    Hi Guys,

    Just installed Mame and a few games, and I was wondering what other games people would recommend for a top 20 list

    Obviously Gauntlet and galaxians has to be in there somewhere

    hmm I'll shamelessly highjack this thread!

    The best mame game EVAR!!!1 is definitely Gradius 3 =D

    This game is soooo hard, and having unlimited moneys won't make it any easier! It is sooo well thought, I think I have spent months playing only this.


    now my problem is that it's way to "new" to be on our mame emulator.

    Thus my hijacking and my asking of a question that's probably been answered a thousand time: Why is it that we can only run 0.34 roms? (or whatever that version number was)

    You can flame me as long as you also answer the question =P hehehe

    In no particular order, here are some of the mame games I play the most.

    Poyon
    Mappy
    son son
    Rally X
    Tag Team Wrestling
    snow bros
    Crash
    Bust a move
    dkong 3
    gng
    mspacman
    Super Basketball (but I don't think that works on gp2x)
    Mr. Do
    Mr. DO Run! RUn!
    Crush Roller
    Eagle (kind of like Galaxian and with stackable guns)

    Lots of others and I'm sure I've complete forgotten ones I play frequently as well.

    Because of later versions need more processing power and would have compatibility problems ; so a version that would work stable and at decent speed was ported ; or something like that if I remember correctly

    Well ; about the games ; I can count hundreds of them ; but for the 0.34 version ; I don't know much except classics such as galaga and pac man

    In no order, but late just the same:

    Son Son
    Donkey Kong
    Puzzle Bobble (Bust a Move)
    Qix
    Zoo Keeper
    Magic Sword
    Gyruss
    Frogger
    Kick

    Now, my reasons are different from most of you I think. I own about 15 real arcade video games. I have some of these games and have had some in the past. It's a shame that some games just can't be played on this hardware because of controls and such - Star Wars is an amazing real arcade machine but MAME just doesn't feel right without a flight controller (and a real vector monitor).
