What was your favorite arcade game, now online?

Daniel GuzmanJan 24, 2022, 8:20 PM

I'm obsessed with playing Pac-Man and Tetris on the Nintendo Switch. I really get why they had tournaments for these games.

Mónica FreitasJan 25, 2022, 11:48 AM

Daniel Guzman, those games never die. They're so simple but so addictive for some reason!

AbeerJan 25, 2022, 1:42 PM

My favorite arcade game was definitely House of the Dead. I can’t wait until the remake comes out of the Switch. I’m hoping it stays true to its light gun roots.

Mines Rampage, I love that game. And they made a movie out of it. I hope they give it a remake!

Abeer, a zombie fan! Have they announced when they'll be releasing it?

Mónica FreitasJan 26, 2022, 11:13 AM

Jack Boreham, there's a version of Rampage for PS4, right? Have you played it?

Sara PintoJan 26, 2022, 1:07 PM

Mónica Freitas, the cafes in my hometown had Mortal Kombat. Since I was pretty young, I'm not sure if I actually played it or if I just saw the previews and still hit the buttons hahaha. I still liked it, and it was one of the few arcades games I got to play with. Unfortunately, I only played a few times on PS2, I think, but it was pretty cool.

Jack BorehamJan 27, 2022, 11:26 AM

Mónica Freitas, is THERE!!

Jack BorehamJan 27, 2022, 11:26 AM

That's new news for me, hahah.

Mónica FreitasJan 27, 2022, 8:57 PM

Sara Pinto, oh I played Mortal Kombat too! There were only two arcade games in the cafe near my house: Mortal Kombat and Majon.
Majon was usually taken, so I spent all my time learning how to make my character fight. A lot of times it was me just pressing all the keys 😂

Jack Boreham, I can't believe I just gave a gamer a piece of gaming news 😂

Mónica FreitasJan 27, 2022, 8:59 PM

Jack Boreham, I thought you knew 😂

Jack BorehamJan 27, 2022, 8:59 PM

Do you have a trailer? 😂

Mónica FreitasJan 27, 2022, 9:02 PM

Lemme get it for you (it's a remaster so I'm not sure how similar it is to the original).

Mónica FreitasJan 27, 2022, 9:02 PM

Jack Boreham

Jack BorehamJan 27, 2022, 9:03 PM

Mónica Freitas, that trailer is for a ps3 version haha

Jack BorehamJan 27, 2022, 9:04 PM

No ps4 😭

Mónica FreitasJan 27, 2022, 9:08 PM

YouTube has fooled me for the last time. I'll try to get you a ps4 trailer.

Sara PintoJan 28, 2022, 10:59 PM

Mónica Freitas, I can relate 😂

Mónica FreitasJan 31, 2022, 11:49 AM

Sara Pinto struggles of the 2000s 😂
