Which Arcade Game were you best at?

Which Arcade Game were you most likely to get the high score on?
Which one(s) did you really master?

I got very good at Hatris, often getting a score of over 100,000

I was also quite good at Bomb Jack, getting through over 20 screens sometimes.

I once won a 4 player Mario Kart Arcade...

Seriously, that's about as good as it gets for me. Being crap at games whilst surrounded by lot's of other people better than you does not help. And even though I was into games as a kid, going to arcades just never got me going.

We did win some pitiful amount on a quiz machine due to my mad Geography skillz though. Which is an arcade game of sorts...right?

I was always surprisingly good at Lunar Lander. My friends hated me for it :P

UN SQUADRON and OUTRUN... I could beat Outrun four times out of five. For all I know though, the difficulty could have been turned down.

I'm pretty good at both Rockman arcade games. I can 1CC them with Protoman with just the default weapon, other than that I'm pretty bad at most arcade games :lol:

I could play (without being embarrassed by onlookers) Bombjack, Crystal Castles, Virua Tennis, Amidar, Scramble.

Not super-high scores or anything, just good enough to get my name up there!

Probably Eighteen Wheeler or Tekken 5. I wasn't too bad at Silent Scope either.

I honestly can't think of any arcade game I'd class myself really good at. I am familiar with Streetfighter 2 and Mortal Kombat, these days I'd probably fare better on a shmup, but I still can't 1cc any of them. Get to stage 4 on 1 credit on both Battle Garegga and Dimahoo, not exactly great.

I would say Streetfighter II. I used to be able to complete it using 1 credit on Ken, Ryu, and Guile, plus the bonus stages (the car, the glass breaking, and the barrel breaking). This was only after playing for 3 months and mastering all the moves though!! I was also pretty good at Smash TV(in 2 player of course).
