A few suggestions for upcoming video collaborations: 1 - Favorite code/most useful (i.e. Contra 30 lives) in a single game. 2 - One feature in a video game that totally destroyed what could have been an awesome game (i.e. Battletoads had an issue with this with 2 players, I can't remember it exactly atm). 3 - Best graphics you have ever seen for a game on that console (i.e. Batman Return of the Joker on NES or Super Mario World 2 on SNES). 4 - A game that pushed the system to the limit (i.e. Street Fighter Alpha 2 on SNES). 5 - A game that you were really looking forward to but turned out to be incredibly disappointing after it came out (i.e. Double Dragon on NES with its pathetic heart system and 1 player only, or X-Men vs. Street Fighter on PSX where you can't tag in the 2nd partner and there is a lot of slowdown and missing animation frames which ruins the intense gameplay).

As was inevitable, word is that the industry is likely going to be moving towards a digital-only download direction in the next console generation or two. This means that you can only download a game onto your new video game system instead of buying it at the store. The video game system is not going to have a disc drive or some kind of cartridge reader. This obviously has many advantages such as cutting out any distributor, not paying for any physical media itself, the shipping costs, store returns, etc. I am just wondering though, what about people who do not have internet access at speeds that lets them download the games? Game sizes are only going to increase. The bigger question is, does this really make sense for the industry or a specific console maker? Sense as in profit-wise. I actually know homes in which kids and adults live where there is no computer. Sure they have cellphones but no computer or internet BUT they DO have video game consoles at the same time. Removing this segment of the consumer base would hurt companies' pockets I'd say...but enough to offset the costs of what it takes to sell to them?
