We're only counting retro, none of that new stuff ;)

But even then neither of those would make my top 100.

I understand what you mean complety Ant, both of these games have been over rated for years by fanboys and even though I think they both would make it into my top 100 they would be way, way down near the bottom.

Can't remember the name.

Fighter from the guys at Rare.

Features a character called Sabrewulf, a hot chick that can morph into a panther and a Predator like robot.

You can do really big combos on it too.

Anyone help me?

Stargate or Defender. I like Stargate more but either would do. It's not my favourite arcade game, but it's one that really encapsulates what it was all about back in the day; high difficulty but possible to learn and master, uncluttered visuals, crunchy and satisfying sound effects, immediate action.
