Best Ever System Bundle?

Post by crusto » Sun Mar 01, 2015 10:55 am

In response to this thread http://www.retrogamer.net/forum/viewtop ... =2&t=50488

What is the best, or your personal favourite bundle?

For me it would be the Resi 4 edition of the GameCube, super game and a limited edition console and joypad in the box. You can't ask for much more really.

Or maybe the original standard SNES and Super Mario World bundle, purely on the excellence of the game.

The Amiga 500 Flight Of Fantasy bundle.
Rainbow Islands, F29 Retaliator, Escape From The Planet Of The Robot Monsters are all great games plus you get the excellent Deluxe Paint 2 with it.

Either my ST Power Pack - amazing value with 20 different games, most of which were great. Or Mega Drive + Streets Of Rage and Sonic 8)

A personal one for me. The Turtles NES boxset.

Following that it was Snes + Marioworld.

SNES with Street Fighter 2 Turbo. Amazing console, amazing game, amazing box.

A couple of obvious ones but Megadrive with Sonic and Mega Games 1 and Gameboy with Tetris.

It was either that C90 that came with my Spectrum or my Snes and Streetfighter 2, it's a pity I couldn't get a second pad for the Snes until a little while after I got it, the woman I was talking to in Debenhams couldn't work out why I wanted a second pad either!

Isn't the point to list what you personally think is the best bundle not list them all?

Personally for me the megadrive with sonic (which I got one Christmas as a kid).

Also even though I had a gamecube I got the resident evil 4 bundle. Great looking unit with a stunning game.

Yes but I couldn't name just one so I made a list of bundled games I think made for rather good bundles. But if I had to reduce it to just one I guess I'd say Mario 64 + N64 bundle. A close second would be SNES + Street Fighter II Turbo and then MD + Sonic and SNES + DKC.
