What is your second most favorite arcade game?
« on: December 17, 2016, 10:20:20 AM »
​Hey Guys,

I am looking to expand my collection of arcade games and in the meantime I think I have a nice understanding of what the best and greatest games are. I am however interested in understanding what your second most favorite games are. In other words which games are still the hidden gems of arcade games?

Looking forward to your suggestions and it would be great to understand the reasons behind your choice as well.

Regards,

Pieter

I don't like arcade games at all!



 ;D


Seriously, you will get a wiiiide range of games if everybody gives his vote.

One of my all time favourites is Sprint 2. Old black&white game, I'm so much fascinated how far they already got a few years after Pong :)

But you MIGHT be more interested in late 80s/early 90s stuff so Sprint 2 will never be on your wish list ;)

Sprint 2 is an awesome game!
Not to many people seem to be interested in the old B&W games, atleast not here in Sweden.

Thanks for the input guys. This helped me a lot to get some inspiration on new games to collect. Sprint 2 and Rainbow Islands are on the list too as they are now my personal favorites :D

Throughout the web I received a lot of suggestions next to yours. Below you will find the short list as I had to prune the list substantially to make it manageable. I watched the longplays of the games and selected the following games to be on the list:

    Hammerin Harry
    Guardians / Denjin Makai 2
    Deamon Bride
    Metamorphic Force
    In The Hunt
    Punisher
    Radiant Silvergun
    Soukyugurentai / Terra Diver
    Elevator Action Returns
    Deathsmiles
    Dodonpachi Daioujou
    Mushihimesama
    Double Dragon
    Xain'd Sleena
    Spy Hunter
    Sunset Riders
    Shark Attack
    Donkey Kong 3
    Strider
    Breakers Revenge
    Air Buster / Aeroblasters
    Buta San
    Final Star Force
    Bubble Bobble
    Rainbow Islands
    Sprint 2
    Parodius Da!
    Gokujyou Parodius!
    Sexy Parodius
    Violent Storm
    Bucky O'hare
    All Points Bulletin
    Time Soldiers
    Crackdown
    Black Tiger
    Black Dragon
    Robocop
    Smash TV
    Shadow Dancer
    Shadow Warriors
    Point Blank
    X-Men vs Street Fighter
    Twinkle Star Sprites

And yes this is the short list... :oops: ... if you would like to see the whole list just let me know  ;D

Are there any games that we still miss?

Rainbow Islands is a fantastic game with an advanved point/treasure system, even deeper than the deep Bubble bobble...

Feel the need to play it now...
Sadly its not a common pcb and a couple habe been sold for around 400euros.

The Nintendo ones are probably my favs but that's quite a boring answer.

Otherwise I would say Moon Patrol as no 1 & Lode Runner as no 2. Speaking of game play only, these are in the top for me.

I'd say currently that my second favorite (to play) would be Scramble,
although I must add that my "top lists" tend to change quite alot

difficult to make a permanent list, i'd say moon patrol (with crystal castles being #1 because of the sickness of the cabinet)
all i need is ... PONG - and a select few others: TOUCH ME, DRAGON'S LAIR, JOUST, ROBOTRON, MR DO, SAN FRANCISCO RUSH THE ROCK!!!
