What is/are your favourite ARCADE game(s), but...?
« on: May 12, 2004, 01:32:16 PM »
Hoya!

The topic says it all, EXCEPT that I am not talking about new 3D stuff but rather 70's, 80's and early 90's bitmap champs!

Here I go:

Carnival/Sega (the VERY first video game I played, I was 5! :-D )
R-Type/Irem
Out Run/Sega
Double Dragon/Jaleco (err, I have a doubt?)
DragonNinja/Data East Japan
Hammerin' Harry/Irem
UFO Robo Dangar/Nishibutsu
Terra Force/Nishibutsu
Commando/Capcom
1941-1942-1943/Capcom
Raiden/Nishibutsu (I think)
Shinobi/Sega
Chelnov Atomic Runner/Data East?
Rygar/Namco?
PacMan/Namco
RoboCop/Data East...
Street Fighter/Capcom
Final Fight/Capcom

OK, I have others in mind but I will let you have a go first! ;-)

Off the top of my head...

Operation Wolf
Space Gun
Puzzle Bobble / Bust-a-Move
Columns
Guerilla War
Chase HQ

[I reckon if I played some of them now I'd find them naff..]

My fave at the moment is Time Crisis 3, but that's not a 'classic' coin-op
I like Amigas

All time favourite: 1942

Shinobi was also cool, but i think i recall it being an awfully short playtime on that one...

UFO Robo Dangar/Nishibutsu



Bless you.

Seriously though I've always preferred playing games on computers / consoles to arcades.  There's more of a need for depth of gameplay, as you don't run out of 50 pence coins to keep feeding an Amiga... ;-D

Fave arcades are as follows:

Outrun - Sega

Unbeatable for a sense of occasion.  The soundtrack, the novelty of the hydraulic cabinet and the adolescent desire to drive fast to impress a female passenger.  Shame the game featured a butt-ugly Testarossa though, had it been the prettier 328 or maybe a Berlinetta Boxer it would have been nigh on perfect!

GTI Club - unknown

Driving either a Golf GTi or Mini Cooper (among others) around Monaco flat out, in the style of the Italian Job was a serious buzz, particularly as I owned my own Golf GTi at the time!  

Virtua Racing - Sega

Actually put you in the driving seat of an F1 car.  Playing against mates was the big attraction.

Operation Wolf - Taito

Solely for the purpose of gratuitous use of an Uzi 9mm!

Marble Madness!

There are others that I enjoy, but that's THE favourite game for me.

I like Atari System 1 games a lot, for some reason..

My 2 all time favs:

Gauntlet (Atari)
APB (Atari)

I think these are system 2 games, but yes Atari was the king of games back then.

Other games that I REALLY dug:

Tempest (Atari)
Street Fighter 2 (Capcom) - before it became hyper turbo mega street fighter ex
NFL Blitz & NBA Jam
All the laser disc games - Dragon's Lair 1 & 2, Space Ace, etc.  Yes, I LIKED those :)

Hi,

Only after the last river has been poisoned,
Only after the last fish has been caught,
Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.

Frontier Elite II. It has to be.

I have wads of star system info for the first galaxy, and I classify myself as pretty much having beaten the game due to eventually getting hold of a galaxy drive that let me change Galaxy as though I was merely changing star system! :-)
