      Shinobi is one of my favorites! Nostalgia of so many pizza parlor trips.

        Golden Axe, Shinobi, and Altered Beast is as close to a perfect trifecta as I could get for that 80's arcade nostalgia trip! The other 2 would be Rampage (which 1UP already did) and 720° which will probably never happen due to the weirdo controller.

            Oh man you're right... damn it there's more than I thought.

            Double Dragon arcade was so superior to any other version of Double Dragon.

      God damn it another one I would love to have. I just can't justify the cost of any of them, though.

        I’m surprised they didn’t include alien syndrome. It’s basically golden axe in space.
