I can relate to that... probably watched the Robocop films more than any other.

For me, though, the first Robocop arcade game was far superior. But as I've said before, the world would be boring if we all shared the same opinion.
I still think the TV series or the series of 4 TV movies should of got video games tv series on the megadrive or something like that and tv movies on ps2.

One of my favourites was Congo Bongo, mainly because the local arcade had it set to 2 games for 10p, but most people didn't realise, meaning loads of free games for me.

Also loved Bubble Bobble and Mappy, but number one has to be Wonder Boy, the only game that I could actually play one game for a couple of hours and draw a crowd around me watching. Often ended up just walking away with lives remaining because I just decided to go and do something else instead.

toughy this one, so i'm going to go with one I played every time I went to the arcade - salamander

closely followed by (in joint second place) final fight, street fighter 2, ghosts n goblins, strider, bubble bobble, shinobi, virtua racing, r type, outrun, space harrier and the white water pin table.

then...flying shark, outzone, golden axe, powerdrift, hot rod, prehistoric isle, xexex, cyber sled, heavyweight champ, gauntlet, rainbow islands, smash tv, virtua cop, xmen, star wars.

but to be honest the arcades were so good where I grew up I could list 100 games I played regularly...awesome times.
