Rocket Knight Adventures. Some absolutely stunning bits in that one. Axelay was a close second, I loved the Mode 7 stages.

Wow, what a tough question!

As I used to pump so many 10p's into the TMHT arcade machine many years ago I would have said that..... but then along came the Simpsons and our little green friends got forgotten about in favour of the little yellow ones!

Simpson arcade it is for me.

Track and Field still rocks though.

They may have been behind the likes of Dance Dance Revolution, Castlevania and Metal Gear Solid, and Smurph mentioned Rocket Knight Adventures which I freaking loved, but Konami defined what I was playing in arcades in the early nineties so it'll have to be Turtles.
It's called a MEGADRIVE

Not as such one game, although in close enough retro terms it would be the Winning Eleven or ISS series before the excellent Pro Evolution Soccer franchise (except for PES 2008) came along.

Lethal Enforcers - a mate, my bro and I played this to death. Used to hate accidentally killing an "Innocent Victim" as even if you did really well, and killed the boss you'd be demoted and have to repeat the level!

Pro Evolution Soccer - I never thought anything would beat Kick Off & Sensi but the Pro Evo games are stunning.

Mikie. No doubt about it. Classic fun and still as fresh as it ever was.

Absolutely 100% it would be Hyper Sports. It takes the amazing Track and Field to the next level, throwing in twice the humour, twice the fun and hasn't lost a single bit of its charm in nearly 25 years.

Hard to choose between Scramble and Amidar but if I can't choose both it will have to be Scramble. Or Amidar.

not entirely 'retro' but beatmania is not only an awesome game, but sowed the seeds for future massmarket guitar titles.
Second is the rather more retro Yume Penguin Monogatari, thanks RG for bringing this madcap adventure to my attention
