So what are your guys all-time favorite arcade games?
A few of mine:
This was the forerunner of the "train" shooters. Graphics were pretty sophisticaed for the time, but the animation was rather poor.
This was the point where the "train" shooter really matured. Awesome graphics, intense, and very fun. Managed to beat it once or twice, mainly by
"poaching" someone else's game that they quitted towards the last area.
Time Crisis 1. I played this at Cedar Point, which had a big screen version. Incredibly fun, and the big screen almost made if feel a little too close
Soul Caliber 2
The only reason I played SC was the Capaign mode, that was pretty fun. I played as Astaroth and named myself "OJ SIMPSON." There were some other odd
characters, including a few of the local DDR Players such as "HARVEY", "JEW", and "FUNNELCAKE" and even odder ones such as "HOMOGAY."
Dance Dance Revolution Extreme (8th Mix)
The last Japanese arcade mix. Over 180 songs. Needed more stuff from the first few mixes such as Boom Boom Dollar (KOG G3 Mix). Omitting those were
Beatmania III Core Append 7th Mix
Beatmania III. I drove over 150 miles to play this game. It was so worth it. Standard five-key Beatmania with an effector pedal to boot. Performed a
few songs that were crossed over into DDR such as "321 Stars" and "Genom Screams" (the latter being HARD AS @#$#@$.)
Wow, this one was awesome! Old-school polygon graphics combat flight sim. Very neat game.
