    It's been some long-time goal of mine to buy the NP 200th issue. When's that issue coming out?

    And yes, that list is...interesting.
    And don't bring up that stupid girlie Aladdin rip off! Shantea?

    I've thought it was pretty good so far. I mean, they did run a disclaimer saying it was for Nintendo systems only.

    Any list that has River City Ransom, both Breath of Fire 1 and 2, Lufia 2, Illusion of Gaia, and Baten Kaitos is damned good in my book.

    Some of the choices are bit questionable though...The SNES version of Final Fight sucks royally (compared to the arcade version and especially the Game Boy Advance remake!) , and I can barely comprehend why Gyromite and Simpsons Road Rage are on there.

    Oh well. Different strokes, I suppose.

    I love that game! Hell, I guess it gets a little recognition at least

    153: Pilotwings, SNES

    Another under rated game IMO.

    129: Ghost 'n Goblins, NES

    I love how half of these won't make, or place very differently in the top 300 list whenever that comes around.

    My bad. Guess I was tired .

    Yea, I'll update it. I get it monthly (I've been getting it, because the free Zelda Collectors Disc got me sucked in), and I should get the next issue soon.

    So far it looks like they picked 80 random games wrote the names on pieces of paper and picked them out of a fucking hat.

    Nintendo put the SNES port of Mortal Kombat on a list of top Nintendo games (and only a few positions behind MK2, no less)?

    Personally, I think a "top 200" list is way too big for anything, but I'll refrain from commenting until I see the final list. However, if Zelda: A Link to the Past doesn't make the top 5 or 10, I'm not buying the Revolution.

    Hahaha, what? I guess I don't follow the logic...

    I kind of agree with what's been said about the list so far. It doesn't suck, but it's extremely shaky. Why would you expect otherwise? Have you never read NP's reviews?

    ALTTP on SNES is one of my Least favorite Zeldas and I LOVE Zelda and Metroid.

    Anyway this list is a joke but then again Nintendo Power has been shit since the N64 days.

    I actually have the first few issues of the Nintendo fan club magazine that was before Nintendo power and the first 2-3 years of Nintendo power I used to wait everymonth for my issue to come in the mail when I was a kid but now Ive picked up maybe one Nintendo power every couple years just to see if theres been any improvement alas its all in vein.

    I mean gyromite? cmon

    I agree with the statement that it looks as though they just drew names from a hat its that bad

    Well, most Zelda fans rate that and OOT as the best Zelda games, but you certainly are entilted to your opinion. Personally, I have been playing since '79, and rate ALTTP as my third favorite game ever, right behind Phantasy Star (SMS) and Ys: Book I & II (Turbo Grafx CD-ROM). But, everyone has different opinions. Just like the overwhelming majority of hard-core Star Wars fans prefer Empire Strikes Back (followed by A New Hope), but a small vocal minority rank Return of the Jedi as their favorites. Well, let me stop rambling on and get some sleep.

    It's always been a joke of a magazine, but when it came out there wasn't anything better for console games

    In replay to the OP, Tony Hawk 2 on GBA is pretty damn good. Imagine a modern day portable 720, and you have Tony Hawk 2 GBA. They did a pretty good job of porting over the arenas from the console versions, too.

    Instead of commenting on the list itself, did they say anywhere how this list was compiled? Online votes? Had to vote for your top 5 favorites? I don't see any chronic stinkaroos on there. I don't like the Tony Hawk series, but I am an anomoly like that.

    Hex.

    Bah!! Nintendo power always seemed biased as far as lists go for me.
    If they made a movie out of your top five worst sins, what would it be rated?
