    Ninja Gaiden gets name-dropped, but no love for the far-superior Vice: Project Doom?

    Also, The Guardian Legend (NES) is a mix of Gradius, Legend of Zelda, and Metroid. Highly recommended.

    I didn't like Vice as much as NG, because I didn't play it as a kid. They're both obviously dated, so nostalgia has a value.

    I didn't like the driving at ALL in Vice, and the side-scrolling felt like a weird Batman/Contra hybrid to me, where you get the mediocre weapons of Batman with the wild bosses from Contra.

    It's a good game, but came out too late to get the acclaim.

    On awesome frustration tops, Friday the 13th for NES has always kicked me in the ass. I was never able to actually beat it on that console. I still long to destroy that game on actual NES.

    Lots of good games on this list, no need to repeat, but I'll toss one out I haven't seen yet:

    Rimworld.

    A base-builder, it's similar to Dwarf Fortress (without the difficulty of trying to figure out which Unicode symbol means "wheelbarrow") and allows you a pretty high degree of freedom in crafting whatever life you'd like for your colonists.

    I've had one game where I worked as the paragon of the people, healing any tribespeople who attacked me and sending them back to their people to speak my praises. I would recuperate them in my Tier1 medical facility, complete with bionic legs and eyes and whatever else they lost in the fight between their spears and my plasma rifles.

    On the other hand .... there was definitely one game where we huddled in the frozen tundra, dug our way into a mountain, and started manufacturing cocaine grown in hydroponics vats to support our quest for world domination. And in that one, we preferred to harvest the organs of people who attacked us, and their tribes never saw them again.

    Certainly morally ambiguous, very open-ended, and a ton of fun.

    Rimworld seems interesting, Zeph. Another of my irritation games to pile on the list is Ghost & Goblins. It also deserves my awesome standard for irritating the hell out of me.

    If you have a PS1 and can find it or if you have a PS3 and get it off the PSN, my all time favorite game is Suikoden II. It was basically perfection so...

    I was addicted to ToeJam & Earl for Sega Genesis back in the day.
