Nintendo Power Poll - What Games Do You Want To See?

Posted by Damien McFerran

American magazine Nintendo Power is running a poll to determine which retro titles Virtual Console players would most like to see on the service. Once the results are in the magazine will publish the Top 100 most requested titles.

Here's the request as it appears in the magazine:

What classic games do you want to see come to Virtual Console? Send us up to five picks (only for systems currently represented on Virtual Console) at We'll print results in an upcoming issue. Note: This is for polling purposes only, and will in no way determine future Virtual Console releases.

We're sure this will result in some quite outlandish suggestions but it should make for interesting reading regardless; you can bet that someone from Nintendo will read it and hopefully it will represent a good indication of where fans want the service to go next - who knows, maybe the company will sit up and take notice?

Whatever the eventual outcome, here's your chance to make your voice heard.

To submit your recommendations, email five games you would like to see on the Virtual console and email them to:

I am going to email them.
My picks are Vectorman, Pro Wrestling, Super Monico GP, Outrun, and Castlevania Dracula X

Whoops I forgot Super Mario Allstars



DEMON212 said:

MRPG, Drac X, Duck Hunt, Earthbound and I forget what my 3rd choice was. I posted them at the VCF though.



Splutter said:

Personally I'm after Super Mario RPG, Chromo Trigger and Earthbound, and Metal Gear, but I'd put money on the top result in Nintendo Power being Golden"Aint gonna happen"eye



12345678a said:

Castlevania Dracula X, Earthbound, Super Mario RPG (unless it gets that rumoured remake on the DS), Metal Gear (MSX), Alex Kidd.



stevenlindsay23 said:

1. Cannon Fodder - SNES
2. Goldeneye - N64

5. Super Punch out - SNES



That_Guy_from_Faxana said:

Hard to wish for just five, and since I´m not living in US the results won´t make much difference anyway... but perhaps a US release betters the odds for europe too.

Super Mario RPG
Y´s book 1&2
Seiken Densetsu 3
Samurai Shodown



PRP said:

I don't live in US too, but here are my most wanted 5, hoping they come in both US and Europe:
Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask --> N64
Castlevania Dracula X --> TG16
Ghouls 'n ghosts --> TG16
Turrican 2 --> C64
Zack Mc Cracken --> C64



Gazelle said:

I have voted for SquareEnix- and Rare-Games.

  • Chrono Trigger
  • Final Fantasy III
  • Perfect Dark
  • Banjo-Kazooie
  • Terranigma
    I think nintendo will definitely give us every good game of them (like Majora's Mask, DK64, Yoshi's Island, Starfox, Super Mario Kart, Earthbound,...) sometime in the future. But maybe there is still a little bit of hope, that Rare releases some N64-Games and that SquareEnix finally give us their RPGs instead of foolish second-row-games (king's knight, actraiser)!


Adam said:

1. Mother 3
2. Earthbound
3. Mother (Earthbound 0)
4. ...
and the rest don't matter. Stop hating Earthbound fans, Nintendo.



Damo said:

I don't think it really matters if you don't live in the US, they will probably be perfectly happy to count every vote anyway.



Bass_X0 said:

Sorry, but I think its pretty pointless voting for games we know are confirmed not to appear on the Virtual Console (many Rare games, many Square games, Japanese games that need to be translated and many licensed games). But I reckon that won't stop some people voting for the usual suspects.

Anyway, my list would be Rainbow Islands (NES), Parasol Stars (TG16), Stunt Race FX (SNES), Donkey Kong 64 (N64) and King of Fighters '96 (NeoGeo).



Rapadash6 said:

I sent these ones...

1. Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars - SNES
2. Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island - SNES
3. Mega Man X - SNES
4. Goldeneye 007 - N64
5. Super Smash Bros. - N64



strenny said:

I agree with Bass X0 - although there is a really cool collection available already on vc, i would be sooo happy if there would be more cool old multiplayer games ('cause it just rocks so much playing with friends those old ones) which obviously never will see the daylight on the vc. NBA JAM T.E. or Rock n' Roll Racing, Royal Rumble (all SNES), just to mention three...

By the way, if ever such good old multiplayable games come out despite all facts - it would also be great to have some sort of general online feature along with the vc via wifi. Imagine Super Street Fighter online on your Wii.WOOOHOOO!!



