    1. I have the Jack & Daxter trilogy on Vita. Sadly the ports aren’t very good cause I always wanted to play 2 and 3! Although I did recently play Daxter on the PSP and thought it was awesome πŸ™‚

      1. If you can get the All-Star version, then it’s the better deal as there are 3 more games included in the bundle.

        My opinion is the unpopular one which I can understand. The music in the NES version is definitely better. Also, most people would prefer the first version they played.

  1. This is a pretty solid list! I have a feeling our picks for the mid-to-late nineties will probably be very similar – a lot of timeless games came out during those years.

  2. This is very cool…can I ask a weird question though? How long did it take to research? I feel like it’d take me until next year to find a game for each year of my life (or maybe I’m just old πŸ˜›)

    1. I’m working on one now and ya gotta go to Wikipedia and look up notable video game releases. They have articles listed for each year!

      Answering because I asked the same question somewhere else and someone tipped me off πŸ™‚

  3. Diddy Kong Racing over FFVII?! WHAT? We’re no longer friends…kidding lol, I know how much you love that game, and I enjoyed it greatly, too. Heck, I’d play it right now. It introduced a slew of amazing characters (I’m still disturbed by Conker’s Bad Fur Day) and was just a solid racing game. I don’t know if it was a precursor to Mario Kart, since I have no idea when the first one came out though hehe.

    I’m still working on my list. I got a bit stuck in 1982 because there were a bunch of awesome games released then, though I was worried I’d have trouble between 1980 and the Nintendo Years.

  4. I was kind of predicting you had us set up for a giant swerve there, and just not included one of the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy and laughed at all of us as we were aghast at its omission. Would have been a crazy surreal experience.

  5. Mario Is Missing? Come on now! It may sound like I’m hating but I feel you could’ve came up with something better for 1992. But it was Luigi’s first starring role so I’ll give it that much! Great list overall however!
