    You knew those were given, except for Ristar. Never heard of it.

    Toe Jam & Earl was a refreshing change from all the side scrollers back in the day.

    Cool...even if sega systems are gone for good, at least their cooler games still live on.

    Genesis will forever live on in emulation. I am more worried about Saturn and Dreamcast. But some of their more popular games have branched into different systems like Phantasy Star and Jet Grind.

    Ristar was developed by Sonic Team. I'd never heard of it before Sonic Mega Collection came out, as the game was an extra on that.

    Ecco the Dolphin... now that's a game I'm excited about playing again. That was one of my first 2 Genesis games. Good times.

    Blah, what is needed is a super game consol where you can play burnt games on it regardless of what system, that would be sweet..ie playing mame games on tv.

    If this is all true, the Virtual Wii is off to a better start than any of the non-virtual consoles.

    Emulation on a PC is what you are looking for. Doing it legally is the hangup, but it is doable.

    However newer systems aren't quite up to speed yet. Saturn may never be do to its architecture.

    Following on from the N64 games mentioned by Devz, my kingdom for Blast Corps.

    Gawd knows what the ownership of the Ultimate/Rare catalogue is like thougth, i'd be interested to know where the rights for thier stuff have ended up.

    Nice list, but aren't they all available on one compilation or another?

    This solidifies it for me. Wii will be the first console I've purchased since the N64. This line up is incredible for launch. Now what they need to do is get get Konami on board. I need to play me some Bionic Commando and Strider!

    If a gamer has not tested his skills in the Corps, he has no skills to speak of.
