I didn't really see an interesting thread I could reply on, so I decided to make one of my own instead.
My favorite throwback has got to be "Gex: Enter the Gecko" hands down. I wish they would make another sequel, despite Crystal Dynamics's only standing leg being to make Tomb Raider games now and if it isn't online, it wont hit big.
How about the new generation communities throwback?
