I plan on getting:

-Castlevania: Lament of Innocence (PS2)
-Ninja Gaiden (X-Box)
-Kingdom Hearts (PS2 GH)
-Sly Cooper (PS2 GH)
-NFS Underground (PS2 since it's the only one with online play)
-Half-Life 2 (PC)
-DX 2(PC)
-Far Cry (PC)
-MGS Twin Snakes (GC)
-Mario Kart Double Dash (GC)
-Final Fantasy Tactics Advance (GBA)
-Banjo-Kazooie Grunty's Revenge (GBA)
-Fire Emblem (GBA)
-Crash Nitro Kart (GBA)
-Mario 3 (GBA)
-Mario & Luigi (GBA)
-Sudeki (X-Box)
-Pikmin 2 (GC)
-Prince of Persia (X-Box version, probably)
-Beyond Good and Evil (ditto)
-X 2: The Threat (PC)

Holy crap that's a lot of games. I don't think I'll be able to afford all of them... and I still have more that I want!

Today, I went to the fairly new (this year) locally owned videogame store downtown, with the money I got from my birthday... I spent $110 on F-Zero GX, Skies of Arcadia Legend, and Metroid Fusion. Now I have just $35... hopefully enough to get Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. After that... well I hope I get/make some more money. :)

Anyway... for what I actually plan on getting by the end of the year. Hopefully.

- Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne
- Lords of the Realm III

and what I want most for the Cube.

- Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3: Rebel Strike

Other than that...I have quite a lot of games to choose from, which include (I'll probably end up getting a couple of games from each of these lists... eventually...)...

- Gauntlet: Dark Legacy
- 1080 Avalanche
- Beyond Good & Evil
- Mario Kart Double Dash!!!
- Pikmin 2
- Pikmin
- Star Wars: Clone Wars
- Soul Calibur 2
- P.N. 03
- Viewtiful Joe

hmm... what else... I'm sure there are others. Plenty of them. Not sure what, offhand, though.

- Medieval: Viking Invasion
- DX 2
- High Heat Baseball 2004
- Disciples 2: Guardians of the Light
- Disciples 2: Servants of the Dark (don't want as much as Light)
- Jedi Knight 2 - Jedi Outcast
- Alpha Centauri
- Lucasarts Collection (with The Dig, Sam & Max, Full Throttle, and one other... if I can find it, that is...
etc, etc, etc, etc... there are so, so many older PC games I'd like to pick up eventually... but probably will never get to... would you like me to try to list a few dozen? :) No really, I could easily...

GBA - like PC, way way more games than I'll ever even think of getting.
(already out gba games)
- Gradius Galaxies, Super Mario Advance (1, 2, 3... though I want World most, then Yoshi's Island, and SMB2 least), Kirby for GBA (forget the title...), Lunar Legend, Rock 'n Roll Racing, F-Zero Maximum Velocity, Mario Kart Super Circuit, Wario Ware, Wario Land 4, Megaman Zero, Sonic Advance (2 more than 1, but want both), Advance Wars (1), Golden Sun, Golden Sun: The Lost Age, Zelda - LttP/FS... probably others... plus upcoming stuff, of course.

(upcoming gba games)
- Mario & Luigi
- SMB3
- Fire Emblem

-Mario Kart: DD
-Rogue Squadron III
-Cossacks II: Napoleonic Wars
-Resident Evil IV (or is that next year?)
-Resident Evil II

RE 4 is coming out next year.

Oh and I wouldn't bother getting those PSX RE ports if I were you. They look identical to the PSX versions (aside from smoother textures) and cost waaay too much.

But after a while they drop in price, I'm sure... I'm not interested, but Darunia might be. Especially if he doesn't have a PSX?

No, it doesn't look like they're going to drop in price anytime soon. I forgot what Capcom's stupid excuse for charging $40 for straight PSX ports was, but that's how it is. They're not worth more than $10 each.

ABF is right, I don't have a PSX. I got REmake for only $15, and was so blown away with it that I got RE0...which is a far cry short of REmake, but still good; and everyone tells me that RE2 is by far the best of the series. I'll just pick it up 2nd hand somewhere, if the normal price is disagreeable.

Uh... RE2 definitely doesn't hold a candle to RE0 and REmake. You're in for a big surprise if you expect something as good as the GC original RE games...

There are PC versions of the first three games, but they're PSX ports and are probably out of print...
