It's been mentioned before, but I wouldn't be upset it Final Fantasy Tactics magically appeared on the list someday.
The entire FFT series is on the list.

Probably already on the list, but... Virtua Racing.
It actually wasn't - but it is now!

I consider this a kind of Googlewhack exercise, albeit one where I feel I'm cheating if I nominate - for example - Roland on the Ropes or Roland in the Caves, from the CPC464 heyday of total dogshit games which will never appear on Cane and Rinse.

I could nominate the Repton series from the BBC Micro/Acorn Electron days, games which I played a lot as a kid and which I would love C&R to cover but, again, it feels like cheating. (From some buried memory, I now actually think I did at some point...) Likewise, I would love an issue on the magnificent and still playable Castle Quest, but it ain't happening because it's not primarily a podcast about my childhood memories! For that reason, obscure 8-bit games are too easy and I feel they clog the list unnecessarily.

The real art is to pull a Virtua Racing out of the bag. It should be there, let's be honest, but he's taken a punt, and lo and behold! It's a notch on the bedpost. Maybe the spread of ports across different formats have made its natural home slightly questionable and so it slips through the cracks, who knows, but he's blagged himself a genuine contender there.

With that in mind, I'm going to nominate the grubby PS1 minor classic, Twisted Metal. I would like an issue on it, it probably should be on the list if you compiled a list of notable PS1 games, but it might just be easily enough overlooked to never take its place on the exalted Excel spreadsheet. What do you say, Leon? :D

Good work - the Twisted Metal games were not on the list!

Did you not always think it was a bit weird that in Roland In The Caves he seemed to have turned in to a frog in a game that was literally nothing like any of the other Roland games? :lol:

Roland On The Ropes though, me and my brother loved that. We never completed it, but spent so long playing it. Also, Werewolves Of London was another CPC game we played to death. Proper open world adventure, looked great and even (although I never realised this at the time) featured the classic Warren Zevon tune on the title screen!

I've probably already suggested it, but is Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne on the list?

I figured I'd ask since a port got announced today.

The entire series is on the list but I've added info relating to the forthcoming remaster.

A bit obscure maybe, but Team Buddies for the PS1! Hours were had with this game with a multitap!
