That's right, no including CDs. It wouldn't be so hard if I let you do that. :wink:

I can't believe Lemmi just recommended China Warrior and two TV Sports games.... Anyhow, my HuCard collection is small, but here's what I've played and would recommend:

Bonk's Adventure
Bonk's Revenge
Ninja Spirit
Neutopia
Neutopia II
Parasol Stars
New Adventure Island
Devil's Crush
Dragon's Curse
Air Zonk
Splatterhouse
Blazing Lazers
Military Madness

Here's what I haven't played, but plan on getting because they look like good games:

Final Lap Twin
Shockman
Alien Crush
Galaga '90
Fantasy Zone
R-Type
Silent Debuggers
Soldier Blade
Super Star Soldier
Somer Assault
Bomberman '93
Bonk 3: Bonk's Big Adventure

Then these are maybes because other people have said they're good, but I'm not sure I trust them:

Dungeon Explorer
J.J. and Jeff
Legend of Hero Tonma

Also, hesitant recommendations for these, as long as you know what you're getting into:

Keith Courage in Alpha Zones
Power Golf

There, that's 30!

i didnt see anything about recommending games here, just what you like :P given that i havent played my TG16 system in about 10 years except for the CD game It came from the Desert before i sold it. i probably couldnt handle China Warrior if i played it now :lol:

and i had alot of fun playing those TV sports games especially Hockey since at the Time it was the only 2 player co-op hockey out

not to be mean, but China Warrior was bad when it came out. The size of the characters was impressive but the game was always bad.

Final Lap Twin is good for a sports game, I had some fun with that.

Blazing Lazers, Bonk 1, 2, 3, air zonk, super air zonk, splatterhouse, keith courage, legendary axe, final lap twin and dragon spirit are my favorite TG-16 games.

No, I do not (yet) own super air zonk or bonk 3, so you cannot steal those from me :p

But you might like the being jumped on part! hehehe

I don't need games from people, I just need to get into play. I've been playing TG-16 quite a bit lately but I need a large choice of games as the ones I've been playing have been just ok and I don't have the CD add-on. I have however been enjoying Galaga '90. The original was one of my fav arcade games growing up and I'm glad I went back to playing that remake. So far I've gotten to level 26. I do believe this version has a final level, the old one, like a lot of games back then, didn't; or if it did was well past 100. LOL

I just got Hexen for the Saturn and I love it so I'm torn between playing those two systems and have been throughly ignoring my poor 3DO. At least I'm back to playing games instead of just buying them for the sake of having them.

I might, but I don't think my girlfriend would like it lol

I did score some phat loots on ebay yesterday. Tiger Road and Yo Bro for the TG16, another (I think) 3DO import porn game called Nice Body, which I picked up for less than half of what digital press says it's worth. Another Saturn import as well, called "Six Inch My Darling" which appears to be some sort of jRPG, but I can't seem to find any info on it. I bought it because I thought the name was hillarious. Japanese...6 inches...yeah right :lol:

No, I guess she wouldn't. LOL Nice Body is just one of those picture games, no porn. It's always cheap, I wouldn't go by DP says, the online market changes with the breeze. But "Six Inch My Darling"? hmmm I might have to borrow that one from you. LOL Actually it's an adventure game involving a six in girl(s).

Well Mobius, unless you like REALLY girly games I wouldn't suggest buying Fantasy Zone. It's an all pink and icing kinda game. Keith Courage never did much for me, I only played that one because it came with the system and I had nothing else until I bought more games.

Alien Crush isn't as good as Devil's Crush, but it looks just as cool. Galaga '90 & R-Type everyone should own. Silent Debuggers is interesting, it's a FPS but it goes scene by scene, kinda like Shadowgate and DejaVu but fullscreen.

Well, there's only one copy of Nice Body on ebay, and it's at $48 after shipping, which is about double what I paid, so I'm happy.

And I have no clue about that Saturn import, neither of my Saturns even work, I just bought it because it was cheap and the name was hillarious.

No comment on the TG games? I have no clue what to expect of them.

What can I say, I'm a sucker for bright, colorful, cheerful games. I don't know why everyone always wants their games to be so serious...

Sorry, but Yo Bro is pretty awful and Tiger Road is pretty generic.

Nice Body is indeed a disappointing title. And you can't say "Title" without saying ... oh wait there is a lady present... :)

R-Type is awesome mind you and so is Galaga. i onlu have the PS1 versions and I generally believe the further you are from the original, the crapper something gets... so yeah, get them!

OMG I'm up late and I just remembered... Ninja Ryukenden! aka Ninja Gaiden! It was a Japan only title I totally forgot about. I just put it in and played until I lost a life. I haven't played that in so long! The music is different than the NES version... prob better on the NES but the graphics look better on the TG-16.

PS. Wanna hear something really creepy? The game was called "Shadow Warriors" in almost all other countries (NES), and that is the same title given to the Japanese version of "Shadow: War of Succession" for our beloved 3DO.
