I can tell that this list is pretty good, though I know it's not on the front page. But what do you guys think otherwise?

So this is the last we've all been waiting for, eh?

Well done. This was a great read.

This topic is the long-awaited sequel topic to https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/2000445-top-10-lists/76361785 and https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/2000445-top-10-lists/75863618 .
This has been exactly like waiting for Avengers 4.

EDIT: Wonderful to read. Thanks. Even the entry full of natter was fun and has been looking forward to this list's sequel, Top 10 Kangaroos in gaming. Let's see... we got Roger(s) from the Tekken series... and, uh, are there Winnie the Pooh games?

EDIT 2: Dammit, Xoneris in 2012! https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/top10/2417-the-top-10-kangaroos-in-games

I'm sure it'll be on the front page within the next few days.

Yeah, I'm dreading the inevitable mass of replies complaining, "It took you over six months to write the thing, and this is all there is?!" To which I'll reply, "It didn't take me six months to write the list... that only took 5-6 hours or so. All the rest was just procrastination." XD

Waiting for Avengers 4? What about Half-life 3? ._.
Oh hey, Xoneris even compares that Kangaroo game to Donkey Kong. Interesting. I don't think that the intro to Oracle of Ages/Seasons actually shows that that Link is the same one from OoT, though, just because he's riding a horse. I always figured it was the same link from ALttP/Link's Awakening, but that's probably just headcanon.

So, looking back at my submitted top ten lists, I notice that I submitted several lists in 2008, one in 2013, and one in 2018. It's been 10 years since I started writing lists, and 5 years since my last one. But fear not! I won't wait another 5 years to write another one. In fact, I've already got my next one planned. More on that later. ~_^

Very informative and entertaining.

I thought WinBee from TwinBee might have an entry, but hey, Ninja Princess made it! Woohoo! Did you know that when you got an extra life on Choplifter in the arcades, the Ninja Princess would appear onscreen?

Personal RPG bias means I'm sad Alis Landale is all the way down at #9 (she's a personal #1 for me and I was hoping for a top-three showing), but all things considered, I'm at least glad she's on there.

Also, Tower of Druaga was given an homage in Tales of Destiny, as the game has an optional dungeon named after it and very heavily inspired by it.

Still, a nice list, even if the fact that many games back then never came West means I don't know most of these people, heh.

You did it. Congrats. Huzzah. A winner is you. Etc.

Seriously, nice job on finally getting this together. I know that these things take a lot of time, so it's nice to see the hard work finally come through.

Don't forget that the list is ranked solely on release date.

Oh, cool! I've only played Tales of Destiny a little bit, never got very far in it. I mentioned Baten Kaitos because I'm playing that right now (just got to the final dungeon!).

I thought that TwinBee was a game where you controlled spaceships... do those normally have gender? (I've never played it lol)
No, I didn't know that; that would have been an interesting tidbit to put in the "legacy" heading for that entry. Oh well.

Ah, I must have missed that.

Yeah. I remember that accessing it involves finding three crystal rods hidden throughout the main game, and taking them to the place where the entrance is. And I heard those crystal rods were themselves one of the many references to the original.

Destiny remains one of my favorite Tales games (second best, ahead of Graces and just behind Abyss). I'm deeply disappointed they didn't give it the HD remaster treatment (there was a PS2 remake of it in Japan only, as well as a direct sequel - I would have loved seeing them remastered and localized).

And, amusingly, Tales of Destiny and Tower of Druaga share initials. At least in English.
