Let's think... I agree with that list so I'm gonna add more. Sadly I can't think back too far.

Jurassic Park. - PC
Resistance - ps3
Resistance 2 - ps3
MGS4 - ps3
Battlefield Bad Company - only on ps3 though. 360 was great.
Assassin's Creed - 360

Eh, I thought it skewed too far from the series to be called 'super mario' anything. It was a decent game all-in-all, but nintendo power hyped it up to be the greatest mario game of all time, which it wasn't, and frankly I thought it wasn't worth the $50. You know I thought someone was gonna say assassin's creed, I considered it, but I actually didn't think it would be all that great to begin with.

Holy crap. I missed that. I do not agree with that at all.

Yoshi's Island on the DS was the fucking Bomb too.

And Mario Kart follows the original storyline? Horseshit. I played Yoshi's Island for hours on the SNES. And occasionally I still do after I've rigged the cartridge with duct tape and heavy books.

Good point, you know I bought the cart for the GBA when it came out for only $40 and that was a decent buy, it's rare to see such colorful games on handhelds. Oh yea and for my list of games I was disappointed with was any game that was re-released by square enix on gameboy that had no special features whatsoever.

Yoshi's Island was different from all the other previous mario games. Maybe thats why it could have been a disappointment at the time.

Not true. There were some other great titles on the Sega CD.

these games here really got on my nerves, most of all because they had great predecessors:

- splinter cell 4 double agent
- tomb raider 7 legend
- armed assault

There was a neat little Warcraft3 custom map called - Jurassic Park: Survival. Probably one of the best hour of my life was repeatedly spent playing that map, lots of time put into it and sweet features. I enjoyed JP:S more than I did playing The Frozen Throne expansion itself.
