Every gamer has a few big-name games missing from their encyclopedia of video game experiences, and we at Gamnesia are no different. That’s why we thought it’d be fun to go over some of our lists of must-play games that we haven’t had the pleasure of experiencing, and then shaming the heck out of each other for it, on
this week’s episode of Nintendo Week. Alex, Ben, and I all made short lists of Nintendo games that we’d either never played or hadn’t played more than an hour or two into—which isn’t enough time to truly experience them. Keep reading to see our lists, and check out the discussion video above for some good discussion and even better laughs about the games themselves, why we haven’t played them, and even what you might be missing out on.

Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: http://youtube.com/user/pokemoneinstein I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
