Games I'd Like To See On GCCX

GCCX, or GameCenter CX, is a Japanese television show that's starting to see some exposure in the west, partly due to the abortive efforts of "Kotak" to translate it in as obnoxious a way as possible, but largely because of the focused efforts of a small group of translators and subtitle-ists on the Something Awful forums. I've seen all the episodes they've translated so far, and am very much a fan of Kacho Shinya Arino's struggles with the impossibly cruel games of Nintendo (and occasionally other consoles) past.

Anyone interested can check this YouTube playlist of the translated episodes, provided their disastrous new site update doesn't just eat the link and blow up your computers. Here's hoping that doesn't happen?

My criteria for this list are as follows:

  1. It must be fun to play. Like, in theory at least. I don't want Arino to suffer. Much.
  2. It must be difficult, or made to be difficult in the game's options. Not necessarily crushingly so, but enough to give Arino a run for his money. Which isn't a particularly high bar to set, to be honest.
  3. It must be at least 10 years old. PS1 era or earlier, preferably. (I'll be making at least one exception to this rule, though.)

Good calls on Plok and Snake, Rattle and Roll. When he started playing Battletoads I thought "Well, this is the end of Arino." I was shocked at how that one turned out.
