    Also anything with a really unique cab like say the deluxe Outrun cab (the proper one with full movement not the common or garden sit down driving one) or Afterburner cab. Not so much S.T.U.N. Runner or Hang-On even though they were good I didn't like them as much as Outrun or Afterburner. Also Sega Rally 2 cab (moving) and even Daytona when playing multiplayer!!

    Oh and a little fave I'd forgotten, Wardner - this was a really great Wonderboy/Ghouls clone, I agree with the above Shinobi comment - ridiculously good game!

    Ninja Combat? (neo geo game)

    My local had a 4 game neo geo system and regularly changed the games around. Was awesome, loved king of the monsters, world heros, fatal fury etc..

    Loved the original SF 2 - the world warriors, they got it right the first time :p

    If you play it now, the game is so slow compared to all the super duper editions it's so much easier and strategic :)

    Then theres a whole bunch of games that i can't remember the names of because it was so long ago. One vertical scrolling shooter game, where you get power ups that are extra guns. The guns change red/blue/green i think before you pick them up and depending on what colour determined if the turret was fixed or moved around.

    One not mentioned is Elevator Action. Used to only need 40c to keep me going for the whole day. Never did finish all the 30 levels, got too complicated for a 12 year old. Another one is Gyruss.

    I used to love this game. I played it more on my ol' C64 though. Same with Gyruss. I used to always giggle when you'd be travelling to Uranus. :p
