    Aww no Cadillacs and Dinosaurs. Street Fighter II will keep me busy for some time though!

    Would be great to have Joust back. Midway used to have it as free to play via browser until they went under, been missing it

    Archive.org is such a cool website I've found loads of cool stuff on there. Anyone found any good arcade games in this collection that they never got to play on a home console back in the days? I want to try out some of the ones I'm not familiar with - any suggestions?

    Hang-On isn't particularly speedy or responsive, but it was still fun to watch my character go flying and the motorbike explode.

    Ghouls 'N Ghosts seems to work pretty well.

    Played a few last night.
    I sucked at them back then and I suck at them now!!

    Would have been nice to have sound, as well.

    Yeah I found that, wasn't sure if it was all games though.

    Commando was fun and reminded me how frustrating it is to die in the first 20 seconds of a game

    I found you had to start the game first, press the button to unmute once it had loaded, then use the back button before trying any games as the sound would work from then onwards (just not when selected before or during a game).
