One of the best shmups ever - probably the originator of the genre - is on Atari 2600. Aaaah, retro goodness. If anyone has a working 2600, this game should be in your library.

I agree with this!
I also have the manual for this game and it amazes me to see all the imagination and, well, actual effort put into these old Atari manuals.

.... or something like that.

I just got a GBA after losing mine and I was wondering if someone would reccomend me some games aside from the obvious Marios and Zeldas.

Castlevania Aria of Sorrow is a good one if you like Metroidvania style.

I don't particularly like that style of gameplay and it's pretty expensive. Do you have anything else you'd recommend?

But any 3rd Party games you'd reccomend? RPGs are fine but I'd like something different.

There's no question about it, this is easily the toughest Classic Mega Man in there is known to Robo-kind. :p
Magic, Burner and Dynamo man were pure torture to take down. While King Stage 2's Boss is the toughest boss battle out of all the MM games in my opinion. Although i haven't fully played 6 or 7, so 'those' aside...

And make note of how many times you die against King's flying Tank boss, I'm counting maybe 50. lol :p

Something Different and something cheap? There goes a lot of good GBA games unfortunately. How about Drill Dozer? That's not third-party, though.

I was actually looking into Drill Dozer! I may pick it up. Since most of the GBAs library is RPGs, can someone recommend a RPG that isn't strategy tactical( Fire Emblem style)?

I was more referring to the cheap part, actually. There are plenty of non-RPGs, it's just that they're either expensive or not very good.

Anyways, I can't find any RPGs under $20 now. Breath of Fire is just barely under. Actually, both Summon Nights are cheap. I liked those games. Also, I see that Gunstar Super Heroes went way down in price. That game is amazing. Go get it. Then there's Boktai (forgot the first one still goes for a decent price). Oh and Klonoa 1 and 2.

Nah, it looks pretty solid though, definitly going to get it down the line to plunk it my NesterNES Retro collection B-) And it's got one awesome Heavy pulsating soundtrack that's for sure. And speaking of Journey to Silius, does anybody else find a crazy simularity between these 2 tracks? This is an 80's track by Pseudo Echo, and it sounds strangely simular once the beat kicks in at 0:16 in comparison to Stage 3 in Journey to Silious. Note the PE song came out before the game :o

Has anyone here played NES games on an HD TV? How bad does it look? I think my current tube TV is dead for good, and I won't be able to find a replacement for awhile. I have a ton of NES games I want to play so it really sucks waiting. Any settings I could mess around with that make it look bearable?

Honestly dude? Not too good. The main reason is because of the awful dithering effect that comes with it whenever the background starts scrolling. I can't bare it on either my Plasma or LCD. You're better off getting a small CRT Tube TV at an electronics pawn shop. The good news? They're cheap as hell! B-) For retro gaming, I'd say a 20"-27" will be your best bet.

I may have to look into replacing my 20" Sony 92' Tube TV if in fact the menu controls really are broken on it. Talk about a Beetlejuice bummer!

Geez, that's a bummer! Would you say they look decent enough to play while I get a new CRT TV? I really want to play SMB 2. lol
