Games You Missed At The Time
Games You Missed At The Time

What games did you miss when you were younger and only discovered when you were an adult? I'm not talking about games you just enjoyed playing when you tried them - but games you *really* enjoyed playing!


For me: Space Harrier. I only played it twice (it was expensive!) in an arcade in the 80s and died really quickly and after that just played a demo of the ZX Spectrum version a few times. I thought nothing of it. I discovered it properly in the Arcade in Dobuita in Shenmue. I later got versions for my 3DS and 3DS XL and Saturn. Such a great game. I want to get a stand-up cab one day.

Also I have to say Metal Slug, Mark of the Wolves, Breaker's Revenge, Blazing Star on Neo Geo! Never played a Neo Geo until I bought one on EBay maybe in 2006. I'd seen and had a very quick go on AOF and League Bowling running on a MVS in a cafe I used to go to in 1994, but that was it.

Another one is Zarch (Virus) for Acorn Archimedes. The Archimedes cost over £1000 (£2000 in today's money) in 1987 for a full system. No chance I could afford that. I absolutely love this game now. It's a proper skill game, the first time I played - I died in 2 seconds.

And... Robotron 2084. Never saw it in the arcade. Literally never played it until I got it on Midway Arcade Classics on the original Xbox. Was amazing to discover it. It's one of my favourite arcade games now. I want to get a cab of this too.

I have yet to play games like Super Metroid, Yoshi's Island, Super Contra, Castlevania 4, Mario 64 properly. Really looking forward to it.

One that comes in mind is Probotector for the Mega Drive. I have been reading the review on Mean Machines Sega for a million times and admiring the screenshots!

I missed it though...
