Super Dodgeball is really fun, but I think I'd go with the option that is absent in the poll - River City Ransom. Although I don't like the slowdown that's going on in the FC original so it might be a toss between SDB and RCR.

Carry on with crap like this and you'll be given a ban.

River City Ransom isn't an arcade game.

I had a friend who would play this game endlessly at the beach. His favourite strategy was to win by ring-out by smashing his opponent outside with a chair and then quickly getting back in. I think it was Andre who used to be too much of a match for him if I can remember properly. Good times....

Ah, that was the first one WWF Superstars then, as Andre isn't on the second one. Wrestlefest is the far superior game.

Double Dragon for me. Remember playing that for the first time at an arcade in France. Then my Sega Master System owning friend wanted to buy it, but unfortunately couldn't find it in the local computer shop, so he got Afterburner instead! :D

I played Double Dragon on master system. Not bad and a good 2 player option. Just don't expect anything near arcade perfect and you can enjoy the game.
