I want to play the two Metal Slug games but 60% of this collection are fighting games that I know I won't enjoy  :(

Emulate the handheld and enjoy the few good games it has.

That makes it sound like the fighting games aren't good. There's certainly an overly abundant amount of them on the system and they're not everyone's cup of tea (as is the case with Telly), but for me the NGPC has like a 90% good to bad game ratio. Granted that's my singular opinion and that opinion is probably skewed because when the system first came out I was all-in.  :P

You're not wrong though, emulation is the way to go if you wanna cut through all the stuff you don't like. If I recall, there is a pretty decent NGPC emulator out there.

It's hot garbage compared to neo turf masters on the console/arcade

It's not a bad game on handheld but it's definitely not a highlight of the pocket's library.

I like arcade esk golf games aswell. but they are rarely any good/ give an interesting experience in wich they are worth it to pickup on a handheld device.

Arcade esk golf games definitely need them visuals, presentation and music to accompany it's gameplay
They can't just stand on gameplay alone while everything else isn't that great. handhelds don't deliver with golf games.

I actually prefer golf games that have an analog joystick or mouse swing, like the Tiger Woods PS2-PS3-Xbox-Xbox360 games, or Links 2004 for the original Xbox. I really don't like the golf games where you need to press 3 times to calculate your swing with a status bar.

the tru-swing or analog swing is miles better than the traditional golf game swing. So I don't think I'd like Big Tournament Golf lol, it's just funny that this game was included in with a bunch of fighting shoot-em-up and 1 RPG, I mean they could have used a FPS right?

Erm...the NGPC library is not even 50 US titles and NONE of them are a FPS.  ::)

They did overdo it on VS Fighters with this volume and it doesn't really leave much meat on the bone for a V2. Games like Crush Roller and Pocket Tennis Color are NOT going to move units and I doubt Nintendo will let them put the casino games on there.

That's subjective I'd say normal simulation golf games are really boring for my taste.

Same debate as soccer simulators vs faster paced arcade soccer games or pretty much with any sport sim vs the arcade aproach really.

aside from the faster paced gameplay the visuals and music are less extreme and fun in the sims it's not as exciting because it's supposed to be realistc.

Golfing in real life and midget golf are fun though just not so much if where talking simulators in games.

Different styles of games at the end of the day arcade sports games vs simulators

The Tiger Woods games for the 6th console generation and later, do have a few arcade modes like speed golf and target golf, Speed golf is where you run through the golf course in first person view and try to hit the ball a fast as possible, but it's better played with a friend unless you don't mind the computer kicking rear.

That makes it sound like the fighting games aren't good. [...]

Unless it's because I quoted telly, nowhere in my post did I try to discredit fighting games. I think the genre has some fun titles on NGPC, but quite frankly, I'm not particularly a big fan of fighting games on handheld consoles. Granted, I'm more of a spectator when it comes to fighting games, but still, having giant hands doesn't particularly help me when holding a controller when playing fighting games, so a handheld would be disastrous.

They did overdo it on VS Fighters with this volume and it doesn't really leave much meat on the bone for a V2. Games like Crush Roller and Pocket Tennis Color are NOT going to move units and I doubt Nintendo will let them put the casino games on there.

Unless they've been working things out in order to localize games like Faselei!, Cotton, Evolution: Eternal Dungeons, Rockman Battle & Fighters, and Legend of Ogre Battle Gaiden, to name a few, I don't see a Vol. 2 happening. Aside from Card Fighters, Biomotor Unitron, Magical Drop Pocket, and Sonic Pocket Adventure, and maybe Dive Alert, what's left are pretty much scraps.

As always, though, I don't mind being proven wrong.

Oh I know, that's why said it sounded like, not that it actually was the case. I somewhat try to pick my words carefully but even then, context can be killer regardless.  ;)

Faselei! got a US release (albeit as cart only in those blister packs). Evolution and Cotton have the EU releases so no additional need to localize those though the latter two would need that treatment. I too would like to see another collection released and hope that Volume 1 isn't a wasted moniker.  :)