Smols said:

1. Chrono Trigger
2. Secret of Mana
3. Super Mario RPG
4. Ken Griffey Junior's Baseball (Even though it will never happen)
5. Earthbound



Roo said:

My e-mail is listed as thus (no order)

Snowbaord Kids 2 (could be a while, but hey: I can ask).
Super Punch-Out!!
Street Fighter Alpha 2
Star Fox 2



thewiirocks said:

I'm surprised that no one has suggested Super Smash Bros 64? Oh well, here we go:

1. Super Mario RPG
2. Star Fox 2
3. Super Smash Bros. 64
4. Tetris Attack
5. Super Mario Collection (SNES)



Quimby said:

Thats easy:
1. Street Fighter Alpha 2
2. Super Punch Out
3. Super Smash Bros.
4. Diddy Kong Racing (Nintendo still own the rights - Rare even made the DS game)
5. Mario RPG



Andrew said:

hmmmm..... let's see

1. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
2. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
3. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
4. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
5. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask



Charco said:

Haven't mailed them yet but will do that now with this list:

1. Super Mario Kart (SNES)
2. Resident Evil 2 (N64)
3. Dracula X: Rondo of Blood (TG-16)
4. Yoshi's Island (SNES)
5. Starfox (SNES)



rbtransformed said:

I would like to see these games in this order:
-Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
-Super Smash Bros. (64)
-Kirby Super Star
-Super Mario RPG

Unfortunately, the last three don't have much of a chance at all since Nintendo apparently hates/ignores it's Earthbound/SMRPG fans and Kirby Super Star is being remade into a DS game. I have never tried Earthbound or SMRPG so I don't have a strong desire to play them, but I would love to try them if the opportunity arose.



Charco said:

I see a few people voting for Starfox 2. Is this the game that was never released on SNES? What was the story with that, why was it canned? Was it released in Japan?



Bass_X0 said:

4. Diddy Kong Racing (Nintendo still own the rights - Rare even made the DS game)

Ah, but Rare took out Banjo and Conker because they won't let those two characters on a Nintendo machine anymore. For DKR to appear on VC, those two characters would have to be removed completely.



Damo said:

@Charco - It was never released but was very close to being complete. If you look hard enough you can find the beta ROM on the net, it's perfectly playable.

As for it coming out on the VC - it would be an amazing development but I'm not holding my breath.



2hip2beskware said:

My Picks:

  • Chrono Trigger
  • Earthbound
  • Majora's Mask
  • Mother
  • Final Fantasy IV

These are all RPG's, because the VC is short on them... and I like them.



Charco said:

@Damo - Oh right, strange that they would have an almost finished version of a game that would have done well and decided not to go ahead with it? It would be cool if they finished it and released it alright. I am intrigued...



Eva said:

I've had a think and come up the following:

1) Starfox 2 (SNES)
2) The Firemen (SNES)
3) Super Mario RPG (SNES)
4) Final Fight CD (Mega-CD)
5) Virtual Boy Wario Land (Virtual Boy)

Yes Starfox 2 was never released, but they did so much work they might as well make a little off it. And yes two of those are on systems not supported, but that could change. I probably would have picked something other than VB Wario, but the recent April Fool prank has got me thinking loving thoughts.



Edwin said:

Just sent these:
Majora's Mask
Super Mario Kart
Super Mario RPG
Super Star Wars
Star Wars: Rogue Squadron



Damo said:

@Charco - There was a 'Whatever Happened to' feature in Retro Gamer magazine a while back on Starfox 2, basically the guys behind it said that Nintendo took one look at the emerging 32-bit consoles and decided that Starfox 2 looked so primative it decided to cancel the release in case it made the Nintendo brand look inferior to Sony and Sega's new machines.

That's one of the theories, anyway. It was a difficult time for Nintendo with the Virtual Boy and many other projects floating around, apparently internal politics was rife at the time. Starfox 2 was a casualty of those problems.



CuzinMike said:

1) Crystalis - NES
2) Castlevania 3 - NES
3) Strider - MD/Genesis
4) The Goonies II - NES
5) Maniac Manison - NES
6) Lufia & The Fortress of Doom - SNES



Eva said:

Arggghh. I can't believe I forgot Metal Gear 2. OK another system not supported (apart from in Japan), but you never know.



