@phished0ne: Haha, good point! Use it or lose it, as they say. (Or get buried with your stuff like an Egyptian king).

May I suggest Fatal Labyrinth to you? This game made me think of that game as soon as I saw how the game plays except the music part.

I had not heard of this Genesis game before, but the screenshots make it look very similar (I think it's the room layouts and perspective). Also this part of the description from the wiki makes me want to play it:

Gold can be found throughout the castle, but can not be spent. The more gold collected, the greater number of people that appear at Trykaar's funeral (game over screen).

It's really funny that gold just gets you a better funeral when you die.

As a counterpoint, Sequence was a game I liked that layer RPG mechanics onto a DDR rhythm game though, so maybe I would like this game??? I'm not sure.

A random idea for a list, but I'm into it! May I suggest Decap Attack? (not sure why that was the first thing to come to mind, but hey!)

Interesting feature idea, I'm excited to check this out, especially as a person who has never played an MMO either (and never plan to, the genre doesn't appeal to me AT ALL). Dan is very forthcoming about his opinions on stuff, it seems, so that should make this pretty interesting.

This looks pretty fun, I gotta say. Never actually played the original, but I remember seeing screenshots, etc. so I can tell that this remake is a pretty significant overhaul.

30 dollars might be a little steep for me, though. Plus it's only on PS4 at the moment, so I'll have to wait either way.

I still really like the look of these characters, and the music in that trailer was pretty great. As a fan of Etrian Odyssey, I'm quite looking forward to this game!

This might be the greatest thumbnail for a video ever.

Back in my video game-making class in college, the first game I ever programmed was a straight ripoff of Crazy Climber, except I simplified the controls and made the birds planes that dropped bombs. I couldn't tell you what possessed me to do this.

I worry I'm going to get exhausted from just watching this video.
