      I don't really like this genre, I like action games I don't really like this genre, I like action games more. My friend is a fan of such games. He loves the Limbo game very much. He downloaded it from http://unlockedpiratebay.com/ even when it came out, and he occasionally likes to play it. Without any background and plot, Limbo holds firmly to the screen. But this is not just a sketch of the vestibule of hell, but a full-fledged game with a lot of puzzles. After death, the hero appears right in front of a fatal trap or an insurmountable cliff at first glance, in order to immediately try a new way or guess.

          I grew up during the 80s, so I played a ton of the classic ones.

          I really got good at a few like Gunsmoke (a scrolling shooter) and WWF WrestleFest. I liked Punch-Out! too. Since the characters just repeat and they only get to a certain speed, I could play that one until I'd get bored and walk away. I liked Defender and Asteroids, but I never got really good at those. Defender is one of the harder games out there. The 6-person X-Men is fun too, no matter how many people play.

          I remember when fighting games started. Street Fighter 1 wasn't anything special. I remember for like a week after it came out it would have a group of kids around it. People mostly played it to beat the game, the vs mode was so clunky and awkward few played it. Street Fighter 2 was crazy. It was packed up with dudes from the day it came out. Hardly no one played to beat that one, it was almost all vs games. I never was too good at them, but my buddy was. He'd rarely lose. He'd even bet money on games sometimes.

          It was a fun time.

          In Austin now there's quite a few. One is a chain, and they have 3 arcades. One is like an old arcade, the other 2 locations have stuff like go-Karts, lazer tag, etc in there too. They are huge and have large arcade areas. There's also a few small ones and couple of those new style arcades that cater to adults and serve food and have full bars. Pinball is alot more popular than it was back then though. You see alot of pinball machines in arcades, while when I was a kid you never saw them in arcades. You'd see them in bars or convenience stores mostly. I never played pinball back then, but as an adult I play it quite alot. I like that it's a different set of skills required than the skills you use for video games.

            Also beat WWF Wrestlefest that same day. Ultimate Warrior and Mr. Perfect was my team.

            I still love playing Final Final, Double Dragon, and Streets of Rage games on my NES classic.

            Also liked that Xmen arcade game. I downloaded it for my PS3 when I had it.
            Perfect sucked on Royal Rumble mode.

            You had to have guys that either did body slams or could flip a running opponent so you could get them out of the ring fast enough to have a shot at winning. He did neither. Million Dollar Man was the same way too. I typically played as Jake the Snake and my buddy as Warrior when he was around. Both of them did bodyslams and the flip move. We'd play Royal Rumbles and almost always be the last 2 left.

            I have this game on an emulator and still play it occasionally. I was looking at an original cabinet a few years ago at an auction, but it went for way too much. One of my favorite arcade games.

            X-Men and Final Fight were great ones too. Fun co-op games you could play with friends and random dudes at the arcade.

              I didn't play Royal Rumble mode too much, I usually played tag team mode.

              I would love to get an original cabinet at some point. Saw one for around $4000 on Ebay. Maybe some day I'll get one.

              I miss the arcade glory days, but thankfully barcades exist.

                      WrestleFest is still popular. People buy the actual arcade version for their home.
