But Doom on XBLA has all 4 eps and doesn't use GL features. It doesn't include Doom 2 but hopefully we'll get Doom 2 on XBLA soon as well.

Smash TV does have unlimited credits.
Yeah, Smash TV with a lot less pressure. I never saw the second level before, incredibly difficult game. Worms is well worth the download for 4 player matches on XBL

With Blu-ray they can make the game long as ****
use uncompressed music
2D, just like everything else, benefits from HD resolutions
all of the high precision post-processing they could use

Why not make it the best it can be? I think that the console makers should reduce royalty fees for 2D games, and then it won't be as big of a risk for 3rd parties to make a 2D game on a console.

It shouldn't be a risk though anyway (it is, but it shouldn't), b/c 2D games could be so much better on consoles.

I'll be so pissed if Sega+Ancient makes another Oasis game, only to be on the D****.
i dont understand your obsession with 2D games. consoles today arent for you. you need to go get an NES, genesis, and an SNES and play your heart out. no one cares about 2D anymore.

2D gaming had some of the best games of all time. Games from that era really put to shame the crap that is coming out today (with a few noteable exception). Who doesn't love going back and playing a few rounds of Mario World?

i dont deny their greatness. they stir up a certain sense of nostalgia for me and i really enjoy them. i just dont really see current gamers/kids enjoying 2D games today, cause as you said Zelda, the older 2D games would put them to shame.

Just grabbed Castlevania on XBLA. I remember playing it on the PS1 vaguely, but this is a classic game indeed. I was going to buy the TMNT '89 arcade game but it just didn't feel right to me, controls wise. Anywho, SOTN is a great buy for $10.
