2007 marks the 20th anniversary for The Legend of Zelda, Mega Man, Castlevania, Final Fantasy and Metroid. All of those franchises got their start on the NES back in 1987 (Final Fantasy didn't make it to North America until 1990, but it was originally released in 1987 in Japan). Two other great games that came out that year, but didn't become a long living franchise like those others: Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! and Kid Icarus. Man, 1987 was quite a year for video games!

    That makes me feel old. But you're right, it was a great year for video games.

          there's a Megaman compilation already (two of them actually. one for the original series, and one for the X series). there's also a Zelda collection for the GC (Lacks Lttp, but still has OOT and MM)

                Not only should it have Sotn, but also Dracula X. I'm not talking about the Dracula X on the SNES (although that should be included too), But the TRUE Dracula X, that was released on the PC Engine over in Japan and never made it to North America. Yes, Dracula X is getting a graphical makeover and being released on the Sony PSP, but that's not good enough. Besides, I'd take the original 2D hand drawn graphic style of the game any day over the new 3D polygonal look.
