With the launch of the A38s, Astro has clearly shown that they can rock our eardrums off even if we aren’t sitting in our living rooms.

With Bungie's leap to next-generation platforms and interstellar space closer to home, I wonder if E.T. is out there somewhere.

While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

I know there are a ton of games I should have for my SNES (which I just unpacked from it's bubble wrapping), but I'm wondering if you guys have any of the more obscure suggestions.

Of course I know Earthbound, FFIII(VI), SMRPG, SMKart, etc etc etc, but can you suggest some lesser known SNES must-have-classics?

Looking through my collection and the other "collection". Don't have any super underground titles, but maybe they are a little less known.

B.O.B. - Platformer/Shooter
Dragon Quest 5 - One of the best RPG's on the system
E.V.O. The Search for Eden - Play trough the stages of evolution.
Lost Vikings 1 & 2 - Really good puzzle platformers
Secret of Evermore - RPG with realtime battle system. Overshadowed by Secret of Mana
Shiren The Wanderer - Roguelike RPG.
Sunset Riders - Shoot'em up similar to Contra set in the wild west. Fun in co-op
Terranigma - Great realtime RPG
Zombies Ate My Neighbours - Awesome co-op


All the Mario and Donkey Kong Country are given and don't forget Super Castlevania IV.

The thing is, I probably will drop the cash on a copy of that game if I'm so inclined.

And thanks for reminding me of ActRaiser. Off to ebay I go on that one.

I've never played this one so that's another on my growing list.

The good Battletoads was for NES/Game Boy. Not sure that the Battlemaniacs sequel was anything special.

Super Bomberman 2 - A classic if you have 4 controllers via a multi-tap adapter.

NBA JAM - Same.

Shadowrun - it's a flawed western RPG with a cyberpunk theme but it's fun if you have a faq handy.

Lots of great suggestions. Can anyone think of publishers that have since died? I want to look through their catalogs for some greats that haven't been brought into the modern downloadable era.

To be honest I never really liked Punch-Out.

Whaaaaat? Lol I loved that game. I even got to the secret circuit. That samurai kicked my ass, hitting you with a blunt staff isn't boxing.
