My Top 10 fav retro games of all time here in no particular order:
Ghosts n Goblins (Arcade)
Ghouls n Ghosts (Arcade)
Dracula X Rondo of Blood (TurboDuo)
Final Fight (Arcade)
Ninja Gaiden 2 (NES)
Sunset Riders (Arcade)
Although I do like the ports of these games, they aren't in my top favorites due to overall changes or "game destroyed due to hardware sucks" issues.
Gauntlet is a favorite but not top 10 for me. Not enough color and speed for my caffeinated brain anymore.
I might be from the 70's but I never cared for Atari aside of a few games. I was an Intellivision kid. Burger Time and Tron Deadly Discs get an honorable mention for that system. I still play them on the real hardware!
