Good list. I've been thinking about Skies of Arcadia lately. I might blog about it.

I'd like to read about that. I never beaten the game. I got stuck somewhere in it, probably with one of those ship to ship battles.

Yeah, I had the same problem. Really liked the game though.

Most of the consoles I've bought weren't for one game, but for the promise of more chances to review games for it in the future.  Either that or I got the system as a present.  So I'll just list my favorite game for each console I've owned.

Game Boy Color: Link's Awakening DX and Wario Land 2

NEO GEO Pocket Color: SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters Clash

PSOne: Namco Museum vol. 1 to 5

PS2: Ratchet and Clank series

GameCube: Animal Crossing (but Smash Melee, Metroid Prime, and Kirby Air Ride are so good)

Dreamcast: Marvel vs. Capcom 2

I remember getting my nes and the first moment the Zelda title screen came on. I knew I was in store for something special. Have some great memories of that game.

My best friend got a NES and Super Mario Bros. about a year before I did.  Mario was neat, but it wasn't enough to get me to buy a NES, and I was perfectly happy playing Pengo on my Atari 5200.  But the next year he got Zelda and that's when I wanted a NES.  You know what impressed me the most about Zelda back then?  That you could actually save your game!

This is such a cool list, also reading Patapon got their little chant in my head Pata-Pata-Patapon. I think Patapon 3 might have been my first digital game I bought on the PSP.

I still need to play 2 and 3 but I remember getting them on a sale at Walmart. I knew I had to have them because I love everything about the series. I'm not particularly good at it yet though.
