    Default The Best Game/Worst Game by System

    Let's kick off a great big thread of your favorite and least favorite games for each, every, or any system you've had some experience with. You should have played a significant number of games on the console to make these calls!

    I'll start it off with a few of my favorite systems and add more later.

    Intellivision - Best: AD&D Cloudy Mountain. Worst: Star Wars Empire Strikes Back
    Genesis - Best: Streets of Rage 2. Worst: Earth Defense.
    3DO - Best: Road Rash. Worst: Shadow War of Succession.
    PlayStation - Best: Final Fantasy Tactics. Worst: Intellivision Classics

    Great game, but I hate it now because it doesn't work with a (*^$%# optical cable

    Although I would say the worst is AquaAqua. Great concept, but shitty camera angle makes gameplay impossible.

    Cap'n Yashiro, your choices for best/worst on the SMS are quite odd.... Have you ever tried Global Defense in 2 controller mode?


    Anyway,

    Sega Master System
    Best: ....Um, that's a toughie! So many awesome games....I'll go with the ever popular Wonder Boy III to play it safe
    Worst: 20 em 1 sucks pretty bad, but I'll cut it a little slack for being made by TecToy, and choose ALF for being so slapped together that when Alf turns, he disappears for a few frames.

    Other Systems: I don't really care.

    no one has mentioned legend of success joe, on the neo geo. has to be the worst neo geo game to ever come along...ever. it was supposed to be boxing and an adventure game in one, but it came out as a kind of rock em sock em robots go to wal-mart type of thing, far from what it was supposed to be.
