This was basically my thought - I'd love to go back to the times when you could go from 10p a go on Xybots , Buck Rogers , Gauntlet , Super Off Road , Crude Buster , Final Fight etc and even if you didnt like the game it was no major financial loss (apart from my first ever play on Double Dragon 3 - even 10p was too much).silvergunner wrote:Resident evil on ps1 and metal gear on ps1 fantastic titles. My other would be to be able to walk into a old style arcade with rows and rows of 10p machines from around the late eighties to beginning of the nineties as a small child again for the first time and just thinking woooooowwwww what's all this great stuff that's something none of us will experience again that's for sure.
We didnt have local arcades apart from one on CLent Hills or Stourport if you could get to them,so mostly it was holidays in Wales and the masses of variety of games available was a constant source of wonder to me. These days there is little to be excited about in the arcades.
So id love to relive each and every time I came to the arcades and saw the familiar Pole Position nestling next to a new game like Mercs or Rtype, made holidays even better.
From a home gaming perspective I would say it would be Midnight Resistance and some of the later spectrum games - taking a real chance porting stuff like midnight resistance in the first place , but to make it really enjoyable and really push the graphics that way really blew me away. That and the first time I ever played Streets of Rage 2 on my megadrive. Brilliant graphics , great music and what felt like the closest I would get to a cross between final fight and Streetfighter 2. Even now it is still a milestone in its genre , if not a major peak.
Also Road Rash on the MD. First time i jumped at the top of a hill , bounced off the top of a car and still carried on was the most fun I had had in a racing game since Stunt Car Racer. An update of that (other than those awful PS1 versions) would please me no end.