BulbasaurusRex said:

1. TMNT 2 (NES)
2. TMNT 3 (NES)
3. TMNT 4 (SNES)
4. NBA Jam: Tournament Edition (Genesis)
5. Goldeneye (N64)

I also want to see the Sega 32X system added.



Stuffgamer1 said:

1. Earthbound
2. Chrono Trigger
3. Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
4. Terranigma
5. Soul Blazer

Am I the only one here who still loves Soul Blazer? It's one of the best SNES games ever released (based on this list, number 5, although since Terranigma was never released in the U.S., I can't be sure of its true position)! I'm proud to say I've reached level 50 in Soul Blazer (if you've played the game, you know the significance of this. If not, it's actually just a waste of time since the game is perfectly beatable at level 24, which is where normal game progression puts you when you reach the final boss)!



Charco said:

@Eva - I thought my Resident Evil 2 was an interesting one but Final Fight CD on Mega CD beats my choice. I never knew this game was released on Mega CD until about a week ago! I presume it had all three characters and simultaneous 2 player support which the SNES version lacked?



NikeXTC said:

Besides the most wanted games that we'll probably get in any case (Majora's Mask, Super Mario Kart anyone?) I'd say these five...

-[SNES] Super Mario RPG (never released in Europe, so I'm a bit worried if this will come out)
-[N64] The New Tetris
-[NES] RC Pro-AM
-[SNES] Stunt Race FX
-[SNES] Uniracers/Unirally



Laxiom said:

Damo; is there anyway you could add the direct quote to the article, NP kinda made a few requirements.


what classic games do you want to see come to Virtual Console? Send us up to five picks (only for systems currently represented on Virtual Console) at We'll print results in an upcoming issue. Note: This is for polling purposes only, and will in no way determine future Virtual Console releases.



Shortay said:

I'll email them later, even though it won't make any difference to which titles Nintendo will release. These are my 5 most wanted, regardless of whether we will get them eventually or not:

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (N64)
Eathbound (SNES)
Yoshi's Island (SNES)
Super Mario RPG (SNES)
Kirby Super Star/Fun Pak (SNES)



Sharecrow said:

I went ahead and emailed them. I bet most of my picks don't even make the top 100 list, though. It'll be interesting to see...



konkerdoodle said:

1. Super Mario Kart
2. Super Smash Bros.
3. Super Mario RPG
4. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
5. Kirby Super Star

What is it with Nintendo and "Super" games? Everything's gotta be super!



Link_O_Fett said:

Hmm.. I think these would be the five I want the most.

Super Smash Bros. (N64)
Star Fox (SNES)
Goldeneye 007 (N64)
Ken Griffey Jr.'s Baseball (SNES)
Super Mario All-Star's (SNES)

Goldeneye and especially Griffey are fairly unlikely, but hopefully it happens. Two of my all time favs.



lockelocke said:

1. Tetris Attack
2. Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
3. Earthworm Jim 2
4. Space Harrier
5. Star Fox 2 (just started playing beta ROM!)

These were my suggestions.
1. Wetrix (Prolly my favorite game of all time. I was addicted like crack) N64
2. Street Fighter Alpha II SNES
3. Killer Instinct SNES
4. The Lost Vikings SNES
5. Rock & Roll Racing SNES (Olaf Blasts Into First!!!)

Ahh...the fond memories, playing these games into the wee hours of the morning w/ friends.



Kelvin said:

Nintendo Power is semi-official, isn't it? So perhaps Nintendo US at least will be looking at the results.

Here's my five, in no particular order:
Chrono Trigger (SNES)
Yoshi's Island (SNES)
Turrican 2 (C64)
Creatures 2 (C64)
NHLPA Hockey '93 (Mega Drive)

Eva said:

@Charco (re: Final Fight CD)
Yep 2 player and all three characters. It also had the stage that was missing from the SNES version. Better music too.

Matt_Thorndark said:

Man, you guys had a lot of the same ideas I had.

9. PRP Italy 03 Apr 2008, 14:38 GMT
Turrican 2 --> C64

Ooh, I SHOULD have voted for that one too! I love the AMIGA version, and playing C64 Turrican on Virtual Console would be amazing...

