Upon getting my games typed up the other night into Excel I thought to myself that it would be cool to start a thread that took two systems (any Console or PC) with 5-10 games for each and pit them against each other. The question is which system of 5-10 games would you take and why. Picture yourself stranded on a deserted island or you're off to heaven... either way, you can only pick one system with it's 5-10 games to take with you for eternity.
I figured if this took off well enough, that we could have a new one each week. Now, these lists of 5-10 do not have to simply include the 'greats' of each respective system... they can include some Classics along with some that were unheard of or any combo thereof. Also, for the sake of adding some color to these threads, I figured whoever starts the thread can ONLY pick games that he owns in his own Collection so that should keep things interesting.
I'll start this one off with Genesis VS. SNES:
1. Sonic the Hedgehog
2. Streets of Rage
3. Bio Hazard Battle
4. Kid Chameleon
5. Road Rash
1. Super Mario World
2. Final Fight
3. Earth Defense Force
4. Donkey Kong Country
As you can see, both systems have two quality Platformers, a Fighter, a Shooter, and a Racing game picked out for them. With these choices presented: which do you pick? Wow, I'm having hell picking one of these.
I would definitely pick Streets of Rage because that series just 'does' it for me... and this is SO hard to decide because the Final Fight series 'does' it for me as well. Earth Defense Force is a badass shooter so I'd have to go with that and I'm going to choose Kid Chameleon over Donkey KC because the Chameleon game has so much promise imo. F-Zero over Road Rash... easily because F-Zero is one of my favorite Console Racers.
Maaaan, this is tough.... I loooove Super Mario World... but I think I'm going to have to go with Sonic on this one.
I choose the Genesis Lot.
