    I wish more people knew about Pokemon Prism and The Legend of Zelda Goddess of Wisdom. Because those definitely should have made the list.

    Super Metroid Redesign does NOT belong on this list. It destroys the very core of what makes Metroid Metroid. Hyper Metroid or Z-Factor are far better choices for this list.

    Not a lot of research was done here, if you are going to go with a Sonic Rom Hack, Sonic Classic Heroes is prob one of the more well done rom hacks, and if you had to go with the Sally in Sonic 1, then use the updated footage.

    I love racing games that feature upgrades to buy but there's just a few options out there, so are there racing game mods out there? Something like Top Gear 2 or Road Rash but with TONS more upgrades would be a really cool idea, and also bring some variety with open road tracks, and not only closed circuits
