For the racing game I nominate Hard Drivin' (or Race Drivin'), as long as someone can explain to me how to setup the controls for my (X-box like) gamepad in MAME. I just can't figure it out.

For 1986-1990 I nominate Arkanoid (1 or 2)

For Konami you could add Blades of Steel, counting goal differential or something as 'points'.

I have friends coming over for Memorial Day(and there's talk, since a few of them are off for the summer of them staying until September). My question is would it be possible for TEAMS to sign up for this HSC or is it individual only. I ask because with my MAME cabinet, we hold tournaments here as well(ESPECIALLY a Street Fighter X Tekken tournament on Memorial Day). So, it'd be cool if we'd have something to base it around instead of picking a game at random. So, my thought is to have a HSC challenge for the game and the highest score gets posted.

As for your list:

a Game from 1986-1990 - Pac Mania

1 racing game - My cabinet doesn't have a wheel so I'm not sure of one that just uses a joystick

4 game manufacturer challenge - Williams/Midway

NARC
Smash TV
Mortal Kombat(it does have a scoring system)
Robotron 2084

Question: how stringent are we with classifying a company as a “manufacturer”? I ask because often games are created by one company, published by another company, and distributed by yet another company in different countries. Often, there is more than a single well-known company linked to a single game (Taito, Sega, Williams, Atari, Bally Midway, Namco, etc.). For example, depending on who you ask, Frogger might be a “Sega” game or it might be a “Konami” game.

This makes it difficult when you try to run searches and sort by company at different sources (KLOV.com is a great example), and you’ll see games pop up under a certain “manufacturer” but the screen shots that they have for the game show a different company name on the title screen.

My vote would be, you can attribute a game to a certain company so long as you can produce a reputable source that links that company to the game as either developer, publisher, or distributor. KLOV and the MAME history.dat files are examples of what I would consider good sources.

What say you, oh overlord of the HSC?

Me personally, I just use MAME to tell me the Manufacturer. I understand what you are saying though. Either way. I won't me to picky about it. The reason I went with Konami as my suggestion again was simple. I made this thread a little later than usual and did a quick copy/paste job of my suggestions from the last tourney.

I think we should stick to individual scores. But if you would like to share the highs from there I'll track them on the side just as "bar set" type thing as not to have the Team Score interfere with an individual winning the tournment. And of course, if someone there wants to share all of their scores, they are more than welcome to post them here. It's not too bad to make an account here. Just a few clicks if you use the Facebook log in as I did.

As far as the racing game, I will be playing what ever game on a keyboard. So a stick would not be too bad. I've played Pole Position with keys before. It's okay I guess.

1990 Raiden


Racing Game - Pole Position


Now those are two games that I wouldn't have a problem with. Raiden is such a nicely balanced shooter, as far as difficulty is concerned. All of the 8 bosses have bullet arrangements that can be dodged with extreme precision, but with lots of practice they are beatable. I still haven't mastered the 5 th boss, but I am close. ;-)

....and about the 8th boss, good luck. If you roll up on big number 8 with at least 2 bombs on board, you MIGHT have a shred of a chance to do it without dying. 3 bombs is better, though.

Let the record show that the only reason I wouldn't consider selecting Raiden for my 1990 pick is that I know I have no chance against my brother and I desperately need the points.

Hint hint, voters.

Regarding Golden Axe, that's an old standby fave for sure but I just realized I've never played it for score. Come to think of it, does it even have score?

It gives you a strength rating when you die. I forget how it works though. All I know it get's higher the further you get in the game. I don't think I've broke 90.XX on one coin ever.

Really, the only thing I prefer about Mat Mania (or, Exciting Hour as I knew it growing up) is the variety of opponents.

Aside from the 2-player mode, Mania Challenge added some move reversals and of course the venerable dropkick. It also tweaked the game so it's harder to exploit the "3 hits" trick.

The thing that sucks, of course, is that in single player mode you go through the same 2-3 opponents (I forget) over and over again.

The sound and crowd graphics took a huge step down with the sequel. As a one player game, the original is way more fun.

I don't know if I'll be able to participate in the tournament, but I'd like to say that if Konami is chosen as the company, I'd like to see their Xexex in the game selection. I'm familiar with it from the Salamander Portable PSP collection, and I recall enjoying the graphics and sound, along with the somewhat R-Type-esque gameplay. A fairly obscure title, I believe.
