Mappy, Space Firebird, and Warrior didn't cut it. -6

Star Trek I omitted. Going to have to squeeze it in somehow. +10

The other 6 are correct. Net is 10.

And while BeeJay is looking pretty good at this point, there are still almost half the original list left to be identified, so even someone who hasn't started yet (or is negative) could, even without striking upon one that I need to get in, overcome the deficit to win.

Major Havoc, 1942, Punch Out, and Warlords didn't make it. -8

The others did. Net is -4.

Also, by now most of you may have noticed that the list in the original post is in alphabetical order. As we continue this should be a big hint as to the remaining game titles.

Not Dragon's Lair. -2 Maybe I'm prejudiced against it because it was a laser disc game and I sort of consider it a different animal.

The others are correct. Net is 2.

6 out of 6.

Also I notice that I have #26 out of alphabetical order. It should have been in between #22 and #23.
