So saying Pit Fighter is garbage considered cool now? I never realised that you had to do so little to be trendy these days. Some people need to get over themselves.......

Not too self-important then?
No offence there, mate, but i seriously could not care less about yours or anyone elses opinion of a particular game when it comes to forming an opinion of my own. I didn't even know of your existence when i formed my opinions of Pit Fighter back in the early 90's and the fact that you A. really like it and B. do not think it should be on this poll has absolutely zero influence over an opinion i formed years ago. Oh, and for the record I prefer Rise Of the Robots... there is not much in it but yeah, I got more play time out of Rise on the Snes than I did Pit Fighter in the arcade so please don't ever think that I reference what you think of a game before i decide what i think of a game because that is the highest form of delusion.
If some users on here do decide to hate a game because you like it then shame on them but don't count me amongst those losers please. :D
That said Pit Fighter All Formats would have been a more sensible entry than Pit Fighter on more than one format, but hey, this poll has been everything but sensible.

So saying a game is crap if you think it's crap but other people think it's crap but other people say it to be cool but some people don't but they aren't cool but it's not cool unless you don't like the game but if you do like the game make sure you don't?

Pit Fighter is a great game, I really enjoyed the arcade and Amiga versions but it is a game that most people think is sh1t.

It always features in worst game polls and it's not because people are trying to hate a highly regarded game, the truth is that most gamers just do not like it.

If people want to vote for Pit Fighter then fair enough, I fully expect to see it in the final!

I voted Shaq-Fu for the box art and the game, only played 4 of the list though... I seem to have it on the SNES and megadrive for some reason... why? :roll:

Oh bugger. Well it's so long since I played it that I forgot about any ending. I believe I might have mixed it up with C16's Bridge Head which I don't think had an ending at all and just a press play on tape message (I'm not talking about the plus/4 version here), Hey I'm not the perfect C16 knowledgeable guy in the world (leave me alone). Either that or my copy of Green Beret was bugged (as well as my memory).

Anyway, my review if C16's Green Beret here and on Commodore16 dot com is now slightly amended :)

I must play Super Gran which I've never played. Isn't it meant to be similar to Monkey Magic though which I quite like.

That's Winnie Witch's Superbroom you're thinking of - it's not very super.

More super than SuperGran though.

And it STILL manages to be superior the woeful Master System version which was actually finished!

To me the graphics look better on that 7800 version.
