Let's Name the top 50 Arcade Cabinets?
« on: November 24, 2013, 02:20:16 pm »
Hey all!

I was putting together a Mame cabinet, and realized I don't think we ever did a "Top" Arcade games.  I'm hoping to see some forgotten gems in the list!  If we already did this, slap me, and direct me.  In that order.

1.)  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 



I loved that you didn't really get to CHOOSE your character per se, it was just whatever was open.

2. Black Tiger
3. Golden Axe
4. Double Dragon

5. Hang-On

I suspect this list will have to go well beyond 50. Hell, we are 10% through and haven't hit one title from the golden era of the late 70s early 80s.

It's just not an arcade without a sit down twin Daytona cab (or ideally, the eight player version)

Should we try to knock these multigame cabs down to one game and not combos. Some make more sense than others. It might be nice to get the list to be a solid list of games, and not a way to get as many games as possible. Seems more in spirit of the list, maybe. What do others think?

I agree. If this was a console list the equivalent would currently look something like this -

**Top 50 retro games list**

1. Sonic 2
2. Guardian Heroes
3. Super Mario Bros.
4. Playstation
5. DoDonPachi
6. Famicom
