    There were at least 2 Top Guns for the NES, and they looked identical. So that could indeed be "2nd Mission" or whatever, for all we know :P

    3-10: Jade Cacoon
    4-1: Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects
    4-2: Kirby 64
    7-9: Metroid Prime


    To be technical, 2-3 is Final Fantasy II, not 4. Spoony Bard is from the US SNES release of FFII. Is there any way to tell the difference between FFII and FFA: FFIV?

    I was pretty psyched that I immediately recognized Chrono Cross as well as Deja Vu, I knew a fairly decent percentage of the others but those were question marked out.


    Shadows of Colossus screen shot is pretty awesome as well.

    Arg! Turns out there were a few errors. I know the line but not which one exactly.

    Row 2: 1 wrong: Final Fantasy II, not 4?
    Row 4: 2 wrong
    Row 5: 1 wrong
    Row 6: 2 wrong
    Row 7: 1 wrong: Contra III: The Alien Wars, not Super Contra?
    Row 8: 1 wrong
    Row 10: 1 wrong

    I think I still have errors with full names. Here's a note from the collage-maker himself:

    Remember, I need version/system identifiers when necessary. For example, there are 6 recognized versions of Road Rash on Wikipedia: Road Rash, Road Rash II, Road Rash 3: Tour De Force, Road Rash 3D, Road Rash 64, and Road Rash: Jailbreak. Which one am I showing in the collage? If you know the game is part of a series, it is a safe bet I'll want the full name. This is where most people are getting the answers "wrong." I won't penalize for over-defining - for instance, the very first Castlevania game is called, simply, Castlevania, but if you put "Castlevania I" or something, that's acceptable (but you don't have to).

    The battle toads game on 10 isn't Battle Toads and Double Dragon is it? I'm pretty sure it's not, but still the rest seem right to me...

    Is 8 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Arcade (It's definitely the arcade version)? Pikmin = Pikmin 2 (::edit:: I'm late)?

    Row 6: Paperboy could be Paperboy 2?

    Row 5: Burgertime was Hamburger in Japan if that's any use? I think the Adam's Family had a subtitle too.

    Row 4: That version of Roadrash is Roadrash 64 I -think-. There's also something up with that version of Mortal Kombat, you only fight reptile on most versions at the bottom of the pit.

    Instead of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, maybe it's Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence


    Row 8,1: Maybe it's "Disney's Duck Tales"?


    That Wind Waker pic... probably "The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker" to suffice your friend's game names

    Well, it's clearly Mortal Kombat 1. But yeah, I thought you fought Reptile elsewhere.. oh well.

    I know this isn't what the thread is about, but it's been killing me.

    There's this game I used to play at school... an edutainment game. You basically picked a fish and tried to survive in a coral reef. You usually got eaten pretty quick. It was 2d, controlled with the mouse. I remember playing as a clown fish or one of those blue and yellow ones. It was pretty tough not to die.

    Reptile's throwing the spear though. Doesn't he only have that in MK1?

    Edit: "Metal Gear Solid: Sons of Liberty" should be "Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty"

    Okay, here's the corrections so far, no word yet from the judge:

    Row 2: Final Fantasy II, not 4
    or is it Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, not just MGS:SoL?
    Row 4: Roadrash 64 and one more wrong
    Row 5: Donkey Kong Country 64
    Row 6: 2 wrong
    Row 7: Contra III: The Alien Wars, not Super Contra
    Row 8: Pikmin 2
    Row 10: 1 wrong

    I'll post back as soon as I get confirmation that these corrections are good.
