    Originally started by GBAtemp member bitbyte, the "Essentials" topics are basically a list of the best games for a specific console. Members post names of their favourite games for a system, and the topic starter compiles all the votes into a single post.

    There are so many, and it ends up you get lists of essentials within genres. Say, TBS = Ring of Red, FM4, Gladius.

    I mean, or do you just wanna say "God of War Series" and "GTA Series".

    1) I hadn't seen your topic (it wasn't pinned)
    2) you haven't properly sorted the games so it's impossible to make a difference with such a long list.

    so...why is there not a PS3 and gamecube esential list? n64 might as well be there because you have megadrive and snes.

    The reason is because no one is bothered enough to make one. I do three systems which is enough for me.

    1) used to it!
    2)i tended to group them when they games start getting votes over like 10 so i would categorize them in 20+, 10+, 5+ and etc, but the votes are low and games are too much, so never happend.
    even tried to bump up the thread by adding some new comments, but no one added a game.
    did my part.

    I'd like to see a Gamecube essentials topic, since I have a Wii now and might like to check out some of the Gamecube titles I've missed out on.
