One of the greatest shooters ever made - especially in it's original arcade form.
Tecmo's fantastic sequel to the arcade and NES classics, Rygar: The Legendary Adventure is a masterpiece of gameplay, graphics and music. Sure, it may be a little short, but with all of the secrets and extras to find and unlock, you'll be coming back and playing this one for a long time to come. I know I will. ^_^
I'd heard a lot of complaints about Gradius IV before I played it - but after playing it, I have to admit I can't see what they're bitching about. This is a great game! To top it all off, it was bundled with Gradius III on one disc for release here in the U.S. Fantastic.
I love this game. Wacky Japanese humor, gorgeous graphics, fantastic gameplay (of course - it's a parody of Gradius) and references to every Konami series created since the company started - what's not to love?
Space Harrier with a twist, and seeing as how I love Space Harrier to begin with, you can imagine why this one ranks so high on my list. Too bad it's not very well known.
It's everything the original Metroid was - but about 10,000 times better.
The only game in the G'NG series that I like better than the phenomenal SNES game. The Genesis version was great, but the original arcade version is the best.
Another Gradius side story - and a jaw-dropping one at that. Too bad it's a bit on the easy side... good thing it's incredibly fun to play.
One of my favorite NES games, this quirky little offbeat title is known for being exceedingly strange, but very fun to play.
One of the games that cemented my decision to buy a Genesis, and still an absolute blast to play to this day.
