Yooooo Hyper Fighting is THE BOMB!!
No Borderlands on the list??
damn i forgot about freedom fighters, great stuff. i remember long nights with friends play multiplayer bracket style tournaments.
UNIRACERS! i forgot about that game.
I'm not sure why you're always raving about Freedom Fighters, Jeff. Time has not been kind to it, and it's clunky as hell. I understand the nostalgia goggles, but it wasn't all that great, even back in '03.
Hmm, I don't think I see Darkest of Days on there. Weird.
So many classics, but no Excitebike? The first time I saw Bungie's Forge I was instantly teleported back to the level editor and all the spectacular madness (at least for it's time) you could create in Excitebike. I mean, hitting multiple jumps and scrolling through the screen!
I'd smack anyone that dis mario or any other character in the mario series
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH!!! I played Rez before on a demo. very rythmic; very cool.
I have always wondered why they never made a Freedom Fighter sequel, that games was crazy, that and the Communism.. all of that Communism.
UMK3 was fun but U hated Motaro, he was stronger than Shao Kahn, awesome range and auto reflect special abilities (Noob's Cloud or Liu Kang's Fireball) way too OP in comparison to the latter.
Space Taxi is a game I always loved, and always awaited a proper remake. I may just have to do one myself.....
I remember getting Motocross Maniacs for my birthday many years ago ... that was probably the last time I felt any joy on my bday, lol ... I wish I was kidding.
Motorcross Maniacs is DOPE!
5 of these games are on the list of my favorite games from 1982-2004 which is enough to make me further trust Jeff as a reviewer.
I thought I was one of the only people who LOVED Smash TV... Thanks for the list!
Man Jeff, you make me feel young.
Hell yeah Uniracers!
I'm so glad that someone else besides me loved Freedom Fighters. IO should make a sequel to this instead of Kane & Lynch. That game was dong.
Freedom fighters 2 needs to be made.
You're right, the Epyx peeps were royalty back in the day. Jumpman Jr tormented me for nights on end, and I've never finished Sword of Fargoal despite the many hours I put into it.
Epyx were also responsible for my favourite game of all time, Impossible Mission. I still love that game so much every time I play it, although I'm not sure it'd find a place on that other list of yours.
Yes ! Uniracers made the list ! I played sooo much of that back in the SNES days !
Ultimate MK 3 is also one of my favorite fighting games. It's just so satisfying to unleash a 7 hit combo on someone.
I also love Smash TV. I always had so much fun going nuts at the arcade when I played it. I still play it at home on the Midway Arcade Treasures Vol. 1. The animation you see when you step on a mine and the character's eye ball flies up at the screen is still bad ass.
Didnt expect to see Uniracers! I use to play that non-stop all the time! It was fun for sure it also had a nice Sonic vibe going on!
EXTREMLY hard, yes, me and my cousin did try to beat it without cheating, we failed...
Most of the children on this site don't even know 90% of the games you listed. Great list.
I agree with no. 4, 7, 13, 16, 20 and 25. Skate or Die is probably the most ridiculous game on this list. But, every time I heard the phrase "Skate Or Die" on that game I would say "FUCK YEAH!!!!". Amazing fun. Incredible.
Agreed on the Freedom Fighters game. Playing the multiplayer with some friends is so fun. Stealing each others bases and the flag. Great game.
I'm glad (and a little bit suprised) to see Uniraces on your list! This was a great game and a blast to play it with friends!
Freedom Fighters was pretty sweet. Was it the multiplayer on Freedom Fighters where one team started with good guns and the other team started with really shitty guns? I seem to remember some epic arguments trying to play that game.
I've played about 3 of the games on that list in total. My brother owned a C64 I think, but I was about 4 at the time. Now if you wanna talk about some Amiga or Archimedes games...
Don't know if you've ever played it, but the C64 version of Smash TV is pretty damn good. Joystick for moving, keyboard for shooting (or was that the other way around?), heaps of nicely animated sprites running smoothly and a nice Jeroen Tel soundtrack . Very slick conversion.
street fighter 2 turbo hyper fighting FTW!
" Uniracers! I'm not alone! I played that game to death! I haven't played it in more than a decade, I'm sure! "I know man, Uniracers is the shit.
Uniracers! I'm not alone! I played that game to death! I haven't played it in more than a decade, I'm sure!
great list, jeff. I will see your list, and raise you a SuperSpike V'Ball for NES.
Those games are old school. I actually don't like old games that much. I grew up with NES and Master System, but I don't think those games are very good today. The SNES is as early as I would go.
OH MAN SUPER MARIO WORLD IS AWESOME.
so wheres persona 4 on this list?
god damn, Freedom Fighters. I love the hell out of that game.
