I'm sure there's one floating around here, but I couldn't find it. Throw down your ideas for This Is the Run.

I propose Zombies Ate My Neighbors, a 90's classic. It's difficult, huge enemy variety, great weapon variety, marvelous opportunities for Vinny and Dan to mess each other up, and great maps. It's a longer game, but the passwords to get to different levels would allow them to save progress.

Shock Troopers for the Neo Geo. It's on every modern platform via Arcade Archives and it owns super hard. It's an arcade game, so no continues (or a predefined continue limit, like 3?), obviously.

Alternatively, I dunno, Metal Slug or something.

Streets of Rage 2 on Mania difficulty! It's a good challenge, and you only have limited continues.

Shattered Soldier or Neo Contra on PS2, assuming that those things have a permanent game over.

Blazing Chrome, once it comes out, could be a fun Contra-like throwback too.

I love Zombies Ate My Neighbors but it's so hard.

Comix Zone would be nuts but no co-op. Streets of Rage 2 on Mania.

I'd like for them to have a second team, maybe from GBWest, and then make it competitive. The team that completes the game in the fewest runs wins.

Any actually good game will do. Altered Beast is f'n awful, it was funny for a few episodes but now it's just painful.

EDIT: Ok just watched the latest episode and it was hilarious, because they hate it and it's terrible. But still, it would be good to see a good game after this.

It would probably never happen because it would take too long, but I'd love to see them do a cross coast This Is The Run taking on a horde mode of some kind on a hard difficulty. Maybe one of the Gears of Wars, or since it's popular again, Frontier Defence on Titanfall 2.

I think the arcadey retro co-op thing fits the series really well, but anytime they've done horde mode streams for GoW has been pretty interesting too. It could easily be a Breaking Brad or it's own thing as well. Maybe some kind of hybrid This Breaking Brad is the Run.

Really I just want more GB co-op content.

I think I went Wild Guns Reloaded last time we did this. That's a hard game that's also beautiful and high quality, the exact kinda game I'd wanna see them butt their heads against.

Loading Video...

There are so many good games, so I'll just second Efesell too. Do good games, the bad ones we all gotta endure but the good games are riveting to watch just to see what's next.

I would like to watch Jeff Bakalar guest in Dan's chair and watch him and Vinny try to one-run Turtles in Time while Jeff continues to try to explain why the Ninja Turtles are a cooler, more enduring property than Transformers.

I literally beat that in one sitting when I first got it as a kid. My mom was not happy after spending a lot of money on it. So too easy for This is the Run

@redhotchilimist: I like Wild Guns Reloaded as well - and because it does 4 player co-op, if Dan & Vinnie want to do a full Beast run (with some combination of Alex, or Jeff, or Abby in the other two spots) that would be pretty cool.

This is a too late to the party thing, but I thought that Murder Island should have been a This Is The Run. Murder Island more or less ended when they did finally get the chicken dinner, but it would have been a fun idea if they just combined the two together.

You could have that idea with other battle royales, like Apex Legends, although I personally find them less interesting to watch. Maybe seeing so much Battlegrounds just made me tired of the whole thing.

@rigas: I know it is not hard, but I still think the Capcom/Disney Afternoon games of the NES era are some of the best suited for that feature... with one caveat though, only Chip and Dale have co-op. :(

@redhotchilimist:

Yeah, Wild Guns Reloaded is still my dream game for them to do for this feature. I think it is just the right amount of difficulty, plus a hell of a fun game. Reloaded has infinite continues, so they could limit themselves to a 1CC run or something.

Shock Troopers for the Neo Geo. It's on every modern platform via Arcade Archives and it owns super hard. It's an arcade game, so no continues (or a predefined continue limit, like 3?), obviously.

Alternatively, I dunno, Metal Slug or something.

I just picked up that NeoGeo mini a couple days ago, and Shock Troopers (and a sequel, apparently, which I haven't tried yet) is on there. I had never heard of it before, and gave it a shot, are you are right, that game is awesome! Kinda reminds me of Jackal, but way better looking/sounding and with more interesting perspectives and such - probably not a coincidence that one of the playable characters is named Jackal, haha.

It might be a little easy for a This Is A Run, though? I managed to beat the game by myself on my third try (although maybe I picked an easy route? I went through Valley and then switched to Mountain halfway through)

Robocop versus Terminator. I can't recall if it's two-player (I don't think it is), but come on, it's right up Dan's alley.

I remember it kicking our arses.

NES Double Dragon 2 would be perfect. It takes about the right amount of time to play through, the mechanics are simple but take practice to master, the environments are varied, it has some of the best music on the NES, and the platforming sections will add a lot of nice drama.

@captain_insano: Yeah, the reason I said what I said is because my brother and I always struggled with Golden Axe when we first got it. Fast forward a couple of years and a lot of Streets of Rage/Streets of Rage 2 runs and experience, we decided to play it again and breezed through it.
