I think that's a good way to put it. I'm talking about games like Mega Man 9, Mutant Mudds and League of Evil. I want to see your favorites and picks for the best from any system.

Mega Man 9 Followed with the Vamptastic Mega Drive sounding Arcadey feeling Castlevania The Adventure: ReBirth.Wasn't too crazy at all over Contra ReBirth, and Mega Man 10 while good for me was pretty dissapointing in comparison 10. not as lively, colorful, up beat or fun...Instead a sad gloomy serious tone was present and it felt like Capcom was just going through the paces again. Mutant Mudds was quite the INtense blast, but it's art direction is severely uninspired...Almost like some generic flash game, but in 12-bit. durp!

In terms of reboots to actual series intentionally trying to be like the old games...not sure if it counts but Donkey Kong Country Returns. Took the awesome original and just added far more crazy stuff happening throughout the levels. Amazing game. Yeah, the XBLA/Wiiware/PSN old school reboots haven't interested me too much. Mainly because none of them seem to live up to the incredibly high standards of the best games in those series or to some of the best indie titles out there. Like, I really enjoyed Sonic 4 episode 1 and I'll probably get Episode 2 on XBLA sometime but it doesn't compare to World of Goo or Cave Story (my problems with Nicalis aside, it was apparently patched eventually anyway). I've heard Megaman 9 actually does compare but it costs more than the actual NES games so...
But in terms of new games trying to be retro, Cave Story. Kind of an obvious answer but Cave Story is amazing. Also some love for RPG Maker games. Stuff like KWRPG2: DE, Kinetic Cipher and other stuff no one has heard of. Shame almost all of them end up cancelled before they're finished (can't blame them, trying to make a full RPG by yourself without an audience can't be worth it).

Oh yeah I think Donkey Kong Country Returns counts!

I should add I think a favorite of mine would be 3D Dot Game Heroes which should count in this retro revival series of games.

Punch Out Wii was a awesome throwback, Sin & Punishment 2 as well.
Looking forward to: ZeldaU & Hyrule Warriors

VVVVVV and Mighty Switch Force! as far as 3DS games go (Silly Mutant Mudds, there was no "12-bit" era . MM was a good game BTW, it just utterly failed to create any sense of nostalgia, IMO). Actually, OoT3D was a fantastic remake as well.
I'd like to say DKCR, but my Wii stopped reading dual-layer discs before I could finish it

When it comes to reboots i'm going to say Kid Icarus: Uprising, even though its gameplay has barely anything to do with the original. In terms of retro throwbacks... Cave Story.

I still have yet to play Punch Out.

haven't played DKCountry Returns yet, but i have the original on SNES, so if it's anything like the SNES version, then it would be pretty fun to play.

yeah it's basically DKC again (in a good way), except the levels are far more crazy.

Unfortunately, it's still the same controls again, except now with the occasional motion gimmick. I rented DKCR and was done with it in about 5 minutes.

I have to mention the River City Ransom-style Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. One the rare instances of a movie and its game BOTH being one of the best being offered on its respective medium for that year! The movie landed on quite a few critics top ten lists and won some awards, and the game won some best downloadable game award!

Scott Pilgrim is pretty fun. It had quite a few Super Mario references if I remember correctly.

PiCTOBiTS is pretty fun, but it gets hard FAST! i only play it in the car to pass the time, though :/
19. Posted: Mon 3rd Sep 2012 04:01 BST
Oh yeah. I have Pictobits too and I think I've made it as far as level 8, lol.

i got up to the excitebike level, but i cant beat it xD usually waiting a crap-load of time before playing it again does the trick for me, so i've spent my car time getting coins for the music(which, i might add, is very well put together!)
