    Wow thank you! I really don't now what else to say. I greatly appreciate your review and thoroughness. 
    I am working on a new variant with a micro-switch that will allow you to switch button modes - so both buttons when pressed will act like port 2 button fire 1 - so you can use it to play spy hunter,  star gate and raiders of the lost ark - etc. there is an updated video here to show the example:
    Thanks again

    Your list is great.  I'd put "Centipede" a bit higher for one reason:  the two player co-op mode.  Asteroids has this same feature, and it makes an awesome game even better.  
    Another of my favorite 7800 games is the Dr J/Larry Bird One on One.  I absolutely LOVED this game on the Atari 8-bit computers and played it to death.  It's amazing the control the designers gave each player using only a stick and one button -- spins, dunks, jumpers, steals, jumps, checks.  The 7800 version plays exactly the same, but has much better graphics.  From your list, it's hard to find any game I'd replace with One on One, but I'd probably choose Choplifter.  Just because the 7800 Choplifter is worse than some of the earlier versions.  
    I really love Food Fight, and the 7800 version is absolutely the best home version of that great game.  
    I'd say the games that really show off the ability of the 7800 to move LOTS of sprites quickly are Asteroids and Food Fight.
    Great post, K -- I really enjoyed reading your thoughts.  Thanks!

    Awesome re-creation!  And I agree with you on T1 being the best of the series by far.

    Here's a nice storm we had roll in off the water in November. It was afternoon with a bit of lightning but it sure looked ominous. Photo taken with Huji.

    Do not apologize, man.  Life and feelings are complicated things.  Sounds like you had a difficult childhood.  But your kindness and decency is fully intact. 

    It's said that sometimes, it's good to have these type of people in our lives to learn how NOT to be.

    The 5200 version is great, and 4th place is nothing to sneeze at.  Give the top 3 a play if you get the chance...they are excellent!  The ColecoVision version will blow you away.

    Doom would be great.  It would be interesting to compare to the PS1 and N64 versions, or even the 32X.

    @rick - The FPS games on the Jaguar were Doom, Wolfenstein 3D and Alien Vs. Predator. I'll put Doom in the hat unless you would rather see a write up of one of the other two.

    I don't have any suggestions because I'm not familiar at all with the Jaguar line-up.  Are there games that also were made for the other systems of the day?  Like Doom or Quake?  If yes, I vote for one of those.
