            I remember MK cause there was a movie, but perhaps Street Fighter was just like it? Its not ringing a bell. After I hit about 16 or so (Super Ninetndo) I only paid attention to psorts games and I haven't been in an arcade in even longer a time.....so I have no idea what kind of games there are unless they are sports related.

              ok, street fighter. ken and ryu? blanka, the electric guy? there was a SF movie too, but it sucked. ahhh, nevermind. The sad thing is, in the arcade over here ( yes, we have ONE arcade) there are NO sports games, unless you happen to count crazi taxi as a sport. all we have is shoot em ups, fighting games, a pinball machine or two, and (ugh) the dancing game, which takes about 1/4 of the arcade space. its pathetic

                No crazy climber or Elevator action? I'm a child of the 80's work with me here.

                Mortal Kombat was up there among the best, like it a lot more than Street Fighter.

                  Area 51 for Playstation, that game was so much fun and still is today. Also NBA Jam, I had that game for Super Nintendo, I still got it.

                    I almost went with House of the Dead. I loved that game when it first game out. It's one of those games where you cooperated with a friend to accomplish something. It reminds me of the old school Nintendo games (Contra, Jackal, Life Force, Rush 'N Attack, etc.) where you and a best friend (or your little brother if he annoyed the hell outta you) would team up to destroy evil aliens or just blow s*** up in general.

                    With that being said, I picked Street Fighter. I cannot possibly calculate how many hours I have played that game in my local arcade at the time. Ryu was cool, but Chun Li was my homegirl. It was the first game of it's kind that did it right (that's right, even before Mortal Kombat). It was a pioneer of fighting games, and it can't be ignored or forgotten.

                      Toss up between Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat, but I think MK has the edge.

                          Well I have to go with Daytona USA, I actually bought the steering wheel, gas pedal controller set

                          I must have this thing for racing games I guess.....hmmm

                          I really dont play them all that much though, it is one of the guys things I havent picked up on......I really dont have the time these days to even think about playing video games, anything past the nineties and I would have to answer based on what my son plays. He loves the football games, Madden, etc.....

                          Right now he has a thing for that Street Basketball game, he just got #2, but he isnt glued to the game, so Im happy about that, he would rather be outside playing any of the games in real life.
