Outrun and Time Crisis for me
The games I spent the most time on at arcades and bars over the years...
Point Blank series
Time Crisis series
House of the Dead series
Metal Slug series
Terminator 2 Pinball
Addams Family Pinball - I would love to have one of these in the house... but they're now extremely expensive.
One holiday, I spent all my spare time in the arcade on Rampage. Played it again a few months ago, but it was dead boring
Another holiday, there was no arcade but they had a single cabinet that basically seemed to have a NES inside it. Can't really remember what games there were, think Punch Out was one.
Sounds like a PlayChoice-10
Pretty cool thing. Wouldn't mine having one, but I'd prefer a Nintendo red tent.
Three top hand picks right there! I loved it on super sidekicks when the ref got biffed.
Golden Axe. Jesus I spent way too much money on that damn game.
House of the Dead
Sega Rally / Daytona
Super Hang on (full bike version)
cruisin usa lol
Street Fighter II (And varients)
Super off Road
Thats the one's I remember the most. oh, and that 3d tank game (can never remember its name) which I thought was always quite difficult.
There's way too many, but almost "all my money" went into whichever game I was worst at.
First game to mug me was probably Scramble. Always stumbled when the flying aliens started in the cave section.
Other notable robberies were committed by: -
Kung Fu Master
In fact I can only think of a couple of games I was any good at, i.e. last over half an hour on one credit, Slap Fight and Solomon's Key.
Anyone feeling nostalgic, I heartily recommend Arcade Club if you're in the area.
plus one 2 player co-op wire frame vector graphics thing where you had to protect 4 triangular fuel pods from the invading hoards.
and lots of pinball
To name a few
Cadillacs & Dinosaurs
Honestly, this single post has made my week. Now planning a roadtrip with friends to check it out Thanks for mentioning
It's amazing how many people seemingly have no idea that place exists. The place is an absolute meca, it rivals anything massive from the coast in the 80's and some more.
Not been for a few years myself, VR kind of took over getting the same kicks in the Neon Retro Arcade. Amazing place to go visit, it'll blow you away if you've any kind of history with the arcades of the 70's/80's or 90's.
