I could never figure out the Mahjong games!
I had a Mahjong game on my ps1 years and years ago. Played loads of it. It may have been a Net Yaroze game, can't remember!
Darius Gaiden is also on MAME. Don't bother with G-Darius on Mame. Amazing game and all but there's no music and the music in that game is amazing and a shame it's missing.
Mahjong games are excellent. I'd love to look in to getting a Mahjong CP for my cabinet. Not too common though unfortunately.
Wait a minute! When I was at your beers you made me and Aug play G Darius from start to finish in MAME and wouldn't let us stop. It was running at about 8fps! And we'd just completed a run through of Raiden before!!
It was too much fun watching you guys play the game not knowing how to beam battle which made the boss battles last 30 minutes at a time
It was also fun to see their faces when Raiden just looped back to the start after pumping 500 million credits into it.
Heh, I remember you pming me when I got home that night.
'What was that game you guys were playing?!!?!'
And an obsession was born
Apart from street fighter alpha 3, street fighter 2 turbo, super street fighter 2 turbo, and street fighter third strike, which make up about 75% of my retro gaming (i heart streetfighter) I like to play these:
Ghosts and goblins
Metal slug (any of them)
Mortal kombat 2
Miss Pac man
There are lots more, but these are the ones that instantly spring to mind as "must play" classics.
What I ended up doing is sending myself an email to gmail with List of Games to play,
ones I remembered playing years ago or found in Mame,
or if all of sudden find some great game while youtubing or on forums, I add it to the list.
I also have YouTube Favourites List of just Arcade Videos, well handy...