Come to think of it, why aren´t Golden Axe Warrior and Ninja Gaiden for MS on my list? Oh well... how far can you go with 5 titles =S



Phantom5800 said:

I emailed them, but I know that this will most likely not make any impact:

1. Super Mario RPG
2. Earthbound
3. Donkey Kong 64
4. Any Fire Emblem (imported and translated)
5. Bomberman 64



CrazyOtto said:

Kirby Superstar (SNES)
Sonic 3 & Knuckles (Genesis)

Splatterhouse 3 (Genesis)



Dathcha said:

Well, I just mailed my wishlist...
As much as I want these all, I have little hope for any of them showing up before the end of the year, and some not even after that...

1) Flashback (SNES)
2) Xenon 2 Megablast (Sega MegaDrive)
3) MegaMan X (SNES)
4) The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask (N64)
5) Aladdin (SNES)

Oh, and instead of Aladdin on the SNES, The Lion King on the SNES would also be good of course as they are essentially the same game, but with a different skin... Still, unlikely to appear I suspect...



Zinjak said:

1)sonic cd
2)Super Mario RPG: Legend of the seven stars

5)virtual boy wario land.



Jarsonic said:

My list:

1.) Chrono Trigger
2.) Final Fantasy III
3.) Super Mario RPG
4.) Earthbound
5.) Secret of Mana

What's the reasoning people have been giving as to why Square games are unlikely to come to the Virtual Console?



Jace said:

1. Wetrix (N64)
2. Rayman 2: The Great Escape (N64)
3. Mischief Makers (N64)
4. Ogre Battle 64 (N64)
5. Pulseman (Megadrive/Genesis)

If Rare titles were possible, BLAST CORPS (N64) would be my #1.



Jogurt_the_Yogurt said:

1. Romance of the Three Kingdoms (NES)
2. Romance of the Three Kingdoms II (SNES)
3. Romance of the Three Kingdoms III (SNES)
4. Gemfire (SNES)
5. Warsong (Genesis) — Bring it to North America already!



Atlantis1982 said:

These are my favorites that I want to see:

1. Turok 2 (N64)
2. Zero Wing (Genesis)
3. Twinkle Star Sprites (NeoGeo)
4. Mutant League Football (Genesis)
5. Turok 1 (N64)

At least these games are more realistic than some of you people are suggesting.

(cough) SMRPG and Mother (cough)

#3) Gargoyle's Quest 2 (nes)
#4) Castlevania Dracula X: Rondo of Blood (TurboGrafx-16)
#5) Super Mario RPG (Super Nintendo)

(close but didn't quite make the top 5: Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals)



Tides_of_Chaos said:

This is the list I gave them in order from least wanted to most wanted but I really wish it was top 10 and actually had an influence on what games would appear.
Top 5 wanted Virtual Console games:
#5: Earthbound Zero (NES) (finished but never released)
#4: Earthbound (SNES)
#3: Star Fox 2 (SNES) (finished but never released)
#2: Star Fox (SNES)
#1: Super Mario RPG: Legend of the 7 Stars (SNES)

If numbers 5 and 3 are not eligible, then I would have:
#5: Marble Madness (NES)
#4: Earthbound (SNES)
#3: Sonic the Hedgehog (Master Sytem)
#2: Star Fox (SNES)
#1: Super Mario RPG: Legend of the 7 Stars (SNES)
Oh, and remember guys, you can't send them games from systems that aren't on the VC yet.

Super Smash Bros. 64

It would be great if we can have a say on future game releases. Here's my wish list.

Mario Kart (SNES)
Mario RPG (SNES)
Yoshi's Island (SNES)
Desert Strike (SNES)
Mario All Stars (SNES)

Actually Aladdin for the SNES and Olympic Gold for the Mega-Drive would still be on my list and if I can include Killer Instinct and Mortal kombat?. Better stop because my list could go on forever!!

lockelocke said:

Flashback! What a sick game, and I had totally forgotten about it. Used to play it across like 6 floppy disks on my old mac, and at a Blockbuster by my old pad. Definately a contender for me, though I already sent in my five games.

Also, how could I forget? NBA Jam most definately needs a VC release.



