Arcade Ports for Project
« on: August 08, 2018, 09:58:55 am »
Hi all,

So, I am working on a personal arcade project and could use some recommendations. Before anyone feels compelled to tell me I'm doing it wrong, or suggests retropie, mame, or emulation, please know that I am well aware of these options and am choosing to do this this way for my own reasons...

That said, I'm building a modular Arcade cabinet, but I will be using a retrobit retro trio (NES, SNES, and Gen), cartridges and their console arcade sticks (NES advantage for example) that will be easily rotated in when needed. I'll probably be hooking up a Switch as well for SNK/neogeo, and some actual arcade games and such.

What I am looking for are suggestions for "must have" arcade ports from the NES, SNES, and Genesis. Examples that I am thinking of already are:

- Super Street Fighter II Turbo (SNES)
- Mortal Kombat II (Gen)
- Altered Beast (Gen)
- Golden Axe (I & II; Gen)
- Double Dragon II (NES)
- Super Hang On (Gen)
- After Burner II (Gen)

All game types are welcome, as I hope to eventually get some racing wheels (will definitely have one hooked up to the Switch), But I am especially interested in side scrolling Beat'em ups, SHMUPS, anything multiplayer, and many of the older generation ports (late 70's and early 80's). The only stipulation is that they are arcade ports.

Thanks!

- Mitch

Wow, oldgamerz took care of that in a hurry  ;)

As a lover of oldskool side-scrolling beat-em-ups myself, I was going to recommend King of Dragons, Knights of the Round, and Captain Commando for SNES, along with Sunset Riders.

Just make sure if you include Captain America and the Avengers, go with the Genesis version. The SNES port’s controls are really messed up, making the game almost unplayable.

Holy Moly! (sorry for being a way for a bit!)

I'll have to sift through that for a minute.

Killer Instinct, totally forgot about that one. That is a must, good recommendation!

I hear great things about Knights of the Round, but have never actually seen it in person. Might have to look in to that one.

Thanks!
