That is a sweet game, my favorite RTS ever. Story and campaign are crappy compared to Starcraft, but the effects and unit variety pwn Starcraft's, and I think it came out a year before Starcraft. Supreme Commander is kinda the sequel (made by the same guy), and it makes me wish I had a good enough computer to play it.
Old games that run on my computer FTW!!!

Yeah, Supreme Commander came out last week. The screenshots look amazing, the unit size range is huge, theres monster units walking among tiny units with explosions all over, and I think most ships are also submarines so you can sneak attack.
Get it and tell me how it is. :wink:

1. Princess Crown for Saturn, it was like a sidescrolling Final Fantasy only you would combat enemies in a Samurai Showdown style.

2. Guardian Heroes for Saturn, probably the most fun game ever, imagine a mix between Street Fighter, Gunstar Heroes, Streets of Rage and if you play the vs mode, Super Smash Brothers. 6 people can play at one time and leads to an amazing game.

3. Der Langrisser for PCFX, a stategy RPG that is in a language that I can't read but has so much in the gameplay. It plays similar to Fire Emblem, but there are groups of soldiers you control, like an army. A game that I've done through 4 times and it still as good as the first time I played it.

4. Shenmue Episodes 1+2(I group them together)for Sega Dreamcast. The most immersive and thought through game I've ever played. The similarities to Japanese coastal life is just mind boggling.

5. Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu Adventure for PC Engine. Awesome platformer, all I really have to say here. Graphics might not be the best ever, but the music was very Jackie Chanish, which is very good.

That's just my 5 cents.

I'd say its a tie between the original Clock Tower for SNES, and Starfox 2 (WHY didnt you release it Nintendo?).

I already made two custom Starfox 2 carts, and plan to make a Clock Tower cart in the future. I would have made them already but I cant get my damn Willem burner to program the 27c801 without error.. I had to mail the eproms to a friend for the Starfox 2s.. When I get it sorted out in the future i'll help you with that SD3 cart TurboTax.

Starfox 2 cart for anyone interested. (please note that in this pic, I had the eprom soldered in backwards. DUMB time consuming mistake :x

Baten Kaitos-No one I talk to has figured out how that name is pronounced.I've heard it done like four different ways. :lol:
Shadow the Hedgehog-Really, I haven't figured out where all the bad stuff mentioned in the reviews is.Mabey they played a copy from a alternate universe or something.
Baten Kaitos Origins-Not as cool as Baten Kaitos and blisteringly difficult, but come on EGM!A four!?It's at least a 8! :evil:
I'll list out the rest later.
