I am 32 (getting old). I can't remember what age I started but the Sega Master System was my first console. I was totally hooked for a long time on Alex Kidd in Miracle World. My brother had a Nes and I bought a Megadrive and Snes. I played Streetfighter 2 on the Snes constantly for a very long time.

Then I sold all my consoles and games (except my Neo) and for quite a few years only played PC games especially Heroes of Might and Magic 2 and 3 and also Morrowind. Today I only play PC and Neo Geo games. These systems complement each other perfectly I think. Recently I have thought of buying either a Saturn or a Dreamcast but I am not sure which one to go for.


I've owned both the DC and the Saturn and they are both worth owning.

I would say if youre really into good Sega arcade ports like Crazy Taxi, Daytona etc then go for the DC as that seems to be its strong point, if you love 2D games then definitly grab a Saturn [ the import CPS D&D games rock on the Saturn ] as I think its hard to beat for 2D provided you like the games available.

I say grab then both at some point, they are both worth a look. I dont really miss either of them but I definitly enjoyed having them when I did. Wink

I'll drink to that. Frogger was badass!
I, personally, was more of a Dig-Dug, Joust, Robotron man myself though. heh Anybody ever play a little gem called Archon (not on the NES, that version sucked)? It's probably my favorite game bar none.

From there to my Commodore 64, Amiga & then to my master system - loved that my fave game was *something* in wonderland or monster-land (someone help me here smiley )


Hey Mitch,
Are you thinking of Wonder Boy in Monster Land? Grin

I played Archon to death on the C64, along with other EA gems like Mail Order Monsters, Pinball Construction Set and Racing Destruction Set [probably one of the reasons ExiteBike never thrilled me when It came out]. The good old pre Capitalistic EA when gameplay ruled above all Wink

Whoa, I totally forgot about the Pinball Construction Set. And you have my eternal respect for being an Archon fan.
What was the name of the karate game with 3 fighters at the same time? They were white, blue, and red. International Karate or something like that. That was killer too.

Dont remember the name but I remember the game, Im pretty sure it was a Data East game ? ... I played alot of Karate Champ back then Wink

I think the first fighting based game that had a huge impact on me was Jordan Mechner's Karateka Ninja Karateka was probably the first game that I considered a playable work of art, even today the animations look amazing.

Definitly the first game ever scripted like a motion picture that I know of, and probably one of the few to ever pull it off correctly. Great game !

PooTube Karateka Vid here, unfortunitly there is no sound :evil:

There were a few cool karate games on the c64. Way of the Exploding Fist and the International Karate games were great. The one with the three guys is IK+ (which was the sequel to International Karate).

awesome!

I never did play that but it does look like it was a good game. Very impressive animation for 1984. Wasn't Jordan Mechner the guy who made Prince of Persia? (another classic!)

IK+/Way of the Exploding Fist for teh win! Both games were/are friggin awesome! Grin

I still play IK+ now and then when I want a laugh, especially multiplayer. Press "T" on the keyboard while in the middle of a fight on the Amiga version, it's fun! Wink

Yes Mechner was the one who created Prince of Persia, right around the same time period I believe. Its too bad the sound is so poor in that video, its missing probably 60% of whats supposed to be there.

Its like half of the actual tones are missing, definitly a non complete c64 emu dump, its a shame really beacuse the game is so uncomplete without its true musical score, which isprobably 70% of why it comes off as a movie style presentation.

I know there are perfect emu dumps for the C64 version floating around, that is also the most superior of all the versions should you feel the urge to give one a go.

Yeah, I've played Karateka and Way of the Exploding Fist (and the sequel). Not too much of the former but the latter in copious amounts. Great stuff. Thanks for posting the pics. They bring back real good memories.
