As lame as it sounds, this was probably my favorite part of the Direct. SO hyped to dive back into these games! I haven't had a chance to play these games in decades, and there's so many in these collections that I've missed!

There are TONS of GB/GBC/GBA games so they hopefully won’t drip feed these slowly.

It seem like they realized that they'll run out of N64 games VERY soon.

Also: Alone in the Dark is the only game I haven't played yet.
