Y. CHOE'S TOP TEN COIN-OP VIDEOGAMES|
Well, if you want a top ten classic video game list, you got it (and the honorables).
This is just ten games I like--I may not play them as regularly as the newer games, but
they are loads of fun, and provides Arcade Gaming Goodness.
10. Raiden Fighters
Extreme Rush when I play this game. Sure, I can't get past level one (because
its too hard in the arcade where I play it), but it doesn't matter, cause this game is so cool.
While Psycho Shooters (1945 Strikers, Tengai, etc.) innovated the multi character
shoot 'em ups, nothing beats RF in excitement.
Not the Capcom one, but where the one where you get your five friends
and beat up Magneto. Two big screens filled with glorious graphics lifted right
out of the comic books. Dang fun, and the super powers don't hurt either. Still
shows that old style X-Men knows how to take care of business.
9. Star Wars (Model 1)
Extremely cool game, and the big screen helps you to fully believe that
you are an ace Rebel fighter. The Super Star Destorier Scene should not be
missed by anyone.
8. Star Wars
The classic SW is still the tops. Shooting the towers, and going to the
Death Star Trench to kick some Imperium butt. The original is still the best.
7. Bad Dudes vs. Dragon Ninja
Limited compared to DD or other brawl games, but I really liked this
game--a game where you drink cola to replenish your energy gets the
marks in my book.
6. Double Dragon
The best Brawl games I've plays, bar none. No, not even SF series
compares to DD in terms of sheer fun.
Just weird, and original gameplay. Be a Narc and bust some
criminals over the head, and arrest them for more points. Cool.
Simple, monotonus, but man, why is that so much fun?
3. Final Fight
One of few games to top Double Dragon in this respect. Superb
Graphics, lotsa enemies with personalities(!) and bosses, and oh so
2. Point Blank
Who says you have to shoot criminals? Shoot targets, test your
skills, and have lotsa fun in the process.
1. Virtual On
Giant Robots rules again. Big robots vs. bigger robots. The most
innovative fighting game yet. It's still a fighting game (1 on 1, in vein of
Street Fighter), but never done with so much style or flair...
Street Fighter II (Capcom)
Hang On (Sega)
Missile Command (Atari)
Star Force (Tehkan)
King Of Fighters series (SNK)
Ikari Warriors (SNK)
