Why would I take the easy route when I can spend hours trying to get my old CD-ROM Star Control/Star Control II collection working? That's half of the fun with PC games, right? :lol:

EDIT: There's a PSP port?! I am all over that!

Star control PSP port, sure your not thinking of Wing Commander!
If you can see the future while remembering the past, you may just have control of the present.

so far it seems like Pitfall and Star Control II are pretty popular picks?

It can be beaten? I thought it just scrolled indefinitely. I know Pitfall 2 can be beaten...

Also, I back the shmups that have been listed, particularly R-Type and Gates of Thunder, because I have them on the VC and I like competing for high scores. Gates of Thunder is tough as nails!

Use the badge criteria.

20,000 pts. = beaten!
