    Ok, i might get shot for this [​IMG] but i have never played any of the Zelda games for a start!
    Neither have i played Panzer Dragoon, Shen Mue, Phantasy Star Online, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Perfect Dark, Banjo Kazooie, FzeroX, Chrono Cross, Vagrant Story or Xenogears.
    I'm sure there's more and having never owned an N64 or a Saturn explains some...anyone else missed out on some classics?

    I never played Chuckie Egg. Nor Jet-Set Willy... Err.
    I don't know that you can say a game's great if you've never played it, though. I just started playing Super Mario 64 due to all the people telling me what a landmark game it was and I'm not that impressed, but then probably not my sort of game!![​IMG]

    There have been so many games I haven't played it would be hard to start a list. How many of them actually live up to the hype is impossible to tell without first hand experience.

    Just about anything from the last ten years.

    Especially Battlesphere.

    I never played Riven, though I did play Myst.

    I missed out on pretty much every excellent RPG before the PlayStation ones. I picked up some old ones, but not many at all.

    Myst was the game that forced me to buy a new computer to play, and it was the first PC game I had played since Lode Runner. Looking back now I can see it was kind of crude, but at the time I thought it was the height of gaming excellence!
    Then again, I'm a huge fan of Hudson Hawk as well.

    Anything between my original NES to my Xbox I missed. I'm sure I've missed MANY good games.
