    Talking Your Favourite Arcade Game?

    This is my latest article on my website for sunday 11th january:

    PUNCH MANIA:

    THE FIST OF THE NORTH STAR



    This is probably mankinds deadliest arcade machine yet most brilliant interactive game. Ive played stuff like Police 24/7 and dancemania but nothing has ever tired me out in the arcades more then this devil, yet the punching pads remain to look so innocent and heavenly. I stil have memories of me, my bro and cousins each taking turns on this and then getting back off it a totaly pissed off and sweating anger beast with dead arms! It was kind of funny cuz everytime it was ur turn to get up there on the machine we would take off our jackets as if we were going into a more den real fight with some1.

    All six pads come out and you have to punch them and time it to the lights on the pads. Then when you fight the boss the pads start going alot faster. If you do good enough you get to finish him with a badass combo, which basically means you have like 15 seconds to get 40 hits in, then a cool cinematic of your opponents head blowing up appears!

    Everytime someone mentions arcades, i remember that machine! This actually got me really intrested in the whole Fist Of the North star tv series n stuff aswell which i must say is brilliant. This truely got me back into going to the arcades! This game is definetly a 10 out of 10 for me.

    Thats my favourite...if it aint urs...Whats Yur Flava???
    Feel free to either reply wid ur favourite arcade game by entering a comment on the website or by simply replying here at movie-list either choice is okay with me

    My favorite used to be the Aliens Vs Predator side-scrolling game. That was the one where you could have a couple people choosing one of 2 humans or 2 predators. Then you would run around slashing aliens or shooting them.

    It was great.
    If you can stay calm, while all around you is chaos...then you probably haven't completely understood the seriousness of the situation.

    I've played <b>Fist Of The North Star</b>, it was OK but got boring way to fast. What's the name of the Ninja game where the controler is a sword? That one's my favourite!!!

    You're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you, but you can't be sure. But it doesn't matter - because we'll be together.

    The sniper one! where 60 ppl line up to play it and its like a total waste of time but you do it anyways cause you wanna see what everyone is lining up for and when you get there you find out that the scope on the sniper rifle is USELESS cause the big facking screen gives you the crosshairs and if you spot the babe in the bikini you get stuff. God, I love that game.

    I believe that is Silent Scope, most notable for a bloody huge sniper rifle lightgun pointed at the screen.

    silent Scope is kinda neat, but the Time Crisis games are much better.
