I just don't 'get' the hate for the arcade coin-op Pit Fighter.

I suspect many of those who rag on it have only ever played the game on a home computer/console. Or maybe they didn't experience the game at the time it was released and so dismiss it because it's not Street Fighter II et al.

Pit Fighter arcade. Played in Showboat. Total crap. Like playing a digitised rock, paper, scissors game with tourettes.

Hardest poll yet, there were quite a few games there I wanted to vote for but I just cannot look past Superman on the N64 and Dark Castle on the MD, possibly the 2 worst games ever made.

Very easy first choice, certainly the worst game in my collection, and the worst I have played, Green Beret.

Second choice is a bit more tricky, Chase HQ on C64 is a terrible conversion, but although there is no sense of speed, terribly drawn cars, and pathetic sound for the machine, it is still a better game than Rise Of the Robots, although that is like trying to work out which of two blocked sewers smells the worst.

Chase HQ on the 64 all the way, deservedly on the last issue of RG. A disgrace. Luckily after that Power Drift, Turbo Outrun, Chase HQ 2, Outrun Europa and Turbo Charge followed 8)

I'm going to abstain!!!!

I think only one I've played is pit fighter and while it wasn't great it shouldn't really be here

As someone else said every single home conversion was worse so why is the arcade here??

It's one of those games that it's popular to hate it seems. This is evidenced by the fact that it's the only game to appear twice in these polls :roll:

No other game appears more than once here. The SNES, Gameboy, Amstrad, C64, Spectrum and Master System versions are an absolute abomination yet the hugely popular arcade game that is still being re-released on arcade compilations to this day was judged more worthy :?

Look how Rise Of The Robots can be on "all" but Pit-Fighter must be mentioned on separate formats, makes no sense at all. :roll:

That's the logic of this forum for you.

Think starter from a nominations thread, but maybe people ended up going for over rates rather than worst

Like said there are probably 6 or 7 worse versions of pit fighter than the arcade one so makes no sense

Wow closest and hardest poll so far!

Regarding why some games have 'all' and others pick a format is because people who originally stated which games also said which versions, it's their choice... there's no conspiracy! :lol:

There are several reasons why i hate Pit Fighter and each and every one of them is because its rubbish. I have actually not played many of the home versions mainly the arcade version a few times back in the day and thought then as I do now that it sucked at the root end.
All opinions expressed in this post are just that and should not be reacted to by owners of a conflicting opinion although it must be stressed that the poor, misguided buffoons with conflicting opinions can go choke a chicken... which, come to think of it, would be much, much more fun than playing the sorry excuse for a game that is Pit Fighter Arcade. :D
Sorry... too much coffee. :lol:
