Yes I see that, was just confused to see it there. Especially as KLOV usually assign games to the original producer rather than distributors.

I personally do not think that Nintendo ever really excelled at arcade gaming, they were far better with home consoles and games.

I have an inexplicable affection for DK Jr. Popeye is also a good runner up.

Sadly never got chance to play earlier games in any arcades - My vote has to go on Mario Kart GP. Many holidays of late I have a match or 5 against my son. Prefer that game to most later home versions.

Only thing I object to is paying per race. A horrible trend that never went away.

+1 for Donkey Kong.

I never liked it as a kid but started playing it properly a while back and I'm really into it now.

I always liked the much-maligned Radar Scope when I was a kid. Apparently those old cabs were repurposed for DK.

Haven't played any of them. If i came across them in an arcade, then i'd most likely put my cash into F-Zero (AX or regular).
No, i'm not angry. That's just how i write.
