Arcade Sports games

Post by pforson » Thu Dec 02, 2010 8:06 am

Hi,

I've recently been playing some mame on my new bartop and was wondering if people could recommend some good arcade sports games (especially footy games)?

So far I have:
Super Sidekicks series
NBA Jam
Ultimate Tennis

Ta,
Pete

Are you including racing games? (Super Monaco, WEC Le Mans, etc)

Do you want to include button bashers like Hyper Olympics and Hyper Sports? The latter is certainly still worth a visit.

Turf Masters and Super Sidekicks are both gaming gold. I really need to play Street Hoop.

Street Hoop
NFL Blitz
Virtua Tennis / Striker (can't play polygon games on my cab though because the pc isn't powerful enough)
Neo Turf Masters
Hyper Sports and Hyper Olympics
Arch Rivals (what sport is this?)
Football Champ
Goal Goal Goal

Any more?
Ta,

Arch Rivals is basketball, a Midway game from the late 80s.
