9. Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds
NES version kicked so much ass compared to the Muppet Babies kids' games. Konami's 1991 title launched the whole Tiny Toons videogame series, and its multiple playable characters had unique abilities (Buster Bunny's Sonic-esque momentum, Dizzy Devil's Taz-style spin move, etc.) help set the gameplay apart from other sidescrolling games on the market at the time. But perhaps most importantly - it contained a Star Wars parody (facing off against Duck Vader) back in the days when that sort of thing was considered fresh and original.
WWE Raw 2 for Xbox does a better job of everything the previous TV entertainment game did by adding a season mode, along with Hell in a Cell matches and Tables, Ladders, and Chairs matches. Most importantly,
Raw 2 offers a strong Create A Superstar system, because pretending to be The Rock will never be as fun as pretending to be kicking The Rock's ass at Royal Rumble. Memo to CM Punk: get some mental escape through this game since Sunday's main event didn't go your way.
6. SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom
