Glad you've mentioned Doom 64, the most underrated incarnation of Doom ever, and we really need a good FPS on the virtual console. I wouldn't mind seeing the N64 version of Quake either.

1. Turrican (C64 but preferably AMIGA)
2. Turrican 2 (C64 but preferably AMIGA)
3. Doom 64 (N64)
4. Super Soccer (SNES)
5. Yoshi's Island (SNES)



Markusthe3rd commented on Star Fox 64:

It looks a little rough around the edges nowadays but it's still the first game of that particular console generation I ever owned and is amazingly enjoyable. The dogfight levels in particular are great.



Markusthe3rd commented on Super Metroid:

Has there ever been a better example of 2D game design than this? The game was dripping in so much atmosphere.



Markusthe3rd commented on Super Turrican 2:

Comparing Turrican to Metroid is like comparing R-Type to Colony Wars. Different genres. The fact they are 2D and both scroll doesn't make them the same game. Both are excellent. The Amiga versions of Turrican 1 and 2 are sublime and the epitaph of what the system was technically capable of, aswell as raising the benchmark for platform shooter game design. If the Amiga ever appears on the VC sporting the original Turrican and Turrican II, it will be a happy day.
