You must play through Resi 4 snowkatt, it may not be traditional Resi but it is a gaming masterpiece.

Felgekarp, love a bit of Snow Surfers!

ico is the game i want not shadow of the colossus
But, the thing is, it's there, in your hands, with a machine to play it on. You've got absolutely nothing to lose, even just by turning it on and beating the first Colossus.

You should also try All-Star Fighters. Basically a 2D fighter with loads of cool D3 characters and this time it isn't just the girls but the other weirdos too. So you have Riho (Demolition Girl), Aya (Onechanbara) and others such as the pumpkin-headed chainsaw kid from Splatter Master and a foot soldier from Global Defence Force. Simple and pretty shallow but great fun and interesting fan-service for D3 fanboys :)

Anyway, picked up a few things from Gamestation today. They had GBA games back in but they were all crap and badly damaged, GC games (all crap) and PS1 games (all crap and with shattered cases). Found a few Dreamcast games on the bottom shelf though so picked 2 fighters up for the collection. Both complete with near mint discs and intact cases. Overallm I got...

Dead or Alive 2 (DC)
Virtua Fighter 3tb (DC)
Resident Evil Code Veronica X w/ Devil May Cry demo disc (PS2)
Gun (PS2)
XIII (PS2)
Project Gotham Racing 2 (Xbox)

Factoring in the various multi-buy offers, those six games were £15 which I thought was pretty decent.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.
