Unsurprisingly the Mario Land, Wario Land, Yakuza games and Detroit are already on the list.

Surprisingly the HotD games were not, but they are now!

Knights of the Old Republic I+II
Metal Wolf Chaos once the re-release is out

All already on the list.

Just a reminder that we already have several decades worth of games on the list, so don't bank on added suggestions happening imminently!

In case it’s not already on the list, I’m going to throw in Minit. Based on my experience with it, I’m reckoning on it being viewed as a cult classic by the time you’d get to it!

Exactly the kind of game I'd get around to playing if I knew it was coming up on a podcast. Good shout!

After listening to the luigis mansion podcast I was reminded of Gregory horror show which is a fantastic curio and something I would love to go back to. I’ve only just gotten over my nightmares involving the evil pink ?crocodile? nurse and her giant syringe.

I also came across my anime dvd collection of the same series which must be an omen.

GHS is on the list. Hard to find now though and PS2 only. I sold my copy years ago but I think a friend might still have it.

If you're already shortlisting for next year, are you looking at doing another series again?

Is it going to become a staple to do all the games in one series every year?

Can I nominate the Shin Megami Tensei series?

We’ll be continuing the Final Fantasy series (VIII to XV). Beyond that nothing is decided at this point!

The deeper look into game series’ over the last couple of years has been extremely enjoyable, even if it’s ones I’m not that personally fond of, it’s great listening along and learning about franchises.

Long may it continue.

Yes I’ve really liked it too and would love to see another series get the same comprehensive treatment. Metroid for example would be nice. I don’t think anyone has mentioned this yet ;)

A few suggestions:

Klonoa: Door to phantomile. And the sequel if you want I guess, but the first one is where the magic is at.

Spyro The Dragon and its first two sequels - with both Crash and Spyro getting revivals the time seems ripe.

Rayman and its sequel

Pony Island

Medievil 1-2

Some of the Classic Castlevanias - Rondo of Blood, the original, Draculas Curse, Super Castlevania. Maybe they can be mushed together in 8 bit and 16 bit era focused shows.

Not sure if I've ever suggested it before, but I was listening to a Peter Molyneux interview the other day, and I think The Movies would make a really interesting episode. I thought it was an absolutely fantastic game, that nobody ever really mentions any more, but it was so cool at the time, I spent ages with it!

(Also, sure they'll be on the list but Theme Park and Hospital....?)

Has Overwatch been mentioned already?

I know that multiplayer-only FPSs aren't exactly your usual niche, but since you already did Titanfall, I suppose this one might be worth looking into as well. Although it should probably be covered before the game dies out completely...

PS: I'll also throw in Infinifactory for good measure.

I was wondering, since you're covering the Ghosts 'n Goblins, Ghouls 'n Ghosts series, if you had plans to tackle Maximo: Ghosts to Glory? I'd probably have to admit it's not a big headliner but it was real gem back on the PS2.

Both of the Maximo games are on the list, as are the Tombi/Tomba games (also spiritual successors in some ways, from the same creator).

I think I may have already nominated the Myth series (The Fallen Lords and Soulblighter more than the third game) of games via Twitter but if I didn't and only thought I did then I'll throw them in here instead. Not sure how enthused the team would be to play a fairly ancient RTS but I know I loved it back in the day. They were very unforgiving games in their first iteration but I think the developers softened the difficulty in subsequent patches and releases.

Found the story and journal component rather engaging.

I had Die Hard Trilogy pop into my head. You don't really get that kind of genre mash-up these days outside of games where variety is the MO, like Warioware or Rhythm Heaven.
