    It will ultimately depend on the line up, but I will probably buy this. Assuming they can't get any of the Rare stuff, that will be a bummer for sure. However N64 games look really rough - even worse than pixel art stuff - if you do not hook it up to your TV in the proper way. So for me, just having a way to play Ocarina and Mario 64 and hopefully Pilot Wings, Mario Kart, etc with adequate visibility thanks to HDMI will definitely be worth something.

    Long shot game to hope for? Legend of the Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon, which is a somewhat janky but charming Zelda-style adventure. I really love that game and it's goofy theme song.

    The remake aspect doesn't necessarily concern me. It can and hopefully will still feel very fresh, what with the whole first time in HD and all that. But from what I was reading, it sounds like there also may be some Pokemon Go integration, and that could be really unfortunate if done poorly. Anyway, I'm very much in wait and see mode myself.

    How about a proper Legend of Zelda game - maybe they could bring that back? Lol, just kidding - that’s a joke guys.

    But in all seriousness, I would love to see some of the “traditional” action/adventure franchises get new entries. How about Landstalker, Alundra, Beyond/Legend of Oasis, Brave Fencer Musashi, Legend of the Mystical Ninja (I’m thinking of the more Zelda-esque ones, like the N64 game). All of these franchises received two or more entries but are long abandoned. A lot of the features or mechanics of these games have kind of been absorbed into other genres, but I would love to see something in the more classic vein again.

    Wow. Very different than what I was expecting or hoping for. I really would have been fine just playing as Jade and continuing her story. I guess, in fairness to the developers, I can't completely write this off yet. We'll have to see how the single player experience turns out. Other than that, I have no interest in a multiplayer RPG.

    @jeffcorry Yeah, people are always saying it's the worst of the NES games but honestly I really like it. For whatever reason (probably the cover art) it was the one that I rented over and over when I was a kid. I have trouble going back to the pre-megabuster games, they feel like they're missing something. I just think Mega Man 4 is really solid, and a good entry point for the series, since I think it's quite a bit easier than 2 or 3.

    Great question! After thinking about it:

    Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
    Final Fantasy VII
    Mega Man 4
    Super Mario World

    If I could add one more it would have been Sonic 2. Sonic 2 and Mario World are basically tied for me.

    Well I read the book, and I enjoyed it overall. But I also never took it for more than it was. I feel that this book may have been overpraised when it first came out, and that in turn inspired a hyperbolic backlash. It's a pulpy page-turner sort of affair that's very squarely aimed at entertainment rather than serious literature. I'm fine with that, personally, but obviously one's mileage may vary.

    I'm sure I'll see the movie, and I'll go into that with similar expectations.Edited March 2018 by Unknown

    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.
