  1. The Best?!?

    A collection of playlists and clear logos for the top games from a a large number of consoles, computers, and handhelds. Most folders contain a Gold, silver, bronze, and best playlist (which combines the bronze, silver, and gold)
    Below you will find links to all the spreadsheets for the sources I used to compile the data. REMINDER: These are not in order of “Best” these are in order of mentions based upon aggregating a number of “Best of” lists. In some cases, smaller lists, or higher ranked games were given greater weight to arrive at a more balanced list.
     I have omitted some systems - either because there weren’t enough quality games released, games are still being released, or I don’t have them in my Launchbox set-up (yet).
    These took me a long time to compile. I hope they are helpful.
    Best of lists now include:

  2. Angry Video Game Nerd - AVGN Playlist

    Collect all the Angry Video Game Nerd games
    This playlist includes games up until the June 5th 2019 episode called: Superman 64 Returns!! (N64) - Angry Video Game Nerd (AVGN)
    Place the file in this folder
    C:\Users\[YOUR USERNAME HERE]\LaunchBox\Data\Playlists
    CLEAR LOGO:

    (Disclaimer, this has 342 of the retro games James Rolfe has played in his main AVGN series - that's MOST of the games, but not every game he has ever played.
    If your collection includes obscure systems like CD32 and CDTV, and newer games for PS2 and Xbox 360, you will have to add the games manually.
    A few PS1 and GameCube games are missing, examples are Charlies Angels and Planet of The Apes.
    Other than that, you should be off to a good start.)

  3. PLAYLISTS for many Platforms

    From my experience LaunchBox does not mind Playlists being added that contain game names that are not in your library, It will simply ignore games that are in the XML but are not contained in you library. This seems to also apply to Arcade Games Added as MAME games, LaunchBox simply reads the Launchbox Database ID number of the game in the XML and automatically knows where the game belongs. If you find Bigbox runs slow after adding these playlists it is probably due to having a much smaller library than is contained in the XMLs Simply open launchBox and edit the playlist select the "games" tab and scroll to the bottom and there will be a list of missing games, simply delete these, holding down the delete key and restart LaunchBox. 
    UPDATE: Added RUN & GUN Genre Playlist for all systems. Also tidied up some of the other playlists.
    UPDATE: MOTOR games added this has the same contents as the DRIVING games xml.
    I have full Hyperlist collections of games for a lot of  Consoles and Handhelds and I have made "Genre Playlists" for EVERY single game in my library with one XML playlist for each Genre. The systems Included are:   - Arcade/Mame from 1987 to present.
    - Sony PlayStation 2, Sony PlayStation 1, Sony PlayStation Portable, Sony PlayStation Portable Minis,
    - Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo 64, Super Nintendo, Super Famicom, Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo Disk System, Nintendo Famicom, Nintendo DS, Nintendo GameBoy Advance, Nintendo GameBoy Color, Nintendo GameBoy.
    - Sega Dreamcast, Sega Saturn, Sega Mega Drive (Europe), Sega Mega Drive (Japan),  Sega Genesis (USA), Sega CD (USA), Sega Mega CD (Europe), Sega 32X, Sega Master System, Sega Mark III, Sega SG-1000, Sega Game Gear.
    - Atari Jaguar, Atari 7800, Atari Lynx
    - NEC Turbo Grafx, NEC Turbo Grafx CD, NEC PC-FX
    - SNK Neo Geo AES, SNK NEO GEO CD, SNK Neo Geo Pocket
    - Commodore Amiga CD32
    - Panasonic 3DO
    - Amstrad GX 4000
    -Bandai Wonderswan, Bandai Wonderswan Color     I have also made "Intro Videos" for each Genre. They can be downloaded here along with the logos:    I have split the full collections of these games into the following "Genre Playlists":   - Fighting Games
    - Shoot Em' Ups
    - Light Gun Games
    - Beat Em' Ups
    - Run & Gun Games
    - Shooter Games
    - Sports Games
    - Racing Games/Motor games
    - Rhythm Games
    - Horror Games
    - Flying Games
    - Platform Games
    - Puzzle Games
    - Role Playing Games
    - Strategy Games
    - All Games 
    - Board Games & Card Games   I am very strict on what game goes into what category, for example wrestling and boxing games I put into the Sports category instead of the Fighters category. Horror is just there for fun, It only contains some games that I like so only add if that category interests you. I know their might be the odd mistake here and there but organizing all these games took a lllllllong time so the odd mistake was bound to happen either way its a good starting point.
    Anyway to anyone who finds these useful, enjoy! If you find my work of use could you please consider donating to my Patreon found here: https://www.patreon.com/RobinLevingstone

