    Since I can't find an essentials list for such an epic system, I've decided to start one. (Unless there is already one, in which case moderators feel free to close this topic)

    If there is a game already on the list that you think should not be there let me know and it'll have a point removed (so if there are more negative than positive votes then the game will be removed entirely off the list).

    You may also recommend some more games in a future post but: (1) you must not repeat any game you have already mentioned and (2) you must make a new post, do NOT edit your previous post as it may not be seen.

    Three categories: 10+ Essentials List, 5+ Recommended List, 3+Noteworthy and Others

    Crystalis and The Guardian Legend are really great games even today, I highly recommend them to anyone that hasn't played them yet.

    I think you mean kirby's adventure so that's the one I'm going to add to the list. (If I'm not mistaken, Kirby Nightmare in Dreamland is a GBA remake of the NES game)

    [​IMG] I just copied the layout from the PSP essentials list.

    Edit: Actually, I think I'll copy off of the 360 essentials list, it's simpler and seems more organized. (though it's more of a hassle to update if I keep the list in alphabetical order)

    Edit 2: Well, I changed the first post to the 360 list's layout. It's now organized by (1) # of votes and (2) alphabetical order.
