  • Top 10 years of arcade gaming.

    Interesting read, but I'm sure there will be a few around here who could argue for some years they've missed in the article.

      I read the years and refuse to read any further. The fact that it even mentions years from the past 5 or 6 means that the article must have been written by a 10 year old know nothing. And WTF is up with not mentioning 1987 !?!



      1987 was the best year for video games. PERIOD. No compitition...
      Sega: After Burner 1 and 2, Thunder Blade, SDI, Wonderboy in Monster Land, Shinobi, Heavyweight Champ(In fact sega put out more games than that. thats just the best)
      Atari: APB, Road Blasters
      Taito: Rastan Saga, Flying Shark, Twin Cobra, Double Dragon (FFS !!!!), Bubble Bobble2 - Rainbow Islands, Arkanoid, Operation Wolf, Wardner, and more
      Nintendo: R-Type (FFS, RTYPE PEOPLE !!!)
      Capcom: Black Tiger, Tiger Road, Bionic Commando, Street Fighter (FFS, this game changed the ****ing world, you underpants wearing sissys !!!), and more

      Dare I continue !!!!!!!!!!!!!

      In fact, go to www.klov.com and choose any manufacturer, sort by year, and you will probably see that they peaked in 1987 !!!


      **** ya polls. There are 2 fundamental truths in this universe when it comes to history....\
      1)1984 was the best year for music and cinema
      2)1987 was the best year for video games (and the second best for music and cinema, too !!!)
      ...and thats that. Anyone who can come up with a "best years for video games" list and not even mention 1987 is a cocksmoker and should just pop their dads cock back in their mouths and be refused the right to speak ever again (let alone type a POS poll on the net)

      ...maybe, but then again "maybe" covers a lot of things, like: maybe Michael Jackson really is LaToya in drag, or maybe if Dorothy clicks her heels 3 times and says "There's no place like home" while she is at home, she would telefrag herself..." - MadMikeAU

          The sad part is that Quake2 is the best of the series, and the only one that looked like all people invovled worked on the same game. Excluding Quake4 aka Doom4, of course.

                  Vote 2 for R-Type, simply the best game ever made.

                    WTF?

                    Quake1 : A game where its sole purpose for existing is a multiplayer gimmick. The single player looks like 4 or 5 different games slkapped together. ie Gothic castle setting plus alien badguys plus semi modern weapons. Oh, and I hope you like brown because its about the only color in the pallet.

                    Quake2 : Single player was actually quite good. Cutting edge at the time, in fact. Looks like a well thought out game with excellent weapons. At the time, I thought it was in insult to call it Quake2. Doom3 was a more worthy title. But Doom was out and Quake was in. Marketing boys...pffft

                    Quake3Arena : Hello? Single player? Where are you? They took the best parts of Quake2 and pissed them off. They were replaced with eye candy and multiplayer qimmick worthy of the Quake brand. It was so rushed as only half the game was released.

                    Quake3TeamArena : The other half. Still no single player.

                    Quake4 : Simmilar in style to Quake2, but more like Doom3. LINEAR as a Fred Nile sunday mass.

                    See the trend? Just like the Star Trek movies, only every 2nd Quake game is worth playing in any capacity.

                        How did the list skip from 1982 to 1991? They missed out on the golden age of gaming. The mid to late 80's produced the best games; a time of lone coders with one musician. Unlike the multi-million dollar games of today, games in that era were simply fun to play.

                        I can't believe Galaga is not on the list but Tomb Raider 2 (trash) is.

                        I bet the authors are under 21's who have played some 1982 games on MAME.

                          Me and a mate used to get stuck into wolfenstein it was a great game. Later discovered the cheat which i think was holding M+I+L simultaneously

                            BAck in 1994, when I bought my first PC, the inclusion of Wolvenstien actually affected my purchase...and led to me first upgrade a week later (a Sound Blaster)

                              Don`t forget spear of destnty.. And the "jusuar" cheat from the TV show "War Games".I still have my original wolf 3D box! I bought a realy copy.. everyone else just copyed it (Not trying to take the morial high ground here

                              Goobers was the comand line for Wold 3d i think? for the cheats!

                              Duke nukim the patform level game was good. They included them all on the early Duke 3D CD's.

                              Don`t forget Simcity / SC2000 ...

                              Warcraft 1/2, and Command and Conque!!! I bet thats not on the list!!! Dune 2!

                              Not very well know but i think should be atleast played.. is "Wrath of earth" Its a 3d first person.. (for dos) but is more advance than Wolf 3D was...
