Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland (Nintendo DS) - I never played it, but I wonder if the game's worth the high price it's going for now (and I also wonder how much this game still has to do with Zelda...)

Let me second this.. Still my all-time favorite downloadable game. I was blown away by this game when I played it on the 360 in 2009. It's a 2D shooter and Metroidvania game crossed together, like a mix of Metroid, Contra, and Uncharted. I think it would have been an easy A-range score for the VGC back in 2009, and I assume it's held up well. I know the Critic is against downloadable titles, but this is worth an exception if there ever was one. Or search ebay for the physical release, but it's much more expensive.

Since he enjoyed the Arkham games, I'm curious what his opinion on Shadow of Mordor and Shadow of War would be. Usually he would leave those kinds of games to me and the other RPG reviewers, but I think since this is more action than RPG he would probably enjoy it just fine.

And maybe that awful Super Pro Decathlon game too [...] Even though Beamrider has been reviewed for other systems my particular favorite version is the Intellivision's (which is also missing.)

I second these. I always like seeing new coverage of those interesting late Intellivision titles. And Firehawk is a nice unlicensed game that's sort of like Raid on Bungeling Bay on steroids.

As for my own wishlist, my biggest interest is seeing the existing libraries fully reviewed:


The completist in me loves the idea of having an overview of a console's entire US library. :) Beyond that, lemme think:

Odyssey²: Loony Balloon (oddball import that's frustrating but addictive)

NES: Bad Dudes (surprising this hasn't been reviewed!), Captain Comic (unlicensed, DOS port, sort of Metroid-ish)

Philips CD-i: Kingdom: The Far Reaches (1980s laserdisc adventure game reskinned for the 1990s; also on 3DO), Kingdom II: Shadoan (its sequel), Steel Machine (brutal little shooter that's oh-so-nineties)

PlayStation: Steel Harbinger (in progress already?)

Pandora's Tower for Wii. It's one of the last releases for the system in NA (certainly the last AAA release here). I really like the game, and I think the Critic may believe it's an RPG like the other 2 "Operation Rainfall" games. It's actually a God of War style action game.

Wii versions of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex Edition, Call of Duty Black Ops, and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3. Given the main systems these titles were developed for, I don't think the developers get enough credit for making these fit on the Wii. These are very solid versions of these three games. They're all even still online.

I suppose The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (I'd recommend the DX colorized rerelease) is a major omission.

I'm not sure I'd call it a wish, but I'm sure readers are disappointed at times when they open the Game Boy section and don't see a review for one of the more popular Zelda entries. Probably one of the most glaring omissions here, since so many highlights from every major console and handheld have seen coverage at this site.

I suppose I'd nominate Top Gear for the Super Nintendo. Not only do I love the game myself, but I believe based off reviews for games like Outrun that the Critic would enjoy this sprite scaling arcade style console racer. I personally consider it the pinnacle of sprite scaling pseudo 3D racers across all platforms, even above something like arcade Outrun.

Might I suggest Adventure Island for the Game Boy? It's not a direct port of the NES version; it blends elements from AI 1&2.
