    Yeah, there's at least two other barcades but there's just one I went to regularly. I believe it's been reopend for months, need to go down there again.

    The Wrestlemania arcade game was fun too, even though it was more of Mortal Kombat type fighting game instead of a traditional wrestling game. I had the PS version before and now I have Genesis emulator version on my NES classic.

    The one thing I didn't like about Wrestlefest was that they didn't have Macho Man in it. And you couldn't play as Legion of Doom either even though they were final bosses pretty much.
    Oh yeah. I guess because Macho Man must have lost that retirement match to Warrior at the time. Superstars gets super difficult the last 2-3 matches. I read in emulators you can use Legion of Doom. They're supposed to have twice as much health, 2 health bars, even in the Royal Rumble match. Double Dragon 3 was way better in the arcade as well because you can go into shops and buy stuff, like weapons, extra characters to use for extra lives and health. Or just use those extra quarters for continues. And the final boss is supposed to be Cleopatra, not a possessed Marian, like in the NES version. Still pretty weird either way.

    Oh man, you have a Barcade by you? All the ones here in New York are in the city and not in the suburbs for some reason, which sucks. The original one is in Brooklyn, which I went to once. They had the original WWF Superstars, which I finally beat with the Mega Powers, Hogan and Savage. So you beat Crime Fighters, but never the Konami follow up, Vendetta? I loved that one because all the characters actually looked different and had different fighting styles, like in Final Fight. They even had a wrestler character that looked like Hulk Hogan and did an elbow drop, instead of just kicking downed enemies. They made the bonus level a little easier too, with only fighting bosses and mini bosses a few at a time, instead of all at once too, like you can see in that youtube video.

    Wrestlefest I beat back when it originally came out. Used to use Hogan and Warrior, but eventually my favorite team became Dibiase and Jake the Snake because their finishers were the quickest and easiest to do. Dibiase would do a quick choke hold submission that would take a few seconds to get the win with if the opponent was worn down enough and Roberts would quickly take down the opponent with the DDT for a quick pin when you had someone beat. No waiting for any longer animations to run around or jump on top of anyone. The Royal Rumble aka Saturday Night's Main Event mode was fun too, since you could win by pinfall or submission as well in that one.
    You guys ever make out to Vegas, on google maps check out High Scores Bar, Area 15, Pinball Hall of Fame

    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.

Vendetta took Crime Fighters and turned it up to 11. You had a wrestler that looked like Hulk Hogan, a martial arts guy that looked like a young Chuck Norris and fought like Van Damme, a boxer that looked like Holyfield a mohawked brawler looking like either a white Mr. T or later a young Chuck Liddell. The other cool thing was all 4 guys had 2 special moves, one standing and one you could do in mid air when you pushed all 3 buttons.

    Also liked Double Dragon, Double Dragon 2 and 3, X-Men game was fun. ROOOOOAR people loved doing the yell when Colossus did his special move and "NOTHING moves the BLOB" lol.

    Besides fighting games(SF, Mortal Kombat, Tekken, Capcom vs), these were the ones I played a lot at the arcade(too bad today's "arcades" aren't like they were back then). I liked Final Fight, The Simpsons, TMNT and of course X-Men.

    My co worker actually had Captain America and the Avengers in her house, but I actually preferred Punisher over that one.
