  1. For me it was the summer Super Mario Bros. 3 came out. First of all, the movie "The Wizard" really hyped that game up because the game hadn't been released yet and it was the ultimate showdown in the movie. Then I got the game in the summer and I ran down to my friend's house and we popped it into the machine and started jumping and Racooning all over the place. He had a homemade Slip 'n' Slide set up in his backyard and as we took turns playing, we'd slide down the plastic sheet, run back up the hill and into the living room to play our level. By the end of the afternoon, their normally light blue carpet was brown with mud and bits of grass was all over the place.

    One of the first games I had waited for the release date was Secret of Evermore. I remember I gave my mom some money to go and buy it while I was at school that day and when I got home I blew off my homework to play the game instead.

    Centipede on the Atari 2600 was the first time my legs went numb from sitting and playing a game for too long. Actually, it was fortunately one of the last times too.

    When my friend bought Metal Gear Solid, I used to jimmy the window to his apartment open and climb in so I could play it while he wasn't around.

    Honestly, as I'm sure with most of you, I have way too many intense nostalgic moments associated with video games to list here. That was just a few.

  2. I wasn't aware of the Donkey Kong Country 2 album that's in the works. That's pretty cool. I enjoyed the first one a lot. As far as Dr. Mario, I have searched far and wide for mixes olremix, vgmix, and on this site as well as other places... I'm just surprised because I guess I always thought the Dr. Mario tunes were more popular, but I suppose that's just a matter of perspective. Anyway, I have a few, I was just suggesting that if anyone wants to do anything different with them.

    Still, King Arthur's World has great source material if you ask me and I think that people could do some very creative things to either enhance or change the songs.

  3. It's been awhile since I've made a request... I played through part of Donkey Kong Country 2 recently, and I thought that someone could really take Funky Kong's theme from that game and enhance it to sound really cool.

    Another game that I think has lots of potential and has yet to ever be covered is King Arthur's World. There are several songs that would reveal themselves to various genre. I think the main track from the "Real World" is called "Forward March" and I like that one. Then there is one that has a funky groove and another one that has a more hip hop type of beat to it. If you haven't heard the music before, you should definitely check it out (the game has its own in game sound test).

    To keep the list short, I'll just make it three games. I really like the music in Dr. Mario and I am kind of surprised at how little this game gets covered. I think the more upbeat sounding mixes that I have found sound really nice. So, it would be cool if anyone wanted to cover some more from the two main songs in that game (Fever and Chill).

    Okay, just one more: Bubsy! I like the first level music from that game, the music when you get a black shirt is very jazzy, and some of the various other music including the title music. The only mixes I've ever found are based off of a 20 second loop from the game. I might be the only one who likes this music... But if you wanted to find some lesser covered games to try to remix, go for King Arthur's World and Bubsy.
