    I'm up for about half of the games on this list (and about half of the games on the SNES Classic, too), some real good choices. I'll join you in preaching the good of Quintet games, Chrono Trigger's unfortunate no-show (probably because you can still play the NDS game on a 3DS), but what really gets me is the lack of Lufia. Curse of the Sinistrals for the NDS is an *okay* game with *phenomenal* music, I tell you what. But if I have to put it side-by-side with Lufia II? Screw you, Jeros, you're growing up parentless even in a second playthrough because Lufia II is so good. I never finished the game and haven't had the motivation to try again because Square Enix won't release the game on Virtual Console. :s

    But E.V.O.? Really now? You were doing such a good job, and then you brought up E.V.O. No amount of Koichi Sugiyama music will make me play that game ever again, because it is hard as balls and doesn't explain anything about your possible upgrades. Urrrrrrgh. No thanks.

    Yay, Caty name-dropped Rakuen! That game is so good, can't wait to see a write-up down the line. It deserves all the attention it can get and more.

    I'll name-drop RIVE as usual, because it's so much fun (and my name is in the credits somewhere). Other than that, I'll probably pick up Final Fantasy IX and a bunch of puzzle games, even though I have like 60 other games on my wishlist. Sorry guys! My already-purchased backlog is still too big.

    Following up on the Earthbound/MOTHER 4 hack, the game is called Unearthed now. And it's being worked on by a Toronto-based Canadian! Maybe Nadia can bring the guy in when the game is finally finished? That would be a nice change of pace.

    @Jaegermeist3r I have done like zero looking-into the actual working of the Vita, but I am certain that if I got one, I would need an NA account, as the European PSN just lacks so many games. Like, it's not even funny how many games. I wonder how long it will take for Vita to be completely discontinued by Sony, and whether my lack of commitment to getting one will eventually make it a lot more difficult (impossible) for me to easily get one.

    Well, I mean... this is Xbox, right? Is Xbox really that big of a BC brand?

    Thinking of Nintendo or Sony, among my first five thoughts are at least two saying "can I play old games on this device?". Honestly, for most of this year and last year, most of the games I played on my Wii U were old. NES, SNES, N64, GBA, even NDS, I played them all. One GBA game on Virtual Console I played for nigh on 200 hours (but that may just be because I'm crazy). Looking at the games I want to play on my Wii U, I see more old games... GBA Castlevania games, Paper Mario (give us TTYD VC/HD, Nintendo!), so many others. It's been a godsend, really.

    Just two days ago, after I had already read Ryan's comments on BC, my brother came by and suggested I could play his PS4 through Remote Play. My first thought? "Oh God, does this mean I can finally play old PlayStation games?" My brother was like "eh, you shouldn't do that", but screw THAT, I want to play the Suikodens of the world, and Breath of Fire on PlayStation, and whatever else I can get from the PSN. Gimme those glorious old games.

    And really now, Gran Turismo? You can't use a game like THAT to say something about all BC games. That's like saying "FIFA 02 is not being played a lot, so we see gamers don't really play sports games". Really now. Honestly. Pfft.

    UPDATE: I have since found out I can not play PSX games on PS4 after all. Maybe I should get a Vita after all? The case towards owning one becomes stronger still.Edited 3 weeks ago by Unknown

    Ah yes, finally a Western release date for Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology. I've been waiting for this for most of the year.

    Now the wait begins... for announcements of European release dates. ;-;

    Even more than Owlboy, I have been waiting for this game for years. Can't wait to play it once it's finished... Konjak's art is amazing, and not just his pixel art! Sometimes he posts drawings on Twitter, the style's really neat.

    @Thetick Maybe it would have been the first PSX RPG translated into Dutch if it actually existed, but as far as I know the first RPG playable in Dutch is Lufia II.

    ...still a hideous translation, though.

    @benjaminlu86 Crusader of Centy is one of my favourite examples, a Zelda-like game that takes Link's subweapons and replaces them with... animals? It's pretty bonkers, but also great fun, and the music is really good (Noriyuki Iwadare, I believe). Would recommend.
