    Probably either a SNES or a PS1 because of all the RPGs.

    If Billy Mitchell did resort to cheating its a sad day. I can only assume that after sitting at the top with Donkey Kong for so long it must have really hurt him to fall so far (not even in the top 10 right now). But if I recall, there was some controversy even in the King of Kong about one of his submission tapes, right? Steve Wiebe's tape was dismissed, but Billy's was accepted, initially, even though it had similar flaws that could be masking cheating.

    That's IF he actually cheated - which I'm not necessarily convinced of. The GIFs don't seem conclusive to me, for the reasons@BulkSlash says, above.

    On a side note, it's really amazing what King of Kong did for that game. There's so much competition there now, and all these great players nobody knew about! We've got to be approaching the score limit for that game.

    I already own all these games on earlier platforms... but I think I'll probably be dipping in again, because that is a very thorough and convenient collection. My only complaint is that it doesn't have Alpha 2 Gold.

    Yeah, I remember when this happened thinking that there might be an FTC investigation or something, it sounded so anticompetitive. I much preferred the variety back then. I really liked the 2K series and I also liked the more arcadey stuff like Blitz. The fact that everyone was making NFL games meant the developers had to adopt various approaches in order to differentiate themselves. But after this that all ended and I can't recall that I've bought a football game since.

    I gotta go with Freezeezy Peak from Banjo and Kazooie. I like some of the other choices here though, especially SSX 3 - what a great game that was!

    I don't think I'm playing anything this weekend, I'm watching Stranger Things.

    Not only a series, but a whole genre. I have never played an MMO. Not World of Warcraft, not any of them. I have also, come to think of it, never played a Call of Duty game, except for a demo. So I guess those are both pretty big deals. I'm not sorry though, personally. More power to anyone that likes them but I'm just not very interested in games that are primarily multiplayer focused. Or FPS games. I remember playing Doom 2 as a kid and not really liking it. To this day the FPS games that I've really liked can probably be counted on one hand. Well anyway, to each his own.

    Well, I guess it depends on what "bettered" means. The first time I played Odin Sphere I thought it was probably the best that 2D games were ever going to look (because I figured very few people would make them going forward). Instead there was a bit of a 2D renaissance and so Odin Sphere now sits among a group of highly polished 2D games.

    As for 3D games, I really can't say... but I can say exactly the first time I realized that I didn't care about graphics getting better anymore. That moment came when playing Rogue Leader no the gamecube. I very clearly remember thinking "If graphics never get better than this I'll be okay." That game still looks pretty good today actually.

    Posted in USgamer Community Question: What Older Game Did You Think Had Graphics That Would Never Be Bettered?

    If I can only choose one, it has to be Chrono Trigger.

    But really, you could put so many more. I've been working on a personal curated list for something of a custom SNES Classic I'm planning to make and I wound up with well over 200 games (including a number of imports) that I determined were at least worth playing, although not all of them are what you'd call classics.

    I think an honorable mention could go to Earth Worm Jim - one of the first games I played that felt really fully animated. Obviously as a 16-bit game it can't be nearly as animated as Wario Land Shake It, et al, but it was impressively expressive at the time.