Clayfrd said:

I submitted
1) Super Mario RPG
2) Yoshi's Island
3) Kirby Super Star
4) Mario Party 2
5) Earthbound

I didn't know Nintendo Power was US only. I read this article in NP the other day, but I forgot to vote. Thanks for reminding me.



Airola said:

I know these titles will get close to zero votes so no-one's probably going to notice them (except for Mischief Makers perhaps) but here it goes anyway:

1. Gogo the Ghost (C64)
2. Mischief Makers (N64)
3. Kickle Cubicle (NES)
4. Platoon (C64)
5. Gold Medal Challenge (NES)

2. Sonic CD (Mega CD)
3. Flashback (Megadrive)
4. Mario Kart (SNES)
5. Creatures2 (C64)

So there you have it, its not in a particular order and I know they have all been mentioned by someone else here already, but they are just games I really want. Contenders for a top ten include:

6. Terminator2 (C64)
7. Micro machines2 (Mega drive)
8. Revenge of Shinobi (Mega Drive)
9. Another world (Mega drive)
10. Lemmings (any)

Fireballmario said:

I expect to see the following on the VC, but there is no gaurenteed.
P.S. There are more than 5.

Super Smash Bros. (N64)
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the 7 Stars (SNES)
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (N64)
Super Mario Kart (SNES)
Earthbound (SNES)
Starfox (SNES)
Metal Gear (NES)
Duck Hunt (NES)
Pokemon Stadium (N64)

Hey You Pikachu (N64)
Mario Party (N64)
Mario Party 2 (N64)
Mario Party 3 (N64)
Yoshi's Island (SNES)
Donkey Kong 64 (N64)
Diddy Kong Racing (N64)
Mario and Wario (Import) System: Unknown, if you can tell me post it on the site.
Tiny Toons: SNES
2 that could make an appearance, but most likely not.
Starfox 2 (SNES) Never Released
Earthbound Zero (NES) Never Released
I only learned about the last 2 on this site and even though they were never released this would be a perfect place for them to come out.
P.S. The N64 and the SNES seem to have the best games.
Next Few are kinda stupid but there Mario games, can't blame me for giving Mario even more fame.
Mario Paint (SNES)
Mario is Missing (SNES)
Mario All-Stars (SNES)
Mario's Time Machine (SNES) Maybe it has a differnet name?
These are some of Mario's more failed games, but i don't no, maybe they will appear who knows?
One game that dosen't have its system reeleased for VC, but it should be released.
Nights into Dreams, some Sega System.
All of these should at least be released in North America.

I don't really buy a whole lot of VC titles in general, but these are ones I'd totally purchase. Glad I'm not the ONLY person that put down Guardian Legend. Such a great game, but use the suspend feature of the VC, trust me. The in-game passwords are horrible!

It's the only Nintendo system I didn't own besides the VB boy, but there's a reason for that at least.



Jace said:

Re: Tides of Chaos' list:

Yes! Sonic on Sega Master system is so great, and so overlooked. Probably my third favorite Sonic title (after Sonic 3 and Sonic CD).



Ragnor said:

I would like to see:

Star Ocean (SNES): Never released outside of Japan, however with the PSP remake confirmed for localisation, I think it should be localised and released. I played a fan-translated version, and it was brilliant.
Sonic CD (Mega CD): Hailed by many as the best 2D Sonic, if Sega decides to follow Hudson's example and add Mega CD support to the Mega Drive area, I'm sure this would be a best seller. They could also add 32x support at the same time, for my following request
Knuckles Chaotix (Sega 32X): The only classic Sonic game I have never played, I would love to see this on the VC.
Doom 64 (N64): I hear much talk of Doom 64 and how great an experience it was for many Doom fans, with its atmosphere and overall feel being so different to any other version of the classic Doom games.
Ultima IV (Sega Master System): My very first RPG, I spent hours and hours on this as a kid, even though I never really knew what I was doing. To be able to play it again after all these years would be great, and the NES version, from what I've seen, is so different

1. Conker's Bad Fur Day
2. Super Mario RPG
3. Kirby's Fun Pak
4. Earthbound
5. Starfox 2 (the never released one for the SNES), if not possible Hogan's Alley (with Wii Zapper compatibility)

@luigison: Stafy (yes, it's Stafy, not Starfy, you can read it in Stafy 2 or in M&L1) couldn't be voted in this poll because afaik Stafy was only released on the GBA, and the GBA hasn't been released yet.
You couldn't vote for C64 games either because the US don't have them yet

1. Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire (N64)

2. Golden Eye (N64)

3. Star Wars: Rogue Squadron (N64)

4. Pilotwings 64 (N64)

5. Knuckles Chaotix (Sega 32X)

(Hey a man can dream can't he???)



