That's messed. Interesting list to read through though. Some of those games I absolutely love. Others not so much.

Sweet, Dragon Quest 8 is on this list!!! I am reliving that game in all its glory on a emulator for my laptop, where I can save at anytime at will. That was the one and only game where I bought the system for one game and one game only (PS2). Now I just wish Square would gets its act together and release all those Dragon Quest goodies here in America! I would like to see a list of all time video games now, I bet the original NES would dominate! I really could care less about any system released after the XBOX, I now just play my old favorites and ignore new releases. Newer games either lost their magic or I just grew up and lost interest.