  4. Years

    Here are playlists for every year between 1971 and 2019. They are auto-populated, so just import them and they're ready to use. 
    I recommend sorting them into categories by decade as seen in the screenshot. That way you can select the 1990s category and see all games from the 1990s, or select a single year and see games for just that year.

  5. NES - Hidden Gems 55

    Hello All,
    I have compiled a playlist of 55 Nes Hidden Gems from 30 different sources (web and YouTube), so essentially this should be close to a 'best of the best' hidden gems list, or at least widely agreed to have qualitative value. Of course,  ultimately this purely a subjective matter, as everyone's tastes will vary.
     
    Method
    Review source and games appearing in list counts as one 'vote'. Repeat 30 times for each list Total all votes Remove all games that only have one vote Selection Criteria
    Licensed games only US and European releases only (famicom may come later) Games only - no quiz, etc. Games must have more than 1 'vote' Games list!

  7. Nintendo Entertainment System - Best of 20 / 50 / 100

    Hey Folks,
    In conjunction with the project I'm working on, I have compiled three "best of" lists for the Nintendo Entertainment System. I have included a top 20, 50, and a 100.
    Here's a link to the explanation of the project I've been working on. It includes all Nintendo home consoles. More playlists to follow. Hope this helps some of us with large collections or are new to retro gaming.
    Let me know what you think.
    UPDATE : I've added three more playlists: Top 10% (73 games), Top 20% (143 games), and Top 25% (180) games.

    Hi guys, 
    I created a playlist of 2D arcade fighting games and thought I'd share it. This is not an exhaustive list. There are 133 games from MAME, Atomiswave, and Naomi. You will need the MAME and Demul emulators installed.
    All the Neo Geo and Capcom ones are included. I was hoping the community could collaborate on this one as there are plenty games missing I'm sure, but at least this initial list will get the ball rolling on a bigger list of games.

    I created a playlist for the NES Classic Edition over the weekend and thought I'd share it with the community in case anyone was interested in it. It contains all 30 games and uses the No-Intro rom naming convention.
    I've also included a logo:

  22. Top NES Games

    The definitive top NES games. Included is four files so you can use whichever works for you: Top 4, 10, 16, and 29. If you want best 65, there's another file on the forum by Jason Carr. I'd recommend the top 4 or top 10
     
    All the top games lists seem opinionated so I decided to make a list that would just be the games most people agree belong on such a list without anyone's personal idiosyncrasies (If this was my personal list you'd see Solar Jetman, but that's a niche game). 
     
    In case anyone cares, this was my process. First I looked through 14 Top nes lists, and made a list of games that were in most of them. I then gave them point values based on how many lists they were in and how high in those lists, and deleted those with low scores. Next, I compared each of the games to each other (looking at each list that two games are in and seeing which is higher than the other the majority of the time). I then ordered them based on that and deleted the bottom ones (sorry Duck Hunt, you're always at the bottom of the list). At this point, I had 29 games and decided to go with that number rather than delete four games just for the sake of having a round number (though I'm not sure that the bottom three games belong, they sort of teetered on the edge of being included or dropped). I split them into groups based on where there was a decent drop from one game to the next, though this was much more apparent in tier 1->2->3 than 3->4. 
     
    Here's the list if you want to see it before downloading the xml:
     
    Tier 1:
    1 Super Mario Bros. 3
    2 The Legend of Zelda
    3 Mega Man 2
    4 Metroid
     
    Tier 2:
    5 Super Mario Bros.
    6 Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse
    7 Bionic Commando
    8 Contra
    9 (Mike Tyson's) Punch-Out!!
    10 Final Fantasy
     
    Tier 3:
    11 Super Mario Bros. 2
    12 Kirby's Adventure
    13 Tetris (preferably tengen)
    14 River City Ransom
    15 Crystalis
    16 Ninja Gaiden
     
