    I meant "The Rescue of Dino & Hoppy", never knew they made a second one, seems like the same gameplay tho. I will give the Dinosaur Peak on a go on the Wii emulator. [​IMG]

    +1 for EarthBound (which should be renamed as "EarthBound Zero").
    I'd also like to vote for Duck Tales, Megaman 1, 2, and 3, and Gradius 1 and 2.

    List updated.

    I won't rename it to "EarthBound Zero", because every name is spelled according to GoodNES v3.14. Besides the game's name is indeed just "EarthBound". It's just that it was never officially released and therefore is sometimes referenced to as "EarthBound Zero". However, the fact that it's on the NES and the Japanese name is written next to it, should be enough to avoid confusion with "EarthBound/Mother 2" on the SNES.
