Absolute favorite 2 games!!!
« on: November 04, 2004, 07:22:15 pm »
What is your 2 favorite original Arcade games of all times?

I want to limit to ONLY 2 without an extra 2 or 3 honorable mentions.

I'm sure this has been done before but I'm new here and I would like to start using a front-end when I finish my cabinet. I have my favorites list but I would like to include your favorites too.

Also what is the most visitor-frendly front end (using Mame and pin-mame)

My 2 are:

Robotron
Stargate

(I suck at both, 3rd level max)

Crazy Climber
Bosconian

Most of the "good" front-ends are very easy to use--once you get them set up properly.
I am personally using MAMEWAH, but there are several others that are similar in features, and a few that even have some more advanced features I didn't need for my purposes.

Metal Slug 2 & R-type

"good" front ends would be:
* Game launcher

* Kymaera

Yeah, I don't think I will need advanced features either. I just want the one my mom will be able to use. Yes my mom is looking foward to my cab also. One day when I was about 12, me and my mom dropped $250 of her dollars in the arcade in about 4 hours. (yes we both suck at games)

Strider & Shinobi... at least, right now.

As for the FE, I like MAMEwah and Dragon King, since they're the only ones I've really used.

And to drop $250 in four hours? You're not just whistlin' dixie!

Tough to think of 2 but if I were stranded on an island or somethingand had to pick to they'd be:

Defender
Robotron

I'd be pretty depressed though.     ;)
