Top 12 "must demo" cartridges

BurgerTime was a pretty excellent port of the arcade game that showed off the system's sound and graphics.  (And it's the last cartridge I ever got BITD, so it's kind of extra nostalgic to me).  

I would agree, if it was not for that the music restarted after a sound effect rather than continued.  I love the game play, but I have to play with no sound because that irritates me so.

are you concerned about cartridges walking off? would a Final GROM fit the bill or add too much complication?

Too much complication.  I want someone to walk up and instantly recognize the cartridges they played as a kid.  Even pick them up and touch the past.  I have two FG99s, one of which gets used in the exhibit, so that would not be a problem.  I want people to experience time travel.


As for walking off, if I have dupes and can fill the gaps relatively inexpensively, I am not overly concerned.  I would be disappointed but not emotionally damaged.  Every year I exhibit I raise the probability that something will go missing.  It is not a perfect world.
