I'm glad to see that two remakes of classic games I used to play in my childhood are getting the love they deserve. Both Castle of Illusion and DuckTales are games I think everyone should play. Whether it be the remakes or the classic versions, that style of gameplay is something we don't see a lot today and it's something I think the younger gaming audience needs to experience in order to gain an appreciation for what made gaming what it is today.

What about you? Do you see your favorite game up there? Do you appreciate the classics like I do? Let me know in the comments below!
