With many mame titles, I actually pref re the 8 bit conversion, ESP the likes of Bubble Bobble, Metrocross (c64) and Bomb smack, Green Bert (speccy). One game I love playing on mame, and that has never been properly replicated or bettered in the home is Rampage.

A lot of variety in this list! And it reminds me, I haven't played Mappy in a while. Nor Time Pilot or Sky Kid Deluxe. Though they're great games I'm more into later stuff with better 2D graphics.

My go-tos are usually Space Harrier and R-Type.
I also like a bit of Trigon, and Midnight Wanderers and Chariot from Capcom's Three Wonders.

Mr. Do(that seems really popular here)
Bubble Bobble
Mercs(looks and plays better than the Amiga version)
Smash TV(with the twin joystick set-up naturally)
Aliens(which never got a home conversion strangely)
Xybots(I have to press a key to turn around on that one)
Gauntlet 1 and 2
R-Type 1 and 2

Excellent fighter with some great characters. The granny cracks me up
Momoko 120%
Nice little platformer featuring what must be one of the unluckiest girls in gaming. She's always in a burning building! Unless she's actually a serial arsonist?
Batrider
Love this game, though I'm pretty poor at it. Always seems to take a few goes until my eyes adjust to be able to see enemy bullets
Cyvern
Amazing soundtrack, and a really nice and straightforward scoring system
Trio The Punch
Can't play this without smiling, it's just terrific fun

And a whole bunch of others

Seeing a lot of Time Pilot love, and rightly so, but I tend to go for the sequel, Time Pilot '84, since playing it in the league a few years back. Once you get past the graphical change (it's all sci-fi and rockets), its a much better game.

Q Bert in recent months. Having a bit of a high score push.

Otherwise, mainly the old classics:
Asteroids
Scramble
Galaxian
Robotron
Etc

(Strangely, I have gone right off all the Sega games with sprite scaling. I thought they were ace back in the day but I find them strangely unappealing these days. Weird.)

So many classics..

Green Beret
Out Run
Ghost n Goblins
Bomb Jack
Bubble Bobble
New Zealand Story
Commando
Star Wars

I still like playing one level of say Pacman/Space Invaders/Centipede but those early early games as its the same level over and over again i get bored with. But one level for old times sake!
