Is Gremlins 2 set at Christmas time? I know the first movie was.

Die Hard is a little too pricey for a playthrough. Smiley

I've suggested a few to Single Banana but I'll post a few retro's here too. I realize the length or difficulty of the game is very important. I also think the less mainstream the better as I believe a play-through would be more enjoyable with games we all don't know like the back of our hands. Finally, a game that you can talk about. I love Marble Madness as much as the next guy, but I really don't have anything to say about it.

Phantasy Star (SMS) - My favorite game. Criminally underrated because very few people played it when it came out. The best graphics ever on an 8-bit system (fact), great music, great animation, charming, smart, deep, inventive, unique. It's a shame so few people played this when it came out. It came out in 1987 and is still /insert positive adjective/ than most 16-bit RPGs.

Phantasy Star II (GEN) - My other favorite game. So far ahead of it's time. A top echelon plot, ground breaking storyline (a certain RPG copied part of it and got credit for being so innovative), and one of the best endings in video game history.

Starflight (GEN) - Very unique and should be a new experience for most people. I think it would spur a lot of discussion because it's not straight-forward and there are a ton of variables.

Act Raiser (SNES) - An excellent action/sim game. The length, difficultly, and availability would make a great play-through.

Out of this World/Another World (3DO, SNES, GEN, PC, other?) - Above average difficulty, very unique, nice password system, not everyone has played it.

Strider (NES and GEN) - I saw this posted earlier. Two completely different games but both fun. One by itself might be too short for a play-through, but the both of them combined would be great.

Some quickies

Young Merlin (SNES) - A pretty fun Zelda-style game. Never finished it, got stuck near the end.

Kid Icarus (NES) - Can't believe they never made a Super Nintendo version. Could've been great.

Zillion (SMS) - Sega's Metroid. Unfortunately, no password.

Shadow Run (SNES) - Cyberpunk heaven.

I really like a lot of these suggestions.  I know it's been mentioned a lot already, but I've had the Phantasy Star series on my mind since I've recently acquired most of the series.  Shadowrun is another game I was considering suggesting myself.  I played that one a good bit as a kid but could never get very far....

These are all good suggestions and we will definitely take them into consideration. I would like to run some SMS titles in the future, but have concerns that many of our members do not have that system. Good thing there are power converters out there, though at the cost of those and the price of the game(s) it might be tough. Maybe I could start a thread so see how many members would be interested in SMS titles.

BTW, my local store has a boxed converter for $30 if anyone needs it. Smiley

I'm a big SMS guy. Atrocious marketing and no third party support was it's biggest saboteur. There are very few good games unique to the console. A lot of sports/shooting games, games that can be found on Genesis, and games that have a simple presentation akin to early NES games.

I know the library very well and I can only think of 4 or 5 good games that would work for a play-through.

Man SMS has the best version of Double Dragon! It actually has two player support and better graphics. NES can suck it!
