Re: Doom-The console ports

I'm assuming homebrew source ports don't count, so I'm going to have to go with the GBA version. It might be blocky but considering the limitations of the system it's pretty impressive.

Re: Best arcade unit/game ever?

I know it's not exactly retro, but for sheer spectacle it's hard to beat Vulcan M. http://img.youtube.com/vi/8zV-DeGEKGc/0.jpg Or how about the legendary R360? http://www.b-boogie.com/opp/r360.jpg Personally though, my favourite has got to be this one: http://technabob.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/20...

I think you did, if you were Martin H on the sheet. Hail to the King baby! :lol: Seriously though, it was a brilliant event.

Ny friend would like to bring his 4-year-old daughter along to show her the games that he grew up with. Since we're both pretty new to the retro gaming scene, what's the ettiq...
