    Can anyone provide me with a list of war related games on the old consoles?

    I'm just basically after platformers, etc.

    All war related though.

    All of the Contra games
    Blood Wolf (TG16) is a similiar style game
    Silent Debuggers (kind of)
    Metal Slug (I've only played the arcade slugs, but I'm sure the console ports are awesome)

    All except the metal slug series are on VC, there's a bunch of slug games on a bunch of machines (PS2, Gamecube, advance, etc. etc.), and the metal slug anthology is out on the wii and includes all 7 of the classic games. (Though the controls are kind of wonky...)

    Yeah, Operation Wolf was a great game.

    I was planning on getting Blood Wolf on the VC at some point.

    Any others?

    Preferably on the SNES of Megadrive... or even the 64?
