    Totally Rad, dude.

    As for mine, I'll throw in the hint that it's an Atari 2600 game.

    I think the game was called either Too Human or Darksiders.

    EDIT: So it seems like #36, #38, and #BR5 have yet to be solved. DOUBLE EDIT: For the sake of convenience I've quoted the unsolved ones here:

    Totally Rad hint. Oh, didn't see goldenband already did it.

    It sounds like you're trying to talk about Too Human, but I don't watch enough Zero P to know for sure. Either way, it's not #36. There are hints of Norse influence here and there in #36, including Yggdrasil. I will also go ahead and say that #36 is actually a fair bit newer than most games on this thread, and is a distant prequel.

    Also, I think #38 is Boxing.

    Sounds like 36 is Xenogears.

    Yep, BR5 is Totally Rad. Three of your spells are supposed to transform you into animals but the form you take is actually humanoid so it comes off more like you did a Henshin into an animal-themed superhero costume (fans of Tokusatsu shows like Kamen Rider or Super Sentai will know what I mean).

    It's also a game I see get dissed a lot even though I thought it was actually kinda awesome.

    Also I share the opinion that #36 is Xenogears. Probably should've thought of it earlier just my mind kept thinking of 8- or 16-Bit era games.

    Unfortunately, Celery and Edmond, #36 is not Xenogears. #36 is an entry in a fairly prominent RPG series, one that started in 16-bit era and is still ongoing.

    Guessing #38 was mostly plain dumb luck; I kept thinking things like Rumble Roses or DoA, stuff like that.

    It looks like there's still some to be guessed but I'll go ahead and give my clues before I forget.

    #40 - If you're traveling to the USA, you can't just visit New York City. You should visit places all over the country. And what's that button up there for? Time to swing into action! What? Game Over? Talk about a buzz kill!

    #41 - Aaaannnnddd, we've drifted out to sea again! I thought you were supposed to be brilliant, but putting me in charge was about the stupidest thing you could have done.

    Is it Tales of Symphonia? I've never played the game, so I have no idea if it fits the original description, but it seems possible based on these clues.

    And Scissor wins a cookie for #36; it is indeed Tales of Symphonia.

    Almost a week without any guesses. Perhaps I should give some hints?

    Probably. Admittedly my memory has been failing me lately but neither of the two descriptions are ringing a bell.

    Ok, for 40 and 41; one is an arcade game and the other is of the computer variety.

    #40 still isn't ringing a bell (admittedly tho I probably need more education in the ways of the arcade)

    #41... EDIT: It's unfair to guess multiple games at once, so I'm gonna say... is it Pirates/Pirates Gold or something in that lineage?

    People are probably more familiar with the console version of #40, but the arcade version is notorious for one of my (just slightly cryptic) clues.

    #41 is one that you would probably have to be pretty familiar with the game to guess, though EVERYONE is familiar with the characters.

    About the only thing I can think of even close for #40 is Rampage.

    Not rampage. You could say that these 2 games each have something different in common with one of the previous games I picked...after a fashion.

    I guess no one is playing this anymore. Instead of leaving them unsolved, I'll add a few extra details to the clues...

    #40 - If you're traveling to the USA, you can't just visit New York City. You should visit places all over the country, such as Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. And what's that button up there for? Time to swing into action! What? Game Over? Talk about a buzz kill!

    #41 - Maybe lighting the match will help. Nope. I hope we don't need that later because it seems to be the only one in all of London. Hey look, a rowboat. Aaaannnnddd, we've drifted out to sea again! I thought you were supposed to be brilliant, but putting me in charge was about the stupidest thing you could have done.

    This has to be Ninja Gaiden (arcade).

    You got it!

    I thought the reference to the button on top the joystick so you can swing into things would be a giveaway, at least to anyone who's played the arcade game. And of course the clue about the infamous buzzsaw continue scene.

    #42 - Downloadable title demonstrates the dangers of overeating, the wisdom of taking everything one step at a time, the difficult plight of the color-blind, and the truth of the proverb "You can't take it with you".
