    For me they would be (in no particular order):

    * Double Dragon
    * Turtles (4 player)
    * Ironman Stewarts Off Road Racer
    * Bubble Bobble
    * Daytona USA


    I'm interested to see how peoples choices on here differ from the BP forum :) It's time for some people to really show their age ;)

    Yeah, always loved Segas stuff :) It's a bit rough coz at the end of the day they played a part in the arcades demise. Think back to the 80/90s, every town had at least one arcade full of the latest games, now look...all full of fruit machines. As home consoles began to get more advanced there was less of a reason for people to out and spend all their 10ps, when they could play at home for as long as they wanted.

    Yeah New Zealand Story was a top game, although didn't really discover it until it came out on the Amiga.

    All about 4 player Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I have the 4 player machine in my sister garage ;) Only cost me a few squid as well back in 94. I keep meaning to flog it, but just don't have the heart to lose it as my nephews still play it.

    Best 5 games in no order, cos if you ask this question next week it will be a diffrent set ;)

    Street Fighter II (Original one. None of that hyper fighting crap ;) )
    4 Player TMNT
    Robocop
    Shinobi
    Golden Axe

    Tho Sunset Raiders & Ghouls 'n' Ghosts still get kaned on M.A.M.E big time
