Games of . . . niche franchises or just unique . . . Magical Starsign, Fossil Fighters, Mario Pinball Land/Metroid Prime Pinball, Master of Illusion, ExciteBots.
After writing all this, I know that not all these games will have cameos, and that most of this games come from the DS onwards. I'm not saying to list down all the games you have or haven't played (unless we find some sort of "make your own check list website thingy")
I've been playing through as many Japanese games as I can, which is how I managed to expand on the cameos in Yuuyuuki and Heisei: Shin Onigashima. And then I had someone send me the N64 cameo in the SFC version of Famicom Detective Club Part II.
I've also played quite a way through X and For the Frog the Bell Tolls.
I also bought most of the Art Style games, including Zengage.
However, there are a lot of Japan-only DSiWare games, and I know some of them have cameos, but until I get the game pages online I haven't got anywhere to put them.
I still have a handful of adventure games to get through, including the Famicom Detective Club games, Time Twist, Forest of Beginnings... then there's Marvelous, which seems to have compatibility problems with emulators...
Any of the Custom Robo games, up to the GameCube version... most Japan only RPGs. Hell, there's loads of games that haven't been scoured! ;D

Japan-only games are... well, some are quite unplayed by us, others aren't. Still, not counting emulation, I've played only a few of those.
I'm not big in text adventures, so naturally I didn't touch most of them, with the exception of Famicom Detective Club II, which you can't possibly lose (in the literal sense, no one ever thought about physically harming the teen detective for some reason) and a very small bit of Shin Onigashima Zenpen and Metal Slader Glory.
I seriously think if we put all NinDB regulars here, we can actually cover most of the games... well, most. Not all. I don't think any of us will get that English revision tool, for example.
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.

nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
