Hi All

Well, a search for "favorites" and "faves" didn't bring up much, so I thought I'd ask...Was just wondering what games people are enjoying lately, and was hoping someone might share some ideas for new games to try. I was a Sega arcade freak back in the day. Used to make little animations on my Amiga, trying to do my own "Space Harrier" emulation...haha (you had to love Deluxe Paint III with that scaling). Anyway, here's a list of my all-time faves...how bout yours?

720 Degrees
After Burner II
Altered Beast
APB
Bad Dudes
Choplifter
Double Dragon
Elevator Action
Galaga
Gauntlet
Ghouls n Ghosts
Golden Axe
Hydra
Karate Champ
Kung-Fu Master
Mad Planets (I had forgotten this one, loaded by mistake recently, very fun and addictive!)
Major Havoc
NARC
Out Run
Paperboy
Pole Position II
Qix
Road Blasters
Rolling Thunder
Shinobi
Smash TV
Space Harrier
Star Wars
Super Hang-On
The Legend of Kage
Tron

Yeah, I finally tripped upon your classics page with SWAT about 3 months after I finally found it myself. Coulda saved about 2 years of searching... frown

And, why you doggin' on Kickman, Nathan? My dad and I used to play that together at Aladdin's Castle (only game he'd play with me - video games were a waste of quarters...). The frantic pace on a real machine with the big 2-way trackball was actually a blast! Got my adrenaline going big time!

Lately, I've really been into....
Space Invaders
the Marvel/Capcom games
Discs Of Tron
PacMan(and Ms. Pacman)
Ghouls N' Ghosts
Ghosts N' Goblins
Quiz & Dragons(I used to spend hours playing this at 7-11)
Dig Dug
Centepede
Gauntlet
Rampage
Burger Time
Donkey Kong

Playing the games that I used to love when I was a kid is really awesome and brings back a lot of great feelings. It's really too bad that there aren't too many arcades like when we were little. What with all the XBoxs, Gamecubes, Nintendo DS, and PSPs, people don't really have to go out to play games anymore. The arcades that ARE still left, usually only have really old, crappy games that no one really wants to play anymore(or never did) or games that people DO want to play but most of which are out of order. Too bad. I really loved going to arcades when I was younger. The sounds of the bells, alarms, games, and people yelling and laughing, etc. The really horrible, garish carpet, the blinking/neon lights made you feel so great.


Think about this. Once bread becomes toast, you can't make it back into bread.
