DreamcastGuy While not technically a game, I'm surprised "Bleem!" didn't make this list. It's a great part of Dreamcast history.

Fighters History sucked really bad, but it was more like Fatal Fury than Street Fighter in its gameplay.

Ah, Noriega... The memories. It's funny to always remember how fast a guy can passes from "ally" to "criminal", and how fast the U.S. can decide to bring down some "freedom" and "democracy" to a place, as soon as their CIA designated right wing dictator in turn decides not to play ball anymore. It was a dick-move to make him a villain on a videogame, you know, all things considered.

I feel you on the WOW addiction. at one time I was part of Exiled from Hell and in the top 3 players of my class. Some days I miss it, but now I can look at the game and relax knowing it has changed into something I no longer recognise or want to play.

What studio blacklisted you DreamcastGuy? Great video!

Fun fact about Tengen: it was formed by Namco under their Atari Arcade division (Yeah, Atari was split off into two companies when it was sold) because they were sick of Nintendo's three game policy, so Namco did what Konami pulled with Ultra Games and formed Tengen. They weren't looking to pirate Nintendo games, they just wanted to publish more games for the system. The real reason over the Tetris lawsuit is because Tengen's representative actually thought he negotiated console and arcade rights for the game, and Nintendo wanted to set the record straight. The truth is due to sloppy negotiations with the Soviet government Tengen, and through them Atari Arcade Division and Namco, only had the licensing rights to the arcade versions of Tetris, while Nintendo had the console rights.

Actually the real reason Universal lost to Nintendo in the lawsuit over Donkey Kong is it was revealed in court that Universal got sloppy in renewing King Kong's copyright and King Kong entered The Public Domain.

Lesson of the day, don't try to sue someone for 10 million that's isn't particularly rich. Even if you win you won't get that much you idiots, even after your victim sells everything they own. Sue Macdonald's at least then they might might just write it off as a day of lost profit and move on.

Just a small note, Nintendo didn't win against Universal Studios because they played Donkey Kong in the courtroom, they won because Nintendo's lawyer brought up the fact that Universal Studios won a previous trial about King Kong by proving that King Kong itself is public domain, thus proving that Universal Studios doesn't even own the rights to King Kong themselves.

What hurts me about Too Human, sure it wasn't a good game, I'd say its factually a bad game even. But I had so much enjoyment in that game, truly a series that needs a second shot sometime in the future. The plot had promise, had allot of interesting concepts mixing Norse mythology and cybernetics. Any developer listening to this, please give us a reboot that is in a different style for Too Human, PLEASE, I BEG YOU.

That was a cool fact. wow hard to imagine Popeye instead of Jumpman in Donkey Kong. Funny how they can recycle and reinvent a character such as Jumpman and turn him into the face of Nintendo Mario. Wouldn't know if there are enough characters like a Jumpman/Mario to do a top 10 but was wondering if you might consider a top 10 for characters like Jumpman that were recycled turning into some of the most recognizable game characters we know today.

Domino D (5 months ago)
Very fun and interesting list. Number 6 pisses me off a little though. The fact that someone could sue for being addicted to a video game is asinine, and I am glad that didn't start a dangerous precedent. Number 10 made me laugh, as it sounded like they nailed Noriega perfectly.
Alex Noa (5 months ago)
Domino D Depends, if it is demonstrated that video games, particularly online/mmo type games, do in fact cause addiction or addictive like syndrome then it is the company's onus to warn people about the risk. They would also be responsible to put in save guards to minimize the harm that it could cause. However, that's assuming that video games do in fact cause addiction and I don't think the current evidence really demonstrates this. Basically, if a company made a drink that had a highly addictive and destructive substance in it, should they not be responsible for rehabilitating those that consumed their product? They didn't know the risks when consuming it.

Rump Roastwitch Jim has a long video that explains the whole case of. His channel, also he didn't even review the game, it was a Jimpression (First Impression), and he mostly said the game creators needed to fix the game, it's a pretty insane story which just got more and more insane.