KCar said:

1. Ganbare Goemon 4 (translated preferably)
2. Recca
3. Little Samson
4. Kirby's Dreamland 3
5. Any SNES Fire Emblem (again, translated)

Dare to dream - I know they aren't going to bother localizing games that sell for 8-10 dollars, but man that would be great. I'll say it again - I'd like to see Nintendo license previously existing fan translations of ROMS, though some may see that as a legitmization of piracy. But if the work's already done, why shouldn't we see these games on the VC translated? And wouldn't it be nice to see the hard work of those translators and programmers recognized (something akin to the makers of Counterstike being hired by Valve).

@Damo - You're close on the story of Starfox 2. Nintendo/Argonaut is on record as saying that the problem was that Starfox 2 was so late in the SNES's life that the N64 was going to be released a few months after Starfox 2 was supposed to ship. The feeling was that a 3D game on the SNES so close to the N64 would only detract from the N64's launch. So the decision was made to shelve Starfox 2 and work on an N64 title. (Starfox 64)

Of course, the N64 (then ULLLLLLLLLTRRRAAAAAAA SIIIIIXXXXXXXTTTTTTYYYY FOOOOOUUURRR!) was delayed by almost a year beyond its original release date, they could have released Starfox 2 and everything would have been fine. Oh well, hindsight is 20/20.

Majora's Mask is the only game I want...
But I emailed them anyway and gave them my top 5.

1. Majora's Mask
2. Kirby Superstar
3. Metal Warriors
4. Chrono Trigger
5. Secret of Mana



slangman said:

My 5 most wanted titles are:

Chrono Trigger (SNES)
Super Mario RPG (SNES)
Earthbound (SNES)
Mark Of The Wolves (NEO GEO)
Banghi-O (N64)



worrybomb said:

I have written these as my five for release.

1) Earthbound (SNES)
2) U.N. Squadron (SNES)
3) Super Mario RPG (SNES)
4) Secret of Mana (SNES)
5) The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (N64)

4 out of the 5 everyone seems to know. In case you don't know what "U.N. Squadron" is, it's a shmup. I know, I know. Why do we need more shmups? Because this particular game is a GREAT shmup. I hope U.N. Squadron does get released to the VC in the near future.



Kenpachi_Zaraki said:

1)The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask N64

2. Lemmings 2: Tribes
3. Zelda: Majora's Mask
4. Chrono Trigger (Never played it before; desperate now
5. Super Smash TV



RoninDennis said:

It's a bit silly to ask for games that will get released anyway (Zelda, Kirby or Mario games), so I'm going for the grey area:
1) Go! Go! Troublemakers/Mischiefmakers! (N64)
2) Double Dragon 2 (NES)
3) Bionic Commando (NES)
4) Earthbound (SNES)
5) Pop 'n'Twinbee (SNES)



timp29 said:

LOL I'll probably get laughed at...

1) Zelda - Majoras Mask (N64)
2) The Last Ninja 2 (C64)
3) The Last Ninja (C64)
4) Goldeneye (N64)
5) Wizards and Warriors II - Ironsword (NES)

Zelda games rock in general, I grew up on the C64 and last ninja has major nostalgia for me, goldeneye was awesome, especially meeting the bonus time on the second level on hard, and wizards and warriors ii because i could never beat the bosses as a kid and it still bugs me

Other games... paper boy (NES) funny stuff, and whoever said mario all-stars (SNES) is a genius save me heaps of money



Mikaro said:

I voted:
1. Chrono Trigger

baltzar said:

There are a few games, back in the old days, that had a special feeling for me. A feeling of loneliness in a strange world. These games are:
Another world (Out of this world) - SNES
Alien 3 - SNES
Blaster master - NES
Willow - NES
Shadowgate -NES

I would really like to get Shadow of the beast from Psygnosis but thats on Atari, and that's a system we probably won't see on the VC.
