Enticing. Seems the games are Sonic 1, 2, 3, Gunstar Heroes, Toe Jam and Earl, Puyo Puyo 2, Shining Force, Golden Axe, and Streets of Rage 2.
 
Maybe it will be my excuse to play a non-Sonic or Vectorman Genesis game for the first time....I have heard great things from Gunstar Heroes and Shining Force.

IT'S FUCKING 5 DOLLARS.
 
It would be worth it for a strange experiment.

Yeah, but I have to buy 10 dollars worth of points. 
 
Maybe I'll  check it out, maybe I won't... I already bought a ton of games. :(
