    Skullgirls? There's also been some Guilty Gear for the PC, Melty Blood and probably five billion other doujin fighters normal people never even heard of.

    I'm fairly sure they're designed with arcade layout in mind, and when they come to consoles... well then they get played with a pad because it's not like you've got a choice.

    I know one thing - if you have four directional buttons then you're much better off with having three fingers on four of them at any given time(keyboard's directional keys approach) rather than trying to operate all four with just one finger(dpad). Especially when that one fingers is your thumb.

    I'm not arguing against your use of the term, just the term itself. But, it is what it is so it's the right term to use, I guess. I'm just sour because Castlevania got billing rights simply for releasing a game in that style. Imagine if instead of the term FPS, we used Wolfenukems because hey, Duke Nukem was one of those.

    Actually, now that I think about it, I vote for Wolfenukems. It's fun to say.

    Well, we used to say "doom clones"...

    Problem is, what do you call metroidvania if you don't call it metroidvania?

    Thanks. Since Guilty Gear and Melty Blood aren't easily purchased (I could be wrong here) I won't put it up just yet.

    2d exploration and equipment based platformers.

    Another genre definition argument?
    We're becoming a parody of ourselves.

    3D exploration and equipment based platformers. I prefer metroidvania.

    I say consoles are under represented when it comes to realistic racing games.

    - Live for Speed
    - netKar Pro
    - Richard Burns Rally
    - Offroad Drive
    - GTR
    - Rfactor

    [Dirt, Grid, Project Cars, F1 don't belong here]

    I just bought MX Simulator last week. Somehow never discovered it before. Yes the price is high.

    arn't the NFS: Shift games reasonably good racing sims? The default is to have most of the driving assists on, but you can turn them off through in-game options. I could be wrong, but I think the developers of Shift/Shift 2 are also the guys that are now making project cars.

    Dark/Demon's Souls are the best representation of the Metroidvania formula since its inception in 1994.

    Not sure what the list is in the OP: most of the games listed already exist on PC.
    In any case, there is Dead or Alive Online courtesy of a group of intrepid Russian gamers/server admins:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SuX6f0tapqs

    a bunch of PC games from underrepresented genres:
    BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger
    Rocket Knight
    Outrun 2006
    Dead or Alive Online
    Rare, but worth it: The German version of King Kong: The Game or King Kong: Gamer's Edition as it was known. Us PC gamers got shafted by Ubisoft when this game was launched: XBox360 got the next-gen port, we got the PS2 port!! For some obscure reason, only Germany later got a revised version which was basically a port of the xbox 360 version. It's called King Kong Gamer Edition I think. I managed to download it while it was still available. It's quite linear and heavily scripted, but the A.I can be surprising and there were some great gameplay innovations that went a long way in adding immersion to single player gameplay:

    As long as you buy the PS3 or Xbox360 ports, I guess it's fine to use the Taito X2 arcade apps? (no emulation here, these are windows programs)
    Recent Taito X2 games
    KoF XII
    KoF XIII
    Samurai Showdown Edge of Destiny
    BlazBlue Continuum Shift
    Power Instinct 5

    Emulation wise: the Wii, PS2, gamecube and Dreamcast are pretty much mature now. Everything before obviously has much better support with the exception of obscure consoles like the 3DO or FM Towns.
    Here's a video of me trying out games randomly from my library for 30 minutes to give you an idea of how well things run:

    BONUS:

    Check out this hilarious video where a guy is showing off his new Taito X2 Arcade system... booting into Windows XP (probably Windows CE) and running an arcade game by browsing to the game's folder in Windows Explorer!!!
    We have come full circle friends :)

    King Kong is indeed amazing, but it was made by Michel "Rayman/BGE" Ancel, that was to be expected. It's really immersive, it has barely no UI, perhaps some bits of text sometimes. It has the film's voice actors (Jack Black, Naomi Watts, Adrien Brody) and it's really standalone, it's not just the film's scenes recreated. You play as Jack and as Kong, and has so many little touches that is just incredible. Here is another video that shows it better. You can impale some big dragonflies and use them as bait.

    It's actually on GamersGate, and it's DRM Free, just make sure to backup the installation files. It's totally worth it and it runs well on Win7. The only problem is that is doesn't support widescreen at all, it stretches the picture.
    Steam(shots), Imgur, Flickr, Bak'laag, why do you forsake me?

    That's the crappy PS2 port. Th Gamers Edition has full widescreen support and actually much better graphics (to the point that some levels are different from the PS2 port)

    The taito games look neat, but I couldn't see anywhere to buy them.
    The king kong game does look cool.

    *cough* you have to 'acquire' them *cough*

    I've 'acquired' KoF XIII for my PC, but purchased the PS3 port in order to assuage my guilt towards the devs - SNK Playmore.

    3D platformers are by far what we have the least of on PC.
