Nights into Dreams - PlayStation 3

NiGHTS into Dreams… (yes, the lowercase i and ellipsis are official stylization) was the game that made the Saturn. Bundled with an analog stick for more precise flight control, NiGHTS’ cast of children and harlequins battle the nightmares with flowing, dreamlike gameplay.

For newcomers NiGHTS provides a a weird little game that's fun, colorful and can just be picked up and enjoyed without worrying about investing hours of playtime or unlocks or anything like that. For those with a previous history with the game, its a unique portal back in time, which brings with it the same sense innocence and wonder the game has always drawn on. I played this game relentlessly on the Saturn back in the day, and it may as well be a direct door to my childhood.

Spider Shinobi
NiGHTS into Dreams... is a great HD port of the Saturn game. If you don't know, this one is about passing through stages collecting the most chips in order to destroy some object that will free each checkpoint, and at the end fighting a boss; it's one of those SEGA titles which plays very much like an arcade game under a home structure, like Shinobi (Ps2). This port also includes several bonuses which I don't believe were all included in the original, though it still missed one little thing.

 Crash Bandicoot - PlayStation
"One of the best games available for the original PlayStation. The level designs were colorful and quirky and the characters were lovable and silly. The platforming was supremely satisfying and there was a nice variety in the levels. Naughty Dog hit a home run with Crash Bandicoot." - Parker

 Guitar Hero - PlayStation 2
"The game that started the music video game and plastic musical instrument controller craze. There is quite a good selection of music, with Crossroads being my favorite, and the gameplay is smooth and satisfying. There are different difficulties so anyone can pick it up and play and when you nail a solo on expert difficulty it is quite a good feeling. I've been playing guitar for over 10 years and while I can already play the songs in the game in real life, it is still a damn fun time." - Parker

 Polar Rescue - Vectrex
"The game is pretty fun to play simply because it is on the Vectrex but once that wears off the game really isn't that great. The overlay looks pretty nice though." - Parker

 The Tomb Raider Trilogy - PlayStation 3
"A great trilogy release for the PS3. And I always make Lara leap to her death. It's a wonder I ever completed them when I kept doing that." - scarecrowchan

 Rock Revolution - Nintendo DS
"Considering the fact that I hardly enjoyed Activision's effort at bringing the Guitar Hero franchise to the DS a few years back, there's no way I would be able to tolerate Rock Revolution. It looks like a half-assed attempt at best. At least with Guitar Hero DS you would have the button attachment and even though it wasn't as good as I was hoping it would be, it still functioned well enough. Who in their right mind would want to tap and swipe music notes, it looks boring and repetitive." - mikamifan92
