- This contained a heavy copy protection algorithm which was not broken until 7 years after the system’s release in 1993.
- The original crack by the CPS2Shock Team was not a true emulation of the protection because it used XOR tables to bypass the original encryption and allow the game to play in an emulator.
- SNK also employed a method of copy prevention on their Neo Geo games, starting with The King of Fighters in 1999, which used an encryption algorithm on the graphics ROMs to prevent them from being played in an emulator.

X was the first — though certainly not the last — reinvention of Mega Man. It somehow managed to build upon the brilliant Atari Lynx ROM games foundation of the original, and for that alone it more than deserves a spot on this list. The only entry in the Mother series to see a North American release, EarthBound was met with poor sales in the U.S. However, its hilarious commentary on American culture, psychedelic premise, and unique take on the RPG genre instantly cemented it as a cult classic.

The rise of the Sinistrals, of course, a group of villainous would-be gods who appear suddenly on the planet and challenge any of the world’s warriors to try to oppose them. This game had it all – bright graphics that perfectly captured the look and personality of the classic cartoon, a cool Mode 7-utilizing throw attack that let you toss enemies into the screen and, best of all, time travel. Seeing Leo, Raph, Don and Mikey warp through history and pop up in the age of the dinosaurs, the wild west and the far-flung future was even more epic and awesome than we could have imagined.
