    Gargoyles!! I'm a huge fan of the Disney animated show, Gargoyles..I guess if you're not really a fan, then you probably won't appreciate it as much.

    I agree with you on the phantasy stars. I would always play them in class on my gba. I was a senior in high school and they called me "game boy".

    Unlisted games:

    The "Strike" series:
    Desert Strike: Return to the Gulf
    Jungle Strike
    Urban Strike

    Mega Turrican / Turrican 3 (better than Turrican IMO)
    Taz-Mania (for a licensed game, it was surprisingly good, probably because it was just like Sonic and made by Sega)
    Yu Yu Hakusho Makyoutoissen (awesome fighting game by Treasure in line with Bleach DS - also made by Treasure)

    All the others I like are listed.

    Kid Chameleon
    Landstalker
    Toe Jam and Earl
    Sonic Series

    Best games ever.



    and Altered Beast just because of the voice effects
    "RISE FROM YOUR GRAVE"
    "POWER UP"
    and of course, the death scream
    "AHHHH"

    Desert & Jungle Strike (never liked Urban)
    Biohazard Battle
    Theme Park (Not the best version but its the best game of its kinds on MD/Gen)
    Herzog Zwei just has to be included, its just amazing.

    32X:
    Virtua Fighter
    Virtua Racing
    Star Wars Arcade
    Kolibri
    Space Harrier
    After Burner COmplete

    How about Sega CD? If so then:
    Snatcher (I pray that this comes to DS)
    Sonic CD
    Terminator
    Robo Aleste
    Final Fight CD
    Eternal Champions: Challenge From The Dark Side

    I'd like to add that Altered Beast is a horrible horrible game, good sound but thats it! Its mindless, repetetive and a waste of time. Most overrated game in my opinion, no idea why how anyone could like it but then life will be dull if everyone agreed with me.

    Rolling Thunder 2 - one of my favourite games ever. Great style from the outset with the super cool intro. Excellent run and gun gameplay. And tough as nails (for me anyway).
