Video System
1983parrothead
Video System started with a hentai mahjong arcade game titled Ojanko Yakata in 1986, then a year later, their first hit was Rabio Lepus (known outside of Japan as Rabbit Punch), but in 1991 and 1992, they became best known for the F1 Grand Prix and especially the Sonic Wings / Aero Fighters franchises. Their best known games are some on the Neo-Geo and N64, probably because of the Neo-Geo fans, while the N64 ones often overpack used books and media stores. Shortly between the release dates of Aero Fighters 1 and 2, the creators of the first game left Video System to establish Psikyo, while Video System continued producing the Aero Fighters titles. Manabu Namiki of Cave (formally NMK) paid respect to Psikyo by naming one of the songs in DoDonPachi Dai-Ou-Jou after them, but not Video System for some reason. In 2004, their final game Sukusuku Inufuku was released shortly after Hamster bought them. Today, Sonic Wings Special can be found on Google Play.

Thanks for the info Parrothead. I like these developer threads. There are still a few games I haven't tried including Rabio Lepus but from what I've played so far I'd say Video System were not that great a developer.

I know a few people here like it but I still say Power Spikes 2 is the worst Neo Geo game. Truly an abomination. Their attempt at a fighting game, Tao Taido, is also very poor with some strange looking characters and awkward gameplay.

The Sonic Wings games are good but I can think of lots of vertical shooters that are better. The characters are appealing though and Sonic Wings 2 has some of the funniest 'Engrish' of any arcade game. Another Video System vertical shooter worth a look is Turbo Force which actually has a simultaneous 3 player option which is pretty fun.

Karate Blazers is probably my favourite Video System game. Not amazing but I rather
like it especially when playing in 4 player mode.
