We seem to have every other console and when the DS/GBA can actually emulate most of these to some degree it made no sense to miss them out. If a split is necessary then so be it but for now I will start them in one. Much like the current consoles despite versions appearing on all of them they could be drastically different so please state what you want.

I will sort it out into usual format when the time comes but for now
Amiga
Cannon Fodder
Cannon Fodder 2
Populous
Elite (any version)
Simulcra (took me ages (read over a year) to remember this and it finally came this evening, hence this thread).
Chaos Engine
Lemmings (any version, I highly suggest the DS port instead: http://www.mrdictionary.net/lemmings/ )
Troddlers (SNES got a good version)
Speedball, personally I could not stand it but I can see why people like it.
Sensible soccer: the first, last and only football game that has not triggered my football induced narcolepsy.
Dune II: one of the best RTS games ever in my opinion, I suggest the PC version if you can find it and given it features in the dosbox logo.....)
Marble madness: the DS has an excellent "clone" in Marble http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=3149
SYNDICATE: I am kicking myself for having to include this in an edit.

Note many Amiga era titles got ported to the 16 bit consoles and later the GBA/DS as official titles and especially homebrew.

c64.
toobin'
Street Surfer
Ghostbusters.
Rambo (you people think metal slug is hard, you have seen nothing)

Not sure which console but rampart (granted the snes version was my favourite). I will be here all night if I continue and I have cheesy films to watch so I am off.

I really enjoyed Frontier but the space travel/battle parts just weren't as fluid or as fun as the original Elite. The new stuff that was added to the space stations and the ability to land on the planets were great though.
