Skitchin'(Genesis, and believe me, I could be here all day with this console...): Unlike it's more recognized cousin Road Rash, it's not as pick up and play, which will turn off a number of impatient gamers. As a game played on inline skates, you can really put a beat down on the other racers, giving it something of a beat 'em up feel. You can upgrade individual pieces of gear between races, provided you did well enough. Depending on what you do on some tracks, you can play bonus tracks for extra money. There's no AI to worry about, all the racers are pretty much out to get you, so either kick their asses, or hitch rides on the back of cars(Back to the Future, late for school style), slingshotting past everything else, possibly pulling off insane tricks(hint: let go of the buttons as soon as you start to do something, if you want to land).

Just a fun lesser known game where you may want to read about how it controls beforehand.

Yeah, guess you'd have to stick with RPG's and strategy games(or as NERV Agent suggested, Visual Novels/Dating sims, or interactive fiction/text adventures) for the most part.

I mean you're here, but I still gotta say, hopefully you're using emulation, where you can reconfigure the controls to your liking.

I'd also hope you were maybe open to other consoles, I know it's not regarded for it's RPG's, but the Genesis has Phantasy Star IV(only go for IV, you may like the others, but they're archaic by comparison), or the Shining Force games.

If that's off the table and it absolutely has to be PS1 or SNES, this translation is like something in between the Shining Force games, for the SNES:

^Hmmm... if it's anything like it's predecessor, they should be going after a few 3rd party titles as well

This is hardly surprising, they always were hardassed about emulation.

What did surprise me is the super old fashioned way you were doing it. You'd have to have a super tiny HD to not do the complete rom set thing, which I imagine will be harder to find now.

If anything, they should put the Bela Lugosi look in Symphony of the Night.

Still, you'd think that if anyone would know how to get a game running smoothly, it'd be the first party.

Personally, I'm just apathetic to the Switch in general. No more gimmicks, damnit... Then there's the warping, scratching, and other issues some people seem to have.

Hmm... I'd say Street Fighter II has some stiff competition in that department between Streets of Rage 2 and Elevator Action Returns

Final Conflict( came out 11 months after CD. CD still has 2 exclusive scenarios though.

Sega CD:
Shining Force CD - remakes of the first 2 Game Gear games(so far, the only way to play the first in English). Being that they were on the GG, the town exploration aspect is gone, replaced with a small hub between battles, where you can buy things, save, promote, etc.

Dark Wizard - supposed to be another great SRPG, more traditional hexagon style strategy.

Final Fight CD - much better port than the other ones at the time.

The Terminator - is supposed to be a pretty good action platformer

Robo Aleste - shoot 'em up in the same series as M.U.S.H.A. and Space Megaforce

Eternal Champions: Challenge from the Dark Side - gorier sequel/remake(?), that's better in every other regard as well.

Dungeon Explorer - is it's own game here

In general:
If it has a game that's the same on the Genesis/SNES(which is already usually better on the Genesis if it has a port here), the SCD version is usually the best. It also has some point 'n click titles like The Secret of Monkey Island, The Adventures of Willy Beamish, or Rise of the Dragon, which I imagine should be of interest, to some degree, if Snatcher is.

Turbo/PC Engine CD:
Gates of Thunder, & Lords of Thunder - great, easier, shoot 'em ups

Godzilla - if you like the Super Famicom fighter, however the other monsters are only playable in vs. mode

Ys - the definitive versions of the games in the earlier portion of the series, though the fan translated IV is a different game than the SFC's fan translated IV.

Dungeon Explorer II - I believe this is what they ported to the SFC as Crystal Beans.

In General:
The Japanese version of the base console and it's add-on are known for their shoot 'em up library, so that's where you'll generally want to look. Ginga Fukei Densetsu Sapphire in particular is highly rated(and super expensive for collectors). The Dynastic Hero is a re-skin of Wonder Boy in Monster World. Exile is most likely the definitive version of that game, and Exile: Wicked Phenomenon is obviously it's sequel.

Plenty to explore, just depends on what you're looking to get out of gaming.

Streets of Rage 2 is about all the stress relief I need.

I had the DOS version of In Your House(btw, DOS ports of arcade games may be better than PS1, though Saturn is usually great for 2D ports) and I had no issue with it at all. I thought the common complaint was the random negative effect object(red WWF logo), which can actually be turned off to make the game more like it's predecessor.

^If it worked, check your messages.

Honestly, if I wanted to play it that badly myself, I'd just settle for Warsong.

The irony being that Nintendo has gone after the Game Genie, in hopes of courts seeing it as illegal.

Hmm... Well, I would think Sega should already have known how to bypass their own security, but then, they're not the same company they were by the time hey had to leave the hardware market, so it's likely they don't still have anyone from their old hardware division on staff...

For the record, I'm not sure how multi-system emulator cores work, but Yabause has improved a lot lately. It may just require bin/cue format, instead of mds/mdf.

It's entirely plausible that Nintendo might try to issue DMCA takedowns against for specific hacks, or send C&D notices to hack authors or something like that, but in the long run that's about as likely as it's always been - that is, not very.

There is virtually no chance of the entire site somehow getting shut down because of Nintendo. If it were that big of a legal issue, it probably would have come up already.

If that were to happen, the site would just become SegaHacking :P.

"What do I do if the Nintendo ship sinks?" Roast marshmallows over the flaming engine. >:D

Seriously, and I shouldn't have to say it here of all places, worst case scenario, there's always the classics.

Well, the company can't be blamed for what the internet is. This has been pretty successful for them, for what it is, so it'd be pretty stupid of them not to make improved updates going into the future.
