Time Pilot, because I loved feeling smugly superior in my space jet shooting down those saps in their little bi-planes.

Mystical Ninja Starring Goeman on the N64. The theme song alone is worth buying the game for...Altogether now "GOING NOW!"

My fave is Road Fighter. First time I got Superman to fly up the screen I spazzed out.

Very hard question to answer....

But the Konami game that I STILL love with the warmth of a thousand suns is Thundercross.

Beautiful graphics, memorable levels, fantastic weapons.

JUST MAKE SURE YOU PLAY THE JAPANESE ROM SET.
The "USA" one is an abomination!!

Let's be right here - Konami have and always will kick ass. One of the most consistent developers there is for releasing flippin awesome titles.

My personal fave is Salamander though and it's spiritual sequel Axelay.

For me it has to be The Legend of the Mystical Ninja on the SNES. I stayed up all night playing it after renting it out from my local video store. Needless to say that I went out and bought it the next day with my pocket money.

Hmmmm...tricky one. There are a few it could be but I've managed to narrow it down to one of these three - Frontier, Castlevania: SOTN or How Many 'Dance Dance Revolution' Cabinets Can you Burn in Twenty Minutes?. This might have to go to a dance-off.

Track and Field at a push?
Ooh, they published Flatout in Japan...does that count?
Agreed, I don't know why but I've never really been a Konami kinda guy. Reading this thread the only game that I can think of is Rocket Knight Adventures. I remember it being really quite new and special with it's large sprites and super fast gameplay. I really hadn't seen anything like it on the mega drive before.

Pro Evolution Soccer, just to be original.

Other than that I'd go for Bishi Bashi Special - despite (or perhaps because of) being created by drug-addled minds.

Absolutely, undeniably, Pro Evo Soccer.

My favourite has to be Hyper Sports (I was just playing it last night and getting vexed at the weightlifting...as usual)!

Track and Field was also a top game, but Hyper Sports certainly floats my boat!

Nice to see someone mention Axelay as well - that was a great game. Its been years since I played that - might have to dig it out and have a blast later..!

It has to be Metal Gear Solid on the PlayStation. A predictable choice perhaps, but it deserves a mention. Not only did it look great at the time, it also played great. A truly cinematic experience that also immersed me emotionally. Fantastic.
