1. (1) Chrono Trigger vs. (9) Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow 2. (4) Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney vs. (5) Resident Evil (REmake)
3. (2) Mega Man 2 vs. (10) Street Fighter II: Turbo 4. (14) Super Castlevania 4 vs. (6) Shovel Knight
1. I haven't played that Castlevania game, but there isn't much that would beat out Chrono Trigger. 2. Never played either, chose the one that looked more interesting. Though I did watch my brother play Resident Evil back in the day; not a game I would want to play myself but it can be entertaining to watch.
3. I'd choose just about anything over an SF II game, though I actually liked MM2. 4. Never played either, chose the one that looks more interesting.
