    I'm a gamer first, but collector close second. I have an extensive collection of classic Nintendo, Sega, SNK and NEC consoles/games and a couple of arcade games.

    I grew up with a 7800, but I lost it in the early 90’s. I got back into Atari a couple of years ago, with the much appreciated help of Paul Westphal (http://www.eightbitfix.com). My 800XL gets most of the play time, but my recently reclaimed 7800 is making a serious run for that spot. My primary interest lately seems to be comparing home ports of my favorite arcade games from the 80's.

    I am interested in eventually getting another 8-bit computer and one of the ST series, of which I have no experience with whatsoever. I'm thinking a 1040STE, but will gladly solicit suggestions when I decide to go in that direction.

    Some of the “hats” I have worn as an adult:
    A/V Tech, Hospitality A/V Group Manager, IT Specialist, IT Manager, Network Administrator…

    I can keep up in just about any conversation on those topics, but when it comes to coding I’m like a deer in headlights… wish that wasn’t the case, but it is. I secretly envy those of you who can write code…

    Outside of gaming, you may find me hiking in the mountains around the Portland area, at a random local dive bar, tinkering with computers and AV equipment in the garage or studying up on whatever topic fascinates me that day.

  1. I’m looking for 16 bit era side scrolling beat-em-up recommendations. I have the Streets of Rage series, Final Fight CD and TMNT for the Genesis/SCD and Final Fight 2, Super Double Dragon and TMNT IV for the SNES. I have had all these for years and am looking for something new. Please tell me some of your favorites from back in the day!

      Thanks all! From a quick Youtube glance "Pirates of Dark Water" is along the lines of what I was looking for. I see that there is a "Battletoads and Double Dragon" game that I missed too. Shinobi is great, I have the first two, but what I was looking for is more along the lines of some good Final Fight/Streets of Rage clones that I might have missed back in the day.
