Ideally, it would be nice if Sega and Namco and everybody else just copied Game Room to death and put out a compilation of games of their own that had a virtual arcade and challenges and medals and all the other Game Room things and other cool features. I wouldn't mind if it was a standalone disc at full retail price or a digital sales model like Game Room. Namco could just lift all the games off their Virtual Museum compilation and I'd be a happy boy.
Lots of things about Game Room really work. Even the game sales can't be that bad, it was in the top ten lists for XBLA for months on end.
The one time you want the game industry to get cloning and it lets you down by totally ignoring a good idea that could be easily improved.
These Sega packs are a good thing but what a missed opportunity it all feels like to me.
