And yes, he is (usually) always right, and he is (almost) the sexiest gamer out there (not counting me) ;)

I´ll go for Konami/Palcom and Nintendo. LJN did publish two favorite SNES games though: Alien 3 and Spider-Man & The X-Men: Arcade's Revenge.

I've taken this topic as sarcasm. If Sony_70 wasn't joking, then he would probably be alone in like LJN's BttF games. :)
X-Men awesome? I hear the game was supposed to give you hints after each level to access the last level, but it was broken. And even if it did, the game would've asked you to enter a code that is partially printed on the cart label, which is a bit hard to read WHILE IT'S INSIDE THE (front-loader) NES. :P

Haha, thought so! Hey, you're not going to claim that THQ's Home Alone 2 for the SNES isn't a classic eh?! Otherwise... :'(

LOL

I actually own the cartridge, and yep, it's just as bad as made out to be.

Edit: Silly me, that's not an LJN game! My mistake. I do have The Karate Kid though, as well, which was released by LJN and is as bad as they say.

I only see GC 4.0 happening if I become a English major. Yeah, it is happening now. GC 4.0 will be released in 2020.

T & C Surf was the absolute grenade. B-) Friday the 13th and ANOES weren't too bad either.
And who can forget T & C Surf's SurfAlicious 8-bit chip tunes? One of the best tracks to hit that little grey box of NintenPixel McWonders.

I actually liked Jaws and T&C Surf Designs as a kid.

I'm afraid to play them again. I'd lose all respect for myself.