    Tier 4:
    17 Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
    18 Castlevania
    19 Mega Man 3
    20 Bubble Bobble
    21 Blaster Master
    22 Tecmo Super Bowl
    23 Dragon Warrior III
    24 DuckTales
    25 Excitebike
    26 Kid Icarus
    Tier 4.5
    27 Metal Gear
    28 R.C. Pro-Am
    29 Dragon Warrior
     
    Notes:
    Although you'd think that this method would miss out on games in a series thanks to different lists having different entries, I found that this was not the case. Even pooling games from a series that no single entry made it did not make any series make it. At best you got something like Duck Hunt, a game at the bottom of every list.
    That being said, I did pool the nintendo version of tetris with the tengen version. Most lists had only one, but no list specified nintendo over tengen and some did vice versa, so I counted nintendo tetris as tengen tetris (except for one list that had both)
    Personal note, do not play the gba version of Super Mario Bros 3. Play either the NES or SNES version. The GBA version might have some extra features, but restarting from the level rather than the world ruins the game
    Also, although it's on the list, don't play the nes version of Metal Gear. Play either the msx2 version or the slightly updated port included in the ps2 Metal Gear Solid 3 Subsistence disk 2 and the xbox 360, ps3, and psvita Metal Gear Solid 3 HD edition
     
    That's all, enjoy!

    Some of these games are part of my list because I grew up playing them, others are just there because they are classics but the vast majority are there because they are actually still fun to play today. I tried not to put many arcade ports on here but there is a couple if they were actually really good ports. There are a couple of improvement hacked roms which are homebrews and not hacks that you would need to get and they are freely available over on http://atariage.com/index.php they are not copyright protected so there is no worry about that.

    Here is the list of games in the playlist file and a short blurb about it:
    Adventure - Not really a favourite of mine but it is a classic 2600 game.
    Atlantis - Sort a Missile Command clone but different enough and unique.
    Barnstorming - Fly through barns, what other games offer this ?
    Beamrider - Another game that isn't really a favourite of mine but many people like it so it's here.
    Berzerk - Arcade port but really well done.
    Boxing (Activision) - This game is a great 2 player vs game, really fun button mashing action.
    Chopper Command - Horizontal shooter Defender clone but by Activision so you know it's good.
    Communist Mutants From Space - That name alone makes it great but it is a very good Space Invaders clone.
    Cosmic Ark - Shoot asteroids and abduct people, how can you go wrong ?
    Dark Chambers - Closest thing to Gauntlet on the 2600.
    Demon Attack - Probably the best Space Invaders clone similar to Phoenix but it's an Imagic game and looks great.
    Dolphin - It's like Ecco the Dolphin only it's on the 2600.
    Dragonfire - Steal treasure from a dragon, nothing else needs to be said.
    DragonStomper - Insane RPG game for its time, try it out.
    Enduro - Awesome racing game, Outrun before Outrun.
    Frostbite - Mix of Q-Bert meets Frogger but with a unique twist, fun game.
    H.E.R.O - It's freaking H.E.R.O. arguably the best game on the system.
    Keystone Kapers - Fun game I played for many hours as a kid.
    Laser Blast - Fun Space Invaders in reverse, you play the invader destroying the base.
    Official Frogger - This was made by Starpath for the Super Charger addon. It looks great, you have to see it in comparison to the Parker Bros version.
    Pac-Man (8K homebrew) - This one you need to get from Atariage forums. This is how Pac-Man should have been on the system.
    Pengo - Fun puzzle game.
    Phoenix - Space Invaders clone but I played it a lot as a kid so it's on here.
    Pitfall and Pitfall II - 'Nuff said.
    River Raid - Also 'nuff said, play it if you never played it.
    Sea Quest - Fun underwater horizontal shooter.
    Solaris - Late release for the system, looks great and is a lot of fun.
    Space Rocks - This is another Atariage homebrew and is the best version of Asteroids on the 2600. The original Asteroids is left off because of this version.
    Spider Fighter - Another Activision games and great fast paced shooter.
    Stampede - Rope cows, how many games has this ? A lot of fun and played it a lot as a kid.
    Starmaster - First person space combat and another Activision game.
    Survival Island - Another Starpath Super Charger addon game, swim to the island without getting eaten.
    Tutankham - Raid tombs and steal treasure.
    Yars Revenge - System exclusive and a classic.
