Similar as this is to a favorites thread in concept, I was hoping for something better to come from it. We all have our favorite games, but that doesn't mean they belong on this list.

I was hoping to compile a list of games that includes the finest each console has to offer. This isn't a list for all those games that we "knew had their problems, but they're fun anyway, damnit." Similarly, I don't have to personally enjoy a game to know it's top notch.

If this whole thread does degrade into a common favorites thread, please lock it up.

Updating the main post now.

I'm gonna go with Arek and Taucer here. When it really comes down to it, "nominations" is basically another word for "picking favorites." It'd be like having "Must-Have ReMixes: the OCR List." Hey, it's not a favorites thread because now you need *two* people to say they liked it!

First of all, the fact that it's a list means stuff is being intentionally left out. Secondly, there are two possible outcomes for such a list: it will be either a) too small and narrow to accurately cover the full spectrum of genres and tastes or B) too large and broad to be of any actual practical use in the first place.

I will say that all the recommendation threads are kind of annoying though, if not slightly out of hand. To be fair, trying new games isn't as easy and inexpensive as downloading a torrent and going through a couple thousand tracks (which is still actually pretty time-consuming). So maybe recommendation threads have a place...somewhere. But I don't think OCR should be that place. We're in the information age, people, for crying out loud. Have some initiative and try using GameRankings, GameFAQs, Google, or other 'G' website of your choice. If you really insist on getting opinions from OCR and OCR alone (I never understood this) then consider PMs or, pretzel forbid, #ocremix.

Agreed.

I picture OCR as a bleeding pretzel at this point.

It's dying... can it be saved?

Dhsu has made many good points. There are dozens of other sites and communities that could provide this sort of information.

As a community revolving around common interests, I thought a list created by this group would include games that would be more likely to appeal to OCR people. Of course, topics like these can easily reduce any forum into a cesspit of stupidity and irritation. If this thread starts to steer OCR in that direction, please lock and burn it before it causes any problems.

If this has turned out to be a common favorites thread, I apologize profusely.

I'd say, form experience:

Playstation 2/XBox (though X-Box Version has better Graphics):

Prince of Persia Trilogy (Part 1 and Part 3 especially)

Beyond Good and Evil

Both are definitely must-haves.

Playstation 2:

BeatMania IIDX

GameCube:

Mario Party 5

Paper Mario RPG - The Sealed Door

The Legend of Zelda - Twilight Princess

Xbox:

Halo 2

Panzer Dragoon Orta

I'd also like to nominate the following games, but it's more of a personal opinion here:

Burnout 3: Takedown (PS2/XBox)

Burnout 4: Revenge (PS2)

Valkyrie Profile Silmeria (PS2)

Pacman VS. (Gamecube Japanese)

The Legend of Zelda - 4 Swords (Gamecube Japanese)

Wario Warez Inc (Gamecube)

Mario Power Tennis (Gamecube, the only "fair" Mario Sports game IMO)

Devil May Cry (PS2)

Zone of the Enders: Anubis (aka "Second Runner", PS2)

Xenosaga (PS2)

ICO/Shadow of the Colossus (PS2)

Shin Contra (aka "Contra: Shattered Soldier", PS2)

I can't really count remakes and gameports like "Last Blade", "Metal Slug" or "Sonic Megacollection" in here, as they're basically other platforms.

Too bad we're allowed to have opinions, huh?

It does suck that everyone with an opinion feels its their god given duty to share it with everyone else especially when IT DOES NOT MATTER.

Limited selection, simply because I don't want to name games I like, but games I want to nominate.

DC: Bangai-O

PS2: Katamari Damaci

GameCube: Ikaruga

How can this thread bother you that much? I understand these topics can get annoying pretty quickly, but is it really that hard to just not open it up? Not trying to be a troll, but seriously.

(PS - Nice nominations with Bangai-O and Shenmue II)

Bahahaha! It's good to be back.

Anyway, everything that I'd recommend is pretty much already done, so I won't spin the record around.

I'd add Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic to the XBOX list, but that's it.

Puzzle Quest was for PSP I thought?

I can't say I agree with having FFXII in a list like that - it's incredibly not fun starting at the 10 hour point for anyone not using some sort of guide. Also there were some aspects in the game design that just reek of poor, such as not being able to get a weapon simply for opening a chest out in the open.

Also, I disagree with Metroid Prime 2 being in such a list - a good portion of time is spent in a pretty bland world, and as with MP 1, as you get closer to the final battle the game starts to slow down drastically. Both games are questionable as fine games.

And while I haven't played it much, I've heard that Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops is an amazing game and well worth a play (PSP).

Edit: Coop, you missed the Megaman X Collection! How could you?!

Edit: Coop, you missed the Megaman X Collection! How could you?!

I personally think Coop missed out quite a few good games, but I'm not complaining. I'm keeping that list for future reference.

Dreamcast games that no one has posted yet:

Powerstone 2

Elemental Gimmick Gear

Capcom Vs SNK 2001 - Mark Of The Millenium

Shenmue 2

Virtual On - Oratorio Tangram

EDIT - ChuChu Rocket!

EDIT 2 - Jet Set Radio

EDIT 3 - Jojo's Bizarre Adventure

EDIT 4 - Rival Schools: Project Justice

There are so much more though... I'll post more if I can think of any... If the topic isn't locked that is.

Oh, and I think The Coop might like Radiant Slivergun for the saturn.

EDIT - Oh wait no-one mentioned Melty Blood yet?

Putting import games on a "must-have" list is kinda iffy, especially considering the means by which they are usually "obtained"...

Through my local Import Dealer! I don't know what you're talking about....

(I actually used an Import Dealer to get a few rare Saturn titles back in the late 90's....)

Well if you're honest, you buy them from one of the many places import games are readily available either in store, or online. I'm not going to refrain from recommending something, just because they might download it, or get a pirated copy from somewhere. After all, nearly every game I listed can be gotten that way these days. It'd be a pretty short list if I avoided all such titles, ya know? :wink:

the-almighty-tallest- Shit! I knew something felt like it was missing from the Saturn list. I also forgot Metal Black, Dungeons and Dragon's Collection and Layer Section II. Missed Metal Slug Anthology for the PS2 as well. I fixed that though.

Bahamut- I left that off, because I've heard (and read) the emulation isn't as good as the MegaMan Anniversary Collection. Plus, I don't recommend what I haven't played myself. Good reviews is one thing, but I prefer first hand experience :smile:

How so? All you need is a Game Genie to play import Genesis (aka MegaDrive) titles, and the cartridges needed to play import Saturn games are plentiful, and cost less than many games (with the best ones being the 4-in-1 carts, which you can still buy new). Games like Vampire Savior and Thunder Force IV are quite cheap these days, and while the likes of Radiant Silvergun and Gley Lancer are up there in price thanks to eBay sellers and their "OMG RARE L@@K" bullshit, so are the American releases for things like Marvel vs Capcom 2, Fatal Fury: Mark of the Wolves, and basically anything released by Atlus. But just because it's expensive now, doesn't mean it will be when they spot a copy. And if they look up info on a game and like the way it sounds, then when they spot that cheaper copy, they can act on it quicker.

Besides... if I'm going to make a list, I may as well make one that covers everything I really liked on a system over the years, instead of just touching on a few. The more they have to look into, the better :smile:
