I voted Shining Force even though I already own that on Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection. Earthworm Jim sucks.

My vote's for Shining Force, with ToeJam & Earl almost crossing my mind. On another note, I hope Earthworm Jim 2 will come around to be ported due to the popularity the first one's getting from the polls.

Earthworm Jim is going to win, I voted for it. Why cant they just release all of them? One every month at least.

Shining Force! 
Earthworm Jim is fun but I would even prefer Toe Jam & Earl over it.

@OmegaPirate: Have you played ToeJam & Earl in the last decade? It hasn't aged well. I would actually argue that it was never a very good game to begin with, and time certainly hasn't made it any better.

Just letting folks know that ToeJam & Earl is gonna be the next Sega Genesis game for Xbox Live Arcade. Personally, I'm shocked, given how Earthworm Jim at a point received almost half of the votes that were put in.

Isn't someone making a 3D remake of Earthworm Jim for XBLA?  Heard about it on Joystiq a few times very recently.
 
Wish Sega would port Daytona USA or Super GT, or Daytona USA 2...

@jakob187:   
http://www.joystiq.com/2009/08/19/new-earthworm-jim-less-new-than-expected-its-a-remake/
 
" Sega recently announced that due to a licensing issue with Interplay (a result of the newly announced Gameloft/Interplay Earthworm Jim game), Earthworm Jimwould no longer be an option for a new Genesis XBLA game. The company then removed what was at that point the clear winner from its XBLA poll.

Why would a new Earthworm Jim prevent the release of an old one? Because the new one, G4TV's The Feed reports, is a remake and not an original game. That means it isn't the Earthworm Jim 4 announced last year, and that the same game will be available on both Virtual Console (the Genesis version was released on VC in October) and WiiWare. "
 
Actually answers all our questions. edit - Looks like a 1 month XBLA exclusive.  Really really hope it gets the Prince of Persia Classic treatment, that was a really nice remake.

The poll was restarted due to a liscencing error and they had to pull Earthworm Jim, I believe the reason behind it was due to the fact that they are already porting or making an all new Earthworm Jim for XBLA. I don't know anything about ToeJam & Earl though... so I'll give the demo a shot.

I found the story over at 1UP from last week and posted it up in the EJ forums.  Super psyched about this remake, man!!!  Thanks for the heads-up, Diamond!
