Streetfighter 2 is THE greatest arcade game of all time !

Man i remember in the late 80's / early 90's this game was EVERYWHERE !

Chippy's , local little supermarkets , video shops , bowling alley's , social clubs .... EVERYWHERE !

The greatest in my time & opinion anyway !

Must give a mention to 'final fight' , 'king of the fighters '96' 'wwf royal rumble' & 'killer instinct' though !

Awesome games & they still rock !

yes mate ez as pie !
the CD32 didn't have copy protection
so you can use any CD-R and as most oldskool games pre 96
was less then MegaByte you can fit thousands on 1 cd !
Install a 2.5" HD and your well away. To make the menu screen / game selection
its just a basic workbench app that you would place in the start up folder.

I think the opposite. I had a PS1 and PS2 but this gen I got an Xbox 360. One of things I really like about the Xbox 360 are the controllers, in fact, I like them so much I don't think I could go back the PS now.

It's all about them trigger buttons for FPS and driving games.

I concur. The Xbox 360 controller is the most comfortable and natural to use, and as you can see from my post above I've used a few. ;) It truly is the top of the evolutionary chain for controllers.

All still work mate, with the exception of the Atari 2600 Woody, not sure what's up with that. They're all boxed apart from a couple of the Gameboys, the two Playstations and some of the peripherals.

Some lesser-known awesome early Playstation games (original console):

Jumping Flash
Tail of the Sun (DON'T read the instructions before you play, it makes a big difference!!!)
Motor Toon Grand Prix (head to head with two TVs and link cable makes this one of the better racing games of all time, with kickass track layout and physics in a cartoony package)
Worms
Battle Arena Toshinden (battle mechanics were topnotch, including the defense)
PaRappa the Rapper (the rapping onion ruled!)


Twisted Metal was excellent but well known

Fucking Worms! :lol: I still remember the day I discovered it. I was working at Sony Playstation support on a Friday afternoon and I'd gotten bored of most of the other games, so I grabbed this one from the library (we were expected to play games between calls). I played it for two hours, got off work and went directly to Toys R Us to buy it, then went home and played for another 15 hours straight. I got about four hours sleep, woke up and played for another uninterrupted 14 hours.

Then I went to work Monday morning and played all that day.


I did something similar when we got some pre-release copies of Wipeout, except that time I went to Costco and bought a surround sound stereo system on the way home so I could get the full effect of the game. Took about ten minutes of the metal-scraping-the-walls sound effects and pounding Prodigy beats for my neighbor to come pounding on my door...
