Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
A worthy entry in the Fire Emblem series, Radiant Dawn retains the series' fantastic gameplay, minor faults included.
By now most Nintendo fans at least know what Fire Emblem is. The series first saw light in the U.S. when a couple of the characters from the series appeared in Super Smash Bros. Melee, Marth and Roy....
Bare Knuckle II: Shitou no Chinkon Uta
Streets of Rage 2 manages to be a great beat-'em-up and a fine co-op game after all these years.
The Virtual Console has numerous beat-'em-up games, but none come close to Streets of Rage 2 in value and fun. Right off the bat you'll notice that SoR2 features co-op multiplayer. Playing through th...

Just about everyone has played Super Smash Bros. Melee. In Melee, one of the playable characters is the Ice Climbers. Many people who have played the game have, at some point or another, asked thems...
Metroid Fusion is one of the most exhilarating games available for the GBA, and it's a darn good Metroid game, too.
After the release of Super Metroid in 1994, we had to wait 8 long years for a new Metroid adventure. In 2002 we were treated to two new Metroid games: Metroid Prime for the Gamecube and Metroid Fusio...
Super Donkey Kong
One of the best looking SNES games plunges into VC territory without missing a step gameplay-wise.

Punch-Out!! is one of the greatest games of the 8-bit era and it's still classic fun today.
Let's get this out of the way right now; if you've never played Punch-Out!!before, shame on you. This is one of the greatest NES games ever and one of the defining games in, well, gaming! It's a cla...
Star Fox 64
Star Fox 64 is one of the best N64 games of all time and it's still great fun today.
When you think Star Fox, you imagine animals flying around in fighter ships blowing up stuff, right? I thought so. That's why Star Fox is awesome, and Star Fox 64 is probably the best of the bunch. ...
One of the best looking, best sounding, and best playing action games of all time.
For the first two years of its life, the Gamecube didn't have a whole lot to offer to gamers. Super Smash Bros. was the main reason that people bought a 'cube for the first year and at the end of 200...
Metal Slug Anthology
You won't find a better collection of action games anywhere else.

Wii Sports is the perfect example of what a pack-in game for a new system should be.

While Xevious doesn't look great or sound great anymore, it still retains its title as a classic arcade shooter.
Xevious was a fun action shooter for the NES in the 80s. It started its life as an arcade game and moved to the NES, keeping most of its quality intact. While the NES version of the game (the versio...
The Alien Wars is looked at by some as the best game in the Contra series, and for good reason.
Contra III was easily one of the best action games ever available for the SNES. It had fantastic level design, amazing bosses, dual wielding weapons, and maniac gameplay. Every ounce of this early 9...
Mario Kart 64
Mario Kart 64 is a good game to help you remember the good ol' days, but it feels somewhat dull by today's standards.
We've all played at least one of the Mario Kart games before. They're all fun and each one has something special to it. Mario Kart 64, however, is the black sheep of the family. In the latter half ...
The single-player mode doesn't really impress, but the multiplayer mode is very fun and very addictive.
Everyone knows Bomberman. You walk around in labyrinths and bomb stuff. If you've never played Bomberman before then trust me, they're very fun games (most of them). Bomberman '93 is one of the mos...
Gunstar Heroes for the Wii's Virtual Console is one of the best ways to spend $8.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
It's not just an amazingly addicting RPG, it's also a fantastic tale full of wonderful plot points and funny dialogue.
If you've played a Mario RPG before then you know what a great RPG adventure is. The puzzles are fun to figure out, the music is fun and catchy, and the turn-based battles are terribly addictive. ...
Kirby & The Amazing Mirror
From it's solid graphics to it's near-perfect gameplay, Kirby returns in one of the finest GBA platformers out there.
I think any platforming fan can say that Kirby is on his own turf when it comes to the genre. No other gaming character can suck AND blow (man I love that about Kirby :P). But on a serious note, Kir...
Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
This game has a fantastic story and it plays great. It's just too bad the multiplayer was cut down from the PC version.
Jedi Outcast originally came out for the PC. The story was awesome and the multiplayer was endless fun. Now Outcast is on the Gamecube (and Xbox) and it's just as good as the PC version, except the ...

This is the best console-to-handheld port ever, and taking one of the best SNES games on-the-go is just awesome.

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap
It's a short Zelda game and the puzzles can be frustrating, but it's one of the best GBA games and a fantastic package.
The Legend of Zelda games are among the best in the gaming industry. The original Zelda provided an epic adventure that the world had never seen before. A Link to the Past was easily the most beauti...
LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy
Lego Star Wars II is a fantastic adventure game that's both hilarious and fun, even if you think you're too old for it.
Late last year, the Gamecube version of Lego Star Wars was released and I bought it in no time at all. I played it for hours until I collected every minikit piece, every character, and uncovered ever...
Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut
Sonic Adventure DX has to be the most underappreciated game on the Gamecube. The truth is, it's a really fun game.
The original Sonic Adventure came out for the Dreamcast in 1999, and it was one of the greatest games available on the console. Sonic Adventure DX is pretty much the same game, but with A LOT more to...
Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes

The Legend of Zelda Collector's Edition
This disc has four Zelda games including the greatest game of all time (Ocarina of Time). Enough said.

Zelda no Densetsu: 4tsu no Tsurugi+
We don't see many 2D games on the home consoles anymore. Four Swords Adventures proves that 2D gameplay still rocks.
The Legend of Zelda series is just plain awesome, any true gamer knows that. I, like many others, am a HUGE Zelda fan. I don't think I'll ever get sick of saving Zelda's butt over and over, mainly ...
New Super Mario Bros.
New Super Mario Bros. is already one of the finest DS games to date, even if the game is kind of short.
I've been waiting for this game for over a year now, and I couldn't have asked for more out of this game. This game takes you back to the good days of jumping, running, and stomping on goombas. The ...
Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3 (2 Bonus e-Reader Cards)
One of the greatest games of all time is back and with the handheld feel to it, it's better then ever.

Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie
Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie is fantastic on so many different levels.
I think that just about all of us know how video games based on movies end up. That's right, in the bargain bin. King Kong belongs anywhere but the bargain bin, it's absolutely solid. If you've see...
