It's remarkable how many games     Pedro    and I like and played as kids.  He even chose     Wii Party    on the same Radio Trivia that I requested it!  I guess the fact that I was born in     Puerto Rico    probably shaped my tastes in games as well.

Nice work TYP (and Jonny) on another great episode! I really appreciate the efforts getting these out despite the busy schedule. I always enjoy listening to the music and the commentary.

Game 1 has an amazing soundtrack. I was glad you guys mentioned the official soundtrack and its unique title (PPPPPP) as well. It's a soundtrack I listen to almost every day on my MP3 player!

I was a bit proud of myself for being able to recognize Game 2 (well, I knew it was either the first or second title in the series!). I thought the Sonic Advance series was good but not as great as the Genesis titles. In my mind, it's been tough for Sega to top their original trilogy of Sonic 2D goodness, though I did like Sonic Rush a lot.

I'm disappointed in myself for not having played Games 3 or 4, but I plan to do so!

I was surprised I could actually guess what Game 5 was! I think I only rented Batman Returns one time back in the day when it was still new, but even that brief play time was enough for me to remember it vividly to this day. Konami SNES games were some of the best on the system, even when they were 'just brawlers.' Oh, and perhaps and it was my passion for the franchise that had something to do with it.

Now there's yet another reason for me to be aggrieved about the fact that Game 4 will never be released this side of the Atlantic. At least I can take solace in Game 1's bang-up tunes.

EPISODE SPOILERS BELOW.  I'LL BLACK OUT THE GAME BUT THERE'S PLENTY OF CONTEXT CLUES FOR GUESSING WHAT THE GAME IS!

Oh man, hearing the music from the game I requested always brings back a flood of memories.  I remember when I was 5, my mom and brother coming home from the mall with a Super Mario World-packed-in SNES and Pilotwings.  I loved playing it, but the physics of the game were a little much for my 5-year-old brain to grasp in any nuanced way, but I really loved watching my brother play.  For hours.  And hours.  I'll never forget the music and look of utter disappointment on the face Big Al, the final instructor in the game, when he would fail the incredibly difficult last hang-glider section.  I love the music from the final level of the game, the first selection played in the episode, and the quirky voice synthesizing in the game is fantastic.


Thanks for picking this game TYP!

After all many times game 1 has been discussed on RFN and this show, I've remained kind of disinterested in it.  The music and the following discussion sold me on finally giving it a try.  The soundtrack is amazing!  I was running while listening to this episode, and it actually had a positive effect on my pace! :)

I've also been on the fence about game 4, but I can see myself attempting to obtain a copy now that it can be acquired on Amazon for between $15 - $20.

Thanks for the great show, guys!  I think this has been one of my favorite episodes so far!

Thanks again for using my request, it was another great episode, but what episode of radio trivia isn't great. This is one of my favorite podcasts along with RFN. I constantly listen to other episodes over and over again just to here the music. Many times I go play the game and come back to the episode they were used in and hear it discuss and can relate now that I have played the game. Awesome work and I can't wait for the next episode.

VVVVVV! Unfortunately, PPPPPP is actually more expensive than the game!

Another fun show !  Thanks, guys!

Man, I love Trauma Center's soundtrack more than I would have thought. It didn't stick with me after playing the game, I guess.

It's the only game in this episode I was able to guess. I drew a blank after the first song, but the first few notes in the second track clued me in.

Awesome, awesome game.
