Ugh… again!?!?
couldn't we have played Space Harrier 3-D this time… It would be refreshing to play some different titles than the same games from last season… :ponder:

I didn't want to have to recycle a game, but lately we've had nothing but obscure games that no one except zylon and roadrunner own, and it's been making things kind of one-sided.

If I may offer a list of games that could be used for hi-score play…
(of note, these are also USA releases)

Action Fighter
Alien Syndrome
Altered Beast
Black Belt
Captain Silver
Casino Games (pinball)
Cloud Master
Enduro Racer
Fantasy Zone III: The Maze
Galaxy Force
Gangster Town (light gun)
Ghouls & Ghosts
Paperboy
Power Strike
Rastan
Rescue Mission (light gun)
Space Harrier 3-D (there is 2D mode)
Strider
Thunder Blade
Time Soldiers
Transbot
Vigilante
Wanted (light gun)
Zaxxon 3-D (has 2D mode)
Zillion II: The Tri Formation

most of these games are arcade ports and offer score centric play and most are commons and were all USA releases :)

Yeah, zylon and i are running away with the championship.
I'm picking zylon to repeat as champion. :)

Since there's no pranks this time, I'll really play then. ;) 3,125,960

Lately, it has seemed almost pointless to put much effort into these games, even though I promised a proper defense. It's like kicking a dead dog. Why don't we pick a few from Sonic's list a while? Maybe participation will pick up some. We're almost at the point where I don't even need to try. Just have to post something. I've even given out some free games to possibly add more contenders.
Sonic R usually presents a most worthy challenge when he has the game. :thumbsup: I wouldn't mind giving some of these a go. A few are extremely hard compared to their 16-bit counterparts. Another suggestion would be to get an emulator disc for a Dreamcast system. It's cheap and I've only noticed a 20%-30% decrease in my scores on some games when I've tried it.

Man, I used to be better at this... Oh, and I saved Sonic R's list, so now you can count on seeing less obscure games from now on. :)

:thumbsup:
I love the occasional hidden gem game, but maybe only 1 out of 5 should be obscure. :ponder: I kind of know how getting left out by game choice can be since I've been getting that all season on 5200 so far, even though I have like 40 games. I'd much rather see more players and participation which more common games bring. :)

Slight improvement: 3,167,510

Is there 1 or 2 games you would really like to see played in the 5200 HSC?
I'm thinking of starting a bonus 2 pack round.
I know atariron82 wants to play Looney Toon's Hotel.

Hmm. I never found that one, but a 2-pack of the "paddle games" Kaboom! + Super Breakout would be cool. Maybe even some homebrews and protos. I'll PM you a list of what I've got.

Looney Toon's Hotel is a proto, Kaboom! sounds great. :)
That one hasen't been played before in the 5200 HSC.
I'll go with Looney Toons Hotel and Kaboom! for the next 2 pack. :)
And i'll put Super Breakout (Breakout Mode) on the next game poll. :)
That game hasen't been played for awhile.

I know the feeling. Thunderblade's the same way for me.

Even though difficult, I have a soft spot for Thunder Blade and kind of like it… :-o
