I had to go with other to be fair, in no particular order my favourites are

Phantasy Star (online AND the original RPGs)
Shenmue
JSR
Panzer Dragoon Series

I couldn't decide on my favourite but I'd have to say that Shenmue 2 and Panzer Dragoon SAGA are tied for my favourite game of all time vote I think lol

I added a few more choices as I seemed to have forgotten a few big ones  :-[

I activated it so you can change your vote too.

Interesting to see Sega resurecting many of these games once again for HD

And with good results too, I really like these classic games in HD.  Just downloaded Guardian Heroes last night, awesome game.

For me, it would have to be Sonic. Sure, they've done a lot of other great franchises. But I've been playing Sonic games since they started porting them to the PC. I've been a major fan since then, even during Sonic's... er, less than shining moments. Generations and Colors were fantastic, though.

Second place goes to Streets Of Rage, and Ristar's somewhere in there, too. Although he's not a franchise.

To any of you who were wanting a new Shenmue: Have you tried looking into the Yakuza series? I mean, I know it's a not a direct continuation, but it has a lot of the same gameplay, and some really good combat. The first two games have been released on the PS2, and from what I hear, the second one is generally the best place to start.

It's in Japanese, but there is an English version, although only the first game has English voice acting.

Somebody was saying to me last night that this is pretty much a spin-off of Shenmue and was programmed by the same team of people.

Yakuza sounds good but it won't satisfy fans who want to see the story concluded. I would be happy if they just did episodic parts over XBLA and made them with slightly older tech, I'm still happy playing the games on just the DC, they still look incredible and have stood up well

So many... I voted Shinobi though. Especially Revenge of Shinobi has a special place in my heart.

I also love Sonic, Streets of Rage, Phantasy Star and Wonder Boy though, and Alex Kidd had two very nice games.


Things like Space Harrier or Outrun I respect today, but I have no fond memories of them as I am German, and kids are not allowed in arcades here, so all the games that live from the arcade magic kind of lose that advantage in these parts. Golden Axe is another game many love, but I find the controls too sluggish.

I originally voted for Streets of Rage but I'd be tempted to change my vote to Shinobi having now spent more time playing those games.
