damn, super puzzle fighter was the shit. I'm tackin' that on the end of my list.
Download this EP I made. The songs are pretty close to where they should be. I colaborated with Brian Wilson and Thom Yorke and then we all fucked in my basement apartment. Thom has a really big dick suprisingly, and Brian Wilson cried the whole time, yelling "These moans are not in perfect harmonic unison". Anyway, it sounds like what you would imagine something from that situation sounds like.

Help! There was a game for the original NES that, I believe, started with a K, the hero's name (but it could be I'm thinking of the manufacturer, Konami?). He worked solo, conquering levels from left to right, except maybe there was a level where he descended a wall of ice, and one where he climbed a tower. He was a jaunty, muscular bald guy with a mustache. The music was also jaunty, mid-tempo organ music. The final boss was a T-Rex. WHAT IS THE NAME OF THIS GAME???!!1 I've looked in databases & websites but no luck. It was a swell game and my ballot will be incomplete without it. Thanks.

I'm sure GTA 4 would have made my list, but since I haven't had a gaming console since 2000 I won't get to play it. Waiting patiently for PC version.

Yeah, really great. I'm currently deciding just how high I should put team fortress 2 on my list. In fact, there's going to be quite a few online games I reckon breaking my top 10.

here's my hasty, thrown together (finals/work) list. Completely biased, I realize, and based more on memory than actual decency. Feel free to not count it, as I'm a lurker and don't want to muck up statistics of people who matter. Only put the console when there might be a mix up, but I can clarify any of the other ones. 1. Super Mario Bros. 3 2. Chrono Trigger 3. Legend of Zelda 4. Super Mario Bros. 5. Final Fantasy III 6. Super Mario World 7. Final Fantasy 8. Goldeneye 007 9. Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 10. Bubble Bobble 11. Starcraft 12. Final Fantasy Tactics 13. Day of the Tentacle 14. Legend of Zelda: A Link the the Past 15. Harvest Moon 64 16. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (PC) 17.Bioshock (X360) 18. Pikmin 19. Mario Kart 64 20. X-Com UFO Defense (PC) 21. Half-Life 2 (PC) 22. Final Fantasy VII 23. Earthbound 24. Civilization II 25. Secret of Mana 26. Starfox (N64) 27. Dr. Mario (NES) 28. Half-life 29. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 30. Rollercoaster Tycoon 31. Call of Duty 4 (X360) 32. Katamari Damacy 33. Contra 34. Vagrant Story 35. Super Smash Brothers: Brawl 36. Zombies Ate My Neighbors (GEN) 37. Milon's Secret Castle 38. Alpha Centauri (PC) 39. Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening 40. Dead Rising 41. Vandal Hearts 42. Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest 43. Faxanadu 44. Tetris 45. Rock Band (X360) 46. Final Fantasy XII 47. Pokemon Red 48. Minesweeper 49. Aladdin (GEN) 50. Oddworld: Abe's Oddessy 51. Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? Nice list, Montana. Holy crap did I spend forever playing King's Quest as a kid. (Apple IIgs maybe?) Never seemed to get anywhere though. Whoever said Deadly Towers, you are my hero.

After much evaluation, I've come to the conclusion that game is a failure.I know I hyped it and recommended it when it first came out, but it's just stale and not half the game TFC was.

Tough to rank 'em, too. Do I rank for their nostalgic joy they bring, or for their overall design, or for playability?
