No Monkey Island...am I missing it? Boo hiss.

Otherwise, a pretty non-offensive list. Am curious though: What the fuck makes Ms. Pac-Man better than regular Pac-Man?

"Tell me Noah, I've always wanted to know. What is the difference between Pac Man and Ms. Pac Man, really?"

haha man, waynes worlds are my fave comedy films of all time.

"come bust a move where the games are played, its hip, its hop its noahs arcade..... HMPH!"

yhea i thought it wasnt too bad a list.. not sure about the first zelda being number one, when so many people seem to think ocarina is the best of the series? did make me wonder if they felt older generations would come first.. but i'm not sure.

Interesting stuff. Modern Warfare 2 is on there? It is low ranked and fresh in peoples minds I guess- the last chase scene is pretty memorable. I haven't counted how many I've played but recognised more than I thought I would^^.

If anything it reminded me I never played FF Tactics and that has made me a bit sad. TO EBAY!

lol theres a lot of games i recognise, i just wanted to count the games i'd actually had some sort of go on.. and was surprised how many i had played!

Ive played 107 of these games. Most of the NES, SNES, N64 i would never have played. I might have missed it but was Shenmue 1 or 2 on there??? If not? then WTF!!
