You can’t go wrong with anything listed above with the possible exception of Lords of Shadow 2. Also, anyone with an appreciation for gaming history should pick up something in the NAMCO Museum collection, because they’re some of the best retro collections ever made. They’ve got fully-explorable museum sections, and while the early, low-budget PS1 3D may not have aged well, things like that always add a layer of authenticity to retro collections. You also get a lot of art and information on the games themselves, and will at least find a few games that you didn’t know about beforehand (but wind up getting hooked on). Toy Pop had that effect on me with the first installment.
