I know the Shin Megami Tensei games are on the list, and you've got JRPGs on the list this year but I can't help being a bit bummed that you aren't covering SMT Nocturne for the remake this year.

Oh, actually, thought of another recommendation, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, new game from Vanillaware that released in English a few months back, it ended up being my favorite game of 2020. It really ended up surprising me.

Have the Colony Wars games been covered yet? If not, get them on the list. They pioneered some great things in the early PS1 days

Has anyone suggested the Rocket Knight/Sparkster series yet? The 16 bit era was full of generic to rubbish me too Sonic ripoff platforming mascots but these games really stood out as been some of the true highlights of the genre for that era. Really fun titles with cute character designs and a lot of that old school Konami action. These are certainly memorable enough to have an episode dedicated to them in my opinion.

I was surprised to find that these weren't on the list. The trilogy has now been added.

These are already on the list (possibly since 2011).

2011? Oh they have been on the list for a while. Glad I am not the only one who requested these then!

I have sort of an off-the-wall recommendation... Jurassic Park games. Perhaps limit the scope to just the first movie, but even in that, there's a lot of diversity of games, and I think covering how different studios approached the same subject matter could be super interesting. The SNES one is sort of a weird top-down adventure game, the Genesis ones are action platformers where you can play as the raptor, the Sega CD one is a weird first-person adventure game in the mould of Myst... Could be a really interesting well for developer interviews and trivia.

There are a number of Jurassic Park licensed games on the list, but not a great deal of enthusiasm among the team to actually revisit them at this point...

Ah, didn't realize the team was made up of Carnosaur fans!

I'd cover them. ;D Maybe I'll do a forum chronology, should be easy enough to obtain or emulate them.

There's actually quite good series of videos on YouTube from RKG playing each Jurassic Park game and comparing them to the films.
