The greatest arcade games of all time....
« posted: Oct 4th 2012, 2:01 pm »

Hi folks,
I've been lucky enough to get an old arcade cabinet which me and my mate are trying to restore. Would love to hear some of peoples favourite arcade games to see if I've missed any classics from the ones I've picked. So please list your games...

Was "Battle Squadron" ever an arcade machine game? It seemed perfectly suited to it, so that's worth setting up if it was. Also the Outrun and Cruisin' series of games are ones I remember from "the day".

Good choices, I do remember the Hang On cabinet with the bike that leaned that was pretty sweet. And the full size Afterburner cab that moved. Happy days  :D

If you have any interest in scrolling beat-em-ups, may I recommend Metamorphic Force, by Konami, and Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, by Capcom. Both are great fun, are pretty ridiculous, and just exude that early nineties arcade feel.
If you need any convincing, then maybe the fact that you get to PUNCH DINOSAURS may help!

Going to try Metamorphic Force, thats a new one to me  :) Love Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, that is a classic. Also got to play The Punisher this week on MAME and that was fantastic. Well worth a look
