So you never got to play that favourite 8-bit Atari game or always wondered how your score would compare with the Atari world's gaming greats (!) or never saw any game you wanted to play in the HSC votes... well now's your chance to suggest the games for next season :)

Games, bonus rounds, doubles rounds, ideas, comments on scoring, format (currently 1 game every 2 weeks), petition to bring back JellE and poobah, you name it we want to hear it... post away folks :)

To get things started here's my first list (links optional):

Classic Games
Pooyan *
Millipede
Qix

Games Never Played in HSC *
Scooter
The Extirpator
Fire Fleet
River Rat
Ninja Master
Whirlinurd (combine scores from levels A-E.)

Newer? Games
Tube Baddies
CTetris 4e
:)

Some ideas - I currently drop the lowest (and winning game) vote from the poll, but could have each person suggest the full vote list for each round - that way you can always have one of your's selected :ponder:

Nice list M. Bug Off was one of the early games I remember playing, with no autofire it's a real physical test! I think there was a joystick version of Thrust too. Keep the ideas coming folks :thumbsup:

Wouldn't it be extermely cool to play WORM (NERM) OF BEMER (a basic game!)?

That's really a fabulous game in basic, and it has everything in it to be a HSC game!

Hehe I have had lots of fun with it :D

we could all make a pic, and the display them... each person get 3 votes, for the ones they like best (cant vote for your own), and count up the votes!

then maybe some would have a chance of kicking some arse of that guy who dominates the scoring so much...

sloopy.

I knew he'd find my other weakness along with Mountain King (don't ask Gwobby or Mopchop about some of my early 8-bit pictures) ;) Think I'm more worried about atariksi for next season, he's been on a roll recently. Would like to see Fandal and poobah in for a full term too but I know they're busy :P

Another few for the list
Aquatron
Serpentine
Panther
SuperWurm
Water Ski School II
Galactic Chase
Desmonds Dungeon
Genesis
NYC

Bat n Ballers:
Ataroid
Arkanoid II (Rambit?)
Technoid
Super Breakout
Sqoid II
:D

also an idea for a bonus round, take 5 of the most horrible games you can find, you know they kind... not games that are trash, but games that are full on Garbaggio (rhymes with arpeggio)... one where you stop playing and you havnt even used all your men...

:cool: Nice to see you back Deteacher. If you or anyone else want to jump into a car, pole position has a couple of teams needing a driver ;)

Keep the suggestions for next season coming folks :thumbsup: Hey atariksi if you put in a few of your favourites it might even things out a bit too ;)

Add to my list Sea Dragon, Juno First, Blaster and what about Warhawk (though playing it will break my joystick (or arm) - does that work on NTSC too :?:

p.s. Is that sleigh bells I hear :ponder:

About Qix (startpost TRBB)

This game is EXTREMELY COOL but.....

It is not so fun in Emulator. The stix is making a lot harder moves on real hardware. Compared to emulator... it looks different, feels different, and is definately easier on emulator.

So that will get us another emulator vs real hardware issue.

I really LOVE qix... perhaps a real hardware only competition on that one?

Last time we played QIX I did ok using real hardware so don't think this is a problem, there's not that many of us in total so better we can all play wherever possible! Hope to attract additional new atari and non atari players in future :)

Add to my list Conan Hall of Volta (never did beat that), Fire Chief, Diamonds, Dan Strikes Back, Bellum :cool:

Yeah, we need some real classics here to even things out-- Ms. Pac-man, Hero, Miner 2049er (or BBSB), Frogger, Joust, and Centipede.
