Thanks, to this video from Planet Geekdom -
and special thanks to Retrohumanoid (I'm using his backgrounds - that I slightly modified - and his signature style - of course).
I needed these (and a bunch more) and I hope they are of some use to others. If there are any special requests or changes - let me know.
Additionally, if Retrohumanoid - has an issue with me doing these - I'll find a way to modify them (new backgrounds I think).
Hope people like them. I would definitely appreciate constructive criticism - I've only been working on them for a few days. More to come...
Edit - I took down an earlier version I made for Rail Shooters - it had problems.
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:
Nintendo Gameboy Advance
Sega Game Gear
Bandai Wonderswan / Color
Neo Geo Pocket / Color
Sega Master System
Sega Genesis / Mega Drive
Nintendo Entertainment System
Super Nintendo Entertainment System
Nintendo Wii U
Nintendo Wii Ware
Arcade games!!! Duh!
Sony Playstation 1
Sony Playstation 2
Sony Playstation 3
MSX 1 and 2 combined
PC Engine / Turbografx-16
PC Engine CD / Turbografx-CD
Magnavox Odyssey 2
Neo Geo AES / CD combined
Needed these. Let me know if there is interest in others.
I present a labor-of-love. It is a project that I have been working on for a while. It is part-theme and part-playlist.
Basically, it's a historical look through Nintendo's console history with playlists designed to capture the best of every release (in 20, 50, and 100 game lists). Included in the zip file are customized clear logos, XML playlist files, and downloaded Youtube commercials.
The Best of Nintendo - Please check out the video and let me know what you think.
*I started by aggregating data into spreadsheets for each console. Based upon review scores, polls, and web lists, I created my own lists of the best, most important, successful, or under-appreciated games for each console. Spreadsheets with sources here.
Best of Nintendo Home Consoles
Best of Handheld Consoles
If you feel these lists are criminally incorrect, please let me know.
*I created clear logos for each playlist. I used a variety of sources from the web and the clear logo collection in the Unified theme pack as starting resources. I haven't used Photoshop in quite a while, but it was fun getting back into it. If you have any requests or suggestions regarding the logos, please let me know.
*Then I scoured Youtube seeking interesting and funny commercials for each platform. Clearly, I could not find many of them in high quality. For many videos, I had to edit out intros or outros. Apologies to original uploaders for not giving proper credit. If anyone has suggestions or higher quality versions of these commercials, please let me know.
*Grabbed general console information from Wikipedia - slight editing.
*Used a combination of the excellent Unified theme, Coverbox theme, Famicom theme , and BG Clean theme for the game lists.
*Obviously Game & Watch is not a real top 10 - I'm still waiting on Mame to start emulating some of the more popular releases.
*Nintendo 3DS and Wii U are limited to top 20 for now. Also waiting for emulation to catch up with these newer platforms.
*Big thanks to Colpipes78 for the great set-ups, implementing Rocket Launcher, media, roms, and making my life (and many others) a thousand times easier.
I hope some of you find parts of it useful.
Next - Sega or Sony?
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.
