Some of the 8 bit conversions were easier to play than the arcade machines. Paperboy, Ghost and Goblins and Buggy all C64 are three that standout, not better at home, just more accessable. Fortuantely I was surrounded by arcade machines when I grew up and had the choice. Wasnt the same for everybody.

Pinball FX on XBLA is probaly the best Video Game version ever made, Rocky and Bullwinkle is the real standout table.

Devil Crash was rather nice too.

Try Mr Dodig if you can find it, had recoloured graphics. Maybe you played a hack when you were younger?

The apples were only red in the CBM 64 and Apple II conversions or the travesty was Magic Meanies on the spectrum. The arcade was always yellow/orange/green. rather awesome they were too.

You should post more, most miffed mat is a great user name. Retro is less retro in general because it has come out of the garden shed, RG does an excellent job and Darran works tirelessly to please everyones whims (except mine, the xbox is definately retro ;)), and to say that it is in decline is ju...

Would be easier to do than Mr Do! but far less interesting, Universal inadvertantley created mvs through the development of the Mr Do! franchise, and contributed much more than people think to video games.

There is also a problem with some games when switched to a new machine, that they only give you the demo mode online or not, Sonic being one.

Nintendo basically sell the same game over and over, and this is really my only problem with them, was never a nes or snes fan, but loved the N64, not for the first party stuff though (Except Zelda Ocarina). Still have a Cube that is seldom used, and the Wii I sold within weeks of getting it, just n...
