Nose-Deep in Nostalgia; Enjoying Rare Replay

Hey, so Rare or whatever it is these days recently put out a bundle of their past games (well, the ones that lack any signature Nintendo elements).
Rare Replay is a compilation of 30 games by Rare and its predecessor Ultimate Play the Game from prior platforms that range from the ZX Spectrum to the Xbox 360. Games in the collection from before 1996 have an option to add the appearance of scanlines by clicking the right analog stick, an option to "rewind" progress in the game, and the ability to add modifiers such as infinite lives.[4][5] The compilation includes the Xbox 360 ports of Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie and Perfect Dark, not their original Nintendo 64 versions.[4] Xbox 360 games require a separate install from the game itself and cannot be played without a one-time online activation;[6] those that originally included online multiplayer, such as Perfect Dark Zero and Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, retain these features in the compilation release, and include most of their downloadable content. Several Rare titles are not included in the compilation due to licensing issues, such as Donkey Kong Country and GoldenEye 007.

The 30 games included are:
