Best 8-bit game?

I'm talking about games along the lines of Superbrothers:S&S EP and League of Evil. The best games with 8-bit graphics. If you have any suggestions, please add them.

League of Evil, Super Crate Box, Canabalt, Stardash, Meganoid, Astronot, Random Heros, Manos, McPixel, Raptured, Organ Trail, Tower of Fortune, Forget Me Not, most anything from Jeff Minter my favs being SuperOxWars, Gridrunner and Mino Rescue. More would be, Firejumpers, Retro Racing, The Last Rocket, Flips Excape, 10000000, Bitless., Velocispider... and many more!!! Most are must haves, maybe skip Random Heros, Raptured, Firejumpers, and Flips Excape.... The rest you NEED!!!


Maybe these are more 16 bit then 8 bit but still scratch the retro itch would be all three Quick Hook games, 100 Rogues, Final Freeway 2, Unstoppable and I'm sure I'm missing a TON.
