I'd also say Street Fighter 2 - its Iconic, its multiplayer and theres many different conversions of it - ticks all the boxes, no?

I'll also suggest SWIV, but thats just in my head beacuase I've been playing it this morning.......

Well I can tell you it won't be SF2. My view is that is has been done too many times and will already be prevelant at the show due to the beat em ups compo.

Pm-ed this one, but thought i`d post here, see what others think:

STARSKY AND HUTCH.PS2. Set up with a steering wheel and light gun for 2-player Co-op. One player The driver, other doing the shooting. Any good?. sounds like a chuckle, IF possible.

Also...Dreamcast with 4-Player powerstone 2?

I actually tried that once, with me doing both. It is quite fun and it harks back to the old cop movies with loads of car chases and shoot outs :D

How about Robotron, be interesting to see how some of the home ports shape up without the use of twin sticks.

Just make sure you get a steering wheel with pedals instead of dials. Makes it a lot easier, imho.

I think Bombjack would be a great game. It gives a good, fun challenge and it is easy to pick up and play

I have been trying to think of shoot em ups? Something like 1942 or R-type. How about something from the contra series, if thats possible x

Any game that we could use as a cover would be good for me.
