The only arcade game I've ever 1cc'd was The Last Bounty Hunter, but I'm pretty good at the Point Blank games.

Good question!

At the time the three I probably spent the most time and money on and therefore got to be the best at would be WWF WrestleFest, The Simpsons and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

I finally completed Paperboy when an arcade in my town suddenly got it from somewhere. It was nearly ten years later before I played it again... and completed it first time!! :mrgreen:

I can get first on the podium in Track and Field thanks to the brilliant Atari VCS version which is arcade perfect in gameplay. I also won the final of Euro Football Champ a couple of times and could go on and on in 1942. Never did quite complete Out Run though, which is a big regret.

Back in the day I could 1 cc Double Dragon, Golden Axe, Shadow Warriors, Killer Instinct with Orchid(nobody could wipe of my 48 hit combo with her) and I could easily 1cc Virtua Cop 2 and Time Crisis. Playing them recently Virtua Cop 2 made my arm ache on the third level, and Time Crisis I died on level 3 as I forgot where the people come from

Recently in Arcade Club Rodlands, Chase HQ, Midnight Resistance, hydrolic Hang On and Gorf I lasted a long time on, I was rubbish on everything else. Amazing to play sit down Star Wars and a proper Missile Command and Battlezone Cabs
