mario 64
any fifa game
most cod games
gta 3 and its two clones
gran turismo 3

but what are some of the others ?

Strangely enough, you can buy Wii Sports for £20 in GAME on Nintendo's new classics label (or whatever it's called). Why would anybody need this? Doesn't it still come free with every new machine?
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Altered Beast, although I'd suspect that most pack-in games are pretty common.

Don't think it comes free in the Mario Kart bundle one. (possibly others?)

Strange. I always assumed it was a standard pack-in thing. I know they added Sports Resort to bundles and still kept the original in the deal.

Also, how about Chu Chu Rocket for the DC? :wink:

There are a lot of very common 2600 games to be fair.

7800 - Hat Trick, Barnyard Blaster, Meltdown, Jinks, Pole Position 2

Jaguar - Cybermorph, Checkered Flag, Tempest 2000, Cannon Fodder, Dragon

Lynx - Ishido, Gates Of Zendocon, Electrocop, Kung Food, Cyberball
