In short, my list is organized to ensure a reasonable breakdown of games considering the massive console and PC game library before 2000. I will do another list for modern gaming. The number of games in each system were selected based upon my overall reception of the system, and games that hold a high replay value for me. If I'm considering playing some Non-Arcade games, this is the list I select through and the games of its franchise. Before Mame Addicts, I had missed a few real gems on the Arcade, but in old console and PC gaming I have played just about everything from Base Wars on the NES to Blast Chamber on PSX (both on my side honorable mentions list for competitive gaming). Over time, I will post a brief review of games that made it on the list that, may be up for question for some.
