I'm not sure how far you guys are going back but Doom revolutionized gaming. That to me was the single most important game in history.

EDIT: Actually Castle Wolfenstein was the first of its kind with Doom being the more popular game.

Parents never let you play that one, huh? Poor sheltered kid. :-b

Hung, I was just bustin' yer balls and offering you some friendly criticism... galaga and centipede but no Mario and Zelda? Something's rotten in Kansas :-?

Definitely give you big thumbs up for taking the time to prepare the game for us though. ;-D

Man - I had completely forgotten about Kid Icarus. That was a good game.

As for Sonic being "more console defining", I suppose I made that statement incorrectly. I meant to say something along the lines of; As for console defining games, Sonic was the best game, not the most-defining.

Mario kills every Sonic game, period. Except for the American Super Mario Bros 2, which was pretty bad.

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
