I'd like to nominate Ninja Spirit.  It's a platformer for the TG-16 meaning it's perfect because no one's ever played it before.  ;D  It's fairly similar to Ninja Gaiden, but much more playable from what I hear (read:  it doesn't have a batshit insane difficulty level).

It has been recommended by Jeremy Parish as well as our own Steven Rodriguez.

Fun fact:  It was the first game to ever receive a perfect 10 from EGM.
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

Beyond Good & Evil
Mega Man 3

Ohh! That's a good one to do. I played it last year and would love to go through it again. I second that one!

Also, I'd like to nominate the following:
Donkey Kong Land (GB)
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (GB/C)
Super Star Wars (SNES)
Aladdin (SNES)
Star Fox (SNES)
Star Fox Command (DS)
Turok: Dinosaur Hunter (N64)
Super Turrican (SNES)
Kirby 64 (N64)
Comix Zone (MD)

And I was just thinking. Would it be possible to -only once in a while- choose a new game coming out soon to go through together that we all agree to pick up at launch? That might be interesting.

Okay if this feature is going to have both new and old games, then Donkey Kong Jungle Beat needs to be nominated. Not that I need an excuse to play it, I just think everyone should play it  and play it as much as I do.

Also Rock n Roll Racing (the only good game Blizzard ever made), which has been on Genesis/MegaDrive, SNES and GBA.

Good excuse for us all to play online together, right? Experience the full game as it was intended?  ;)

I know it's been played by just about everyone who calls themselves a Nintendo gamer, it's on the VC, and IMO it is the best Mario game (even better than SMB3): Super Mario World.

DoReMi Fantasy: Milon's DokiDoki Adventure   Likely not a great deal of people would have played this one.

I like the suggestions of DoReMi and Hulk: Ultimate Destruction.  ;-)  I think I still have the latter on an NR Reader disc for my teal GameCube.

Hulk: Ultimate Destruction was probably the greatest rental I ever had. Please let it win so I have an excuse to buy it.

This is quickly going to turn into a huge list of random old games.

If you're truly passionate about your selection write a brief summary explaining why it would make a good choice!
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

...aww man!
I told myself that barring any unforeseen event that prevents it I would acquire and play every game we picked for the RetroActive even if I have to grab it later to 'retroactively' play along. But I will stick to my guns and play Superman 64 if I can get a copy at a good price. But that doesn't mean I have to vote for it... :P

i own the game and its a blast to occasionally pick it up and destroy crap. You got to use a controller with rumble, this game really feels empty without it.

Superman 64. All I see reading that title is "pain."

Come on . We shouldn't torture the RFN staff. A bad game is one thing but a universally hated game is just not the job of them. Let Angry Video Game Nerd do that.
