I remember going on a holiday to France back in 91 and my brother and I spending most of our spending money for the week on a Wrestlefest machine they had on the car ferry going over. Still so much fun to play on coin-ops on the xbox, but a lot easier when you can just spam the add coin button to regain your health instantly...

Has to be WrestleFest.

A fantastic snapshot of the WWF in 1991.

Hogan, Warrior, Perfect, DiBiase, Earthquake, Road Warriors and several others.

This game got most of my spare change, probably more than any other arcade with one or two exceptions.

Such a shame that Randy Savage, Roddy Piper and Rick Rude aren't in the game.

Savage would still have been active (The game would have been developed before his WrestleMania VII ''retirement'), Piper was feuding with DiBiase and Perfect during 1990 and 1991 and Rude had yet to depart for WCW.

Even now I still play it pretty often via emulation.

The gameplay is wonderful fun, and the graphics are brilliant and over 25 years later it still stands up brilliantly.

WWE remade this a few years back, but it doesn't come close to the original

Definitely Double Dragon, such good memories of me and my mates playing n the arcades back in the 80's

Same for Wrestlefest, although I seem to recall playing Superstars (also by technos) more, I think was beginning to lose interest in WWF by the time Wrestlefest came out

But Double Dragon is definitely the one that I have the best memories of


Actually Technos' Exciting Hour/Mat Mania probably got more play time from me than either

If home conversions counted Renegade would be right up there too

Probably DD1 or Dodgeball, haven't played all of them and I'm more familiar with their console games.

These are my top two Technos games too and the poll reflects the same results. Surprised not to see Renegade get any love though!

Absolutely love Wrestlefest.

Bizarrely when I was growing up my local swimming pool had it in the entrance. My school would take us swimming once a week and I would always rush to get dressed afterwards so that I could play it before the bus turned up.
