"Think about your life, Pippin!
Days are tame and nights the same.
Think about the Beauty, in one perfect flame!
And the angels of the morning are calling out your name!
Pippin, think about...the SUN!"

Ha. I started singing those same lines in my head when I read the description.

Well done.

When one of the "defining games" on your console is an encyclopedia, you're in trouble.

I'm surprised this thing had enough games to fill a top ten list.

Bonus points for one of the defining games being what looks like a half-functional tech demo with Dragon Ball Z characters.

I didn't realize I already rated and commented on this a year ago, and was scrolling down to post this exact comment again,

Mr. Potato Head Saves Veggie Valley was robbed.

So, it turns out that Marathon was actually the first FPS ruined by a console port. I mean, the game is old, but I dunno how easily you could control even a old-school FPS with no shoulder buttons and a control pad.
Old_Zircon
Well it has a trackball, which means it might just be the one playable console FPS ever released.

To be fair, games like Doom and Wolfenstein 3D weren't played with a mouse, so ports of them to a gamepad-based system didn't really hurt them.

Old_Zircon
True, it was other stuff that ruined them.

Check out the controller. Kinda looks like the current xbox controller.

It was actually released in Europe. I actually toyed with it once.
