gets this one, so here's about as easy as I can make the clue.  This is an early 80's arcade game where you extend your tongue through a maze to eat pellets as well as ants and worms.  At night a spider comes out, which is almost impossible to kill.

Anteater. I know about this one secondhand, as I played its best-known clone for home computers, Oil's Well, a lot.

47   This is an early 80's arcade game known for using a trackball to shoot different bugs.  

War of the Bugs, or Monsterous Manouvers in a Mushroom Maze? (Yes, that's the actual title of a video game, including the spelling.)

Also I want to add some honorable mentions for games I played since last year's list, but didn't quite make the top 50:

Valkyria Chronicles 4 - Extremely fun and a good story, but the first one is probably more memorable 

I loved this one, and I recently started playing again after I got unstuck from an area. The first game is one of my favorites of all time. I might put this one in my top 50.

50  a) This GBA game is based on a very old Japanese manga.
b)  The protagonist is both a robot and a boy.

b)  There was a clone of this game called "Aardvark" on the Atari 2600.

48  a)  This may be the best looking (and best overall) 2D game on a console known for 3D games with now very dated graphics.
b)  The protagonist's name in this game is the main antagonist's name spelled backwards.

47  a)  This is an early 80's arcade game known for using a trackball to shoot different bugs.  
b)  If you are thinking of two possible games, this would be the first one.

46 a) This game makes great use of the Wii U gamepad by allowing one of the players to split up and still have their own screen.
b)  This game uses well known Nintendo characters, but was not developed by Nintendo.

50: Astro Boy?

49: Damn, I was gonna say Aardvark

48: ???

47: ???

46: That sounds familiar...

#47 Guessed by Agente42: Rabbids Go Home

a) Collect trash…

b) …in a shopping cart…

#46

a) Turn based strategy game.

b) Weapons may have special effects like Bounce, Honey or Ink.

#45

a) A seasoned adventurer shipwrecks on a cursed island.

46: Mario & Rabbits: Kingdom Battle

And that's turn-based tactics, not turn-based strategy (where you lead armies, not individuals)

45: Zak and Wiki?

Yes, to Mario+Rabbids. And I never really get the difference between strategy and tactics, sorry.

Zack and Wiki was my game #48, which was correctly guessed by TruckOSaurus. This one is a different game.

50 - incorrect.

I was thinking of starting with Suikoden 1, but maybe I ought to just skip to the one that several say is the greatest PS1 game ever.

50 - Correct!

49 - Correct!

47 - no, this game is not too obscure as long as you are familiar with early 80's arcade games.

Yeah, I love, love, love Valkyria Chronicles 1.  VC4 had gameplay that was at least as good, but I feel the first game had a better story.  Also the first one gets bonus points for how original it was when it was first released.
