Best Games discovered?
« on: March 01, 2003, 10:19:26 pm »
I thought this might be an interesting question.  What are the best or most interesting games you'd never played nor heard of before you found them in MAME?

For me, I've become particularly fond of Reactor and Chicken Shift :^)

Cadillacs and Dinosaurs by Capcom...

Thats like one of the best game you will ever play..atleast one of the best classic..its kinda violant..i mean you get to butcher people around with a huge shiny butcher knife :o.

And you can blow people up with a bazooka then see their eye balls,bloods and flesh all popin out(scary for little kids).

I never really played Puzzle Bobble in the arcades. Good god is that addictive! It's the party game of choice around here.
If you build a frankenpanel, chances are I don't care for you as a person.

Always like playing Snow Bros. that's good fun.  Plus I always tried to play Narc although it wasn't in the arcades for too long and haven't seen one around for over 10 years  :'(

*EDIT* I probably should have read the original question properly before posting as I had played these in the arcades before mame.

OT: my buddy and I just finished NARC a few weekends ago... MR Big has the be the most ridiculously hard "last boss" to beat in any game I've ever played.
