    Thank you for pointing out the distinction. There was a time when you had to go to the arcade to see impressive graphics. These are two great examples of how much more advanced arcade video games were than home systems.

    Basically every arcade version of a game was superior in graphics and game play to any home version until the Playstation era.

    The Nintendo Rygar was a completely different game and not very good. The arcade Rygar was just pure fun, especially once you got the power-up to put the blade through multiple enemies. I remember what a PITA the final boss in the Nintendo version was, throwing tiny things all over the screen that could kill you. I believe I only one with the magical 'slow' button on the joystick that really just paused and unpaused over and over and over.

    Nintendo Gauntlet was just an insult. I played with the Valkyrie in the arcade since she was the balanced character. That machine would eat quarters like nobody else. Ninja Turtles I used the guy with the staff since he had good range.

    You can shake my hand at a Kings game if you want.

    USC's picture on the previous page makes me want to take my own shot of my huge pile of games I have yet to play. I added AC4 (which goes to the top of the queue once GTA V is platinum), the recent God Of War (second in the queue), The Last Of Us, and the recent Splinter Cell. Good thing I don't have to buy a PS4 until Uncharted 4 comes out.

    The darknut at the end of level 3 was a pisser as I recall. Biggest thing I remember about replaying this game later was it was incredibly hard to get the hand eye coordination to actually block with your shield. Absolutely need that in this game or you can't beat the shadow at the end

    Fav Arcade Games:
    Tempest (I PWNED this game. If there was a machine within 100 miles of the IE from 1981-84, you saw "RDN" at the top of the leader board. Would love to buy an old machine for the cave.)
    Galaga
    Black Tiger
    Star Wars (the sit down version)
    Dig Dug
    Zaxxon
    Defender
    Altered Beast
    Contra
    Russian (renamed Rush'n) Attack
    1942
    Asteroid

    The first RPG I became obsessed with was Pitfall on 2600 and then Advanced Dungeons and Dragons on Intellivision. After that it was all Zelda, all day, all the time.

    I inherited an Intellivision system when I was a kid, haha, I feel so old.

    The controls looked more like remote controls than anything else. Haha! And it had a hockey game, lol, but it was more pixels than anything else.

    Eventually, somewhere down the line, I want to put something like this together.
