Games that totally should be in Game Room

This will probably be dominated by 90's Capcom Brawlers and Fighters, since that's what I played in the arcades.

List items

  • The controls might be a bit hard to replicate on the 360 (for instance, the steering sticks could be twisted to point your guns up or down in the arcade), but S.T.U.N. Runner was a lot of fun to play.

  • Interesting that this is out as an XBLA release, but not available in the Game Room. It seems like a natural fit. Speaking of which, why not integrate all former XBLA arcade games into the Game Room?

  • I have a special place in my heart for Capcom's brawlers. Knights of the Round was tough, but fun. It also allowed you to be equitable with your friends. If you hit an item (bags of gold, food, etc.) it split into multiple smaller items that you could share with your friends.

  • Cadillacs and Dinosaurs has a few new ideas added to the Final Fight formula, but it really stands out in its presentation. It was based on a short-lived cartoon and comic book.

  • And by this, I mean the two-player Capcom brawler from the mid 90's. You could play as either one of two cyborg Marines, a Predator Hunter, or a Predator warrior. Each character had their own attacks, strengths, and weaknesses.

  • This was a fairly obscure Capcom fighter, based on the same hardware that ran Street Fighter 3. However, it more closely resembled Darkstalkers, as the character sprites were bizarre and very unique. I don't remember a ton about this game, except that one character fought with a car. A fucking CAR!

  • Alright, Capcom, now you're speakin' my language! I love DnD, I love brawlers, and I don't care who knows it. Though it's light on narrative (for a DnD game), it's extremely fun. As you fight, your characters level up and gain new skills. It was very well animated and played pretty fast. One of Capcom's best.

  • 6-player madness on XBLA would be so awesome.

  • This game was so much fun.

  • Permanent big head mode.

  • This was an odd spy-themed side scrolling action game.

  • Fairly pedestrian side-scrolling action game. However, about half way through you get an armored suit with a gatling gun and missiles and shit.

  • Yeah, it's a Pac-Man clone, but I still love it. One of the first games that I ever played.
