15. NiGHTS

First Release: NiGHTS into DREAMS... (1996, Sega Saturn)
Last Release: NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams (2007, Wii)

Yeah, we hear what you're saying: There was a Wii rendition of this beloved franchise. But as far as we're concerned, that game never existed. Something about it just felt wrong. But when it hit the Saturn... we fell in love. Gifted with the ability of free form flight, you could do the prettiest loop de loops with your swagged out Nightmaren.

The graphics were beautiful, the music was calming and the character design was appealing. Ever since we saw what good developers could do with the Kinect (Child of Eden, people), we thought this series would turn out great with Microsoft's fancy doo-dad.

We don't know how Sega and its Sonic Team could replicate the complete NiGHTS experience sans controller, but we trust they can find a way. So what if we want to explore our dreams again. There won't be pills this time.
