    I was looking through the films that are to be preserved that the national registry keeps in it vaults and I was wondering if video games should have the same treatment. A place where in hundreds of years time, people will find the vault and be able to play the original Super Mario Bros.

    What do you think and what games would you put in it.

    My list would probably be: Tennis For Two, The original Oddessy games, Pong, Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, Pit Fall, Super Mario Bros, SMB 2, SMB 3, Legend Of Zelda, Final Fantasy, Metroid, Ninja Gaiden, Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd, SMW, Doom, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter 2, Wing Commander, Ultima 4, Super Metroid, Chrono Trigger, Mother, Super Castlevainia 4, Tomb Raider, Spyro, Metal Gear Soild, Command and Conquer, Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Final Fantasy 7, LOZ Ocarina Of Time, Mario 64, Golden Eye, Super Smash Bros Melee, Tetris, Pokemon Red & Blue, Halo, Loz the Wind Waker, God of War, Assassin's Creed 2, Gears of War, Call of Duty 4, Mass Effect 2, Halo 2, Silent Hill 2, Wii Sports, Uncharted, Batman Arkham Asylum, Civilization, World of Warcraft, Splinter Cell, Grand Theft Auto 3 and the Sims.

    There probably more but I can not think of more at the moment.

    Some of those games on your list do not belong.

    To be fair, maybe they should preserve Sonic Adventure as a warning to future generations.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to offend. I made the list only as an example.

    Thanks, now I want to gather up my family and see how many of the lazy ungrateful snots would survive the Oregon Trail.
