Does anybody have any memories, of playing some highly addictive, arcade machines?
I remember as a nipper, when after we had been swimming at the local leisure centre, we would play on 'Gauntlet II'. Luckily there was 4 of us, and we each had a control stick. Playing as Barbarian, Elf, Valkyrie and Wizard? fighting off endless, hordes of ghosts and monsters, seemed alot of fun back then.
When I first played Tekken in the arcades, I was wowed by it's in game, 3D models. It was amazing to see Kazuya performing those visually, stunning, looking spinning kicks. I put a fair few coins in that one.
Virtua Fighter 2 had me for a while too. Sarah and Kage were my favourites. The Ridge Racer booths were something special too, despite that annoying guy, that told you to 'Get Going!'. Im sure there was a 'Rave Racer'? but I never saw it come to the consoles. 'Rage Racer' i'm sure was a different track to RaveR.
I kind of got hooked on Time Crisis II aswell. I remember being in Blackpool, with friends and gfriend, and just wondering off to point that gun with recoil, at that big screen. My gf tried to pull me away but I was hooked!
'Terminator 2' had me in the same way, but not as bad as TC2. Then there was that imitation version of T2, called 'Mechanized Attack'. I never forgot the name, because some annoying, dalek sounding, voice would screech it out every 10 secs when no one was playing it. Awful, just like Pit Fighter.
