Same here. I can't continuously play one game all the time. Variety is the spice of life, don't you know. :D

Super Mario Kart.

It used to be SFII but I've become pretty rusty after all these years.

I've spent most of this week 'brushing up' my skills - I was pretty rusty myself.

If you're rusty , shouldn't you be polishing rather than brushing up your skills ?

Same here, yesterday in fact. Got stuck on the guy from Thailand, got past past Dhalism :lol: :wink: so quite smug with that, was playing between Ryu and Ken on Capcom Classics for the PS 2. SF II, Hyper Edition can't even touch that. :cry:

It's usually to do with that gaming experience we had over the years.

I used to be able to nail Outrun in one credit. Not the hardest thing to do, granted, but it made me happy.

Was always pretty good at Gauntlet, played it in the arcades for hours at a time and then at home on the Specy 128+2, (I remember the excitement at the anouncement of Gauntlet getting home versions).

Annoyingly SF2 Turbo/SF2 Hyper Fighting (depending on what you call it) is way too quick for my co-ordination to handle. I understand the game needing to be quicker - but not THAT MUCH quicker & I've never been a fan of the Super SF2 series. I much prefer Street Fighter II: Champion Edition.

I used to play a pretty mean Pacmania back in the day. Useless at it now though.
