Favorite Games:

Pressure Cooker and Ice Hockey.

 

Most Surprising Games:

Dragon's Descent and Fantastic Voyage.

DD is actually one of my favorite games now, but I didn't know about it at all until we had to play it.

I had played Fantastic Voyage before, but was convinced it sucked, and it doesn't suck so bad.

 

Worst Games:

(Hate to say "worst", all games are "ok" somehow...I guess..)

Canyon Bomber and Basketball

 

Congrats to all!!!

 

Crap, I anticipated squeaking into the Gold Bracket, getting creamed by Zilch or OMG in the first round, lol, the Silver is actually a bit more pressure for me...

:P

 

This has truly been a blast!

...

Long, but a blast!!!

Think you did, I don’t think the math is correct 

 

You were ahead of Deteacher before the Fantastic voyage round, and you beat his score.. 

 

I would check again if I was you Roger

Worst: none ... that's like asking someone to pick one of their children that they hate the most LOL!

 

Suprises:

1. Dragon's Descent - Fantastic game ... Adventure on steroids and all kinds of other illicit performance- and appearance-enhancing substances XD It's like 1972 Pong vs. 2018 PS4 Tennis World Tour ... well ... maybe not THAT drastic of an improvement ... but pretty damn close.

 

2. Ice Hockey

I never played more than half of these games before this HSC Season 9. I either dismissed them as boring-looking or whatever, including Ice Hockey. But man oh man, I found that game to be surprisingly fun.

 

Favorite games:

1. Pressure Cooker

2. Fantastic Voyage - loved it since I was a kid.

(Tutankham a close 3rd)

Gotta say the Gold Bracket match ups look to be the strongest I’ve ever seen. Who will win??

Most surprising: Canyon Bomber. It always seemed like a cheap 2K early generic shovelware, until I played it here, read the manual, and found out what you're supposed to do.

Vocelli...I think you made a mistake with the scoring... how did deteeacher end up in 6th??? I Had a higher total score before the fantastic voyage week And I had a higher score for fv?  How did he end up with a higher rank?  I must be missing something.

Hmm-you know about my bad maths already, lol, is something I could have easily overlooked!

Is OK with me either way, but Vocelli, you mind to recheck that?

First off, congrats to all!

 

*Favorite Game from Season 9

H.E.R.O and Pressure Cooker

 

*Most Surprising Game from Season 9

Fantastic Voyage, Tutankham.

 

*Worst Game from Season 9

Frankenstein's Monster, Oink! (Don't be fooled by the grades on my site -- that was before I played them competitively. FM took a deep dive when I discovered how much the game robs you of points.)

Huge Congrats to Zilch Sr. and Congrats to everyone in all the categories as well!!....Also a BIG thank you to Vocelli for hosting such a great tournament, this is my first one and had a blast and also learnt so much in the process!

 

*Favorite Game From Season 9: 

     1.  H.E.R.O.  -  Never played this one until this tournament and immediately got hooked on this title.

     2.  Centipede  -  Played this one on and off over the years but never really 'clicked' with me until recently.

     

*Most Surprising Game From Season 9:

     There was so many but the ones that 'stuck out' the most for me are:

     1. Dragon's Descent   -   Absolutely love everything about this title!

     2. G.I. Joe   -   First 'Paddle Game' that I spent any real time on, really enjoyed this one.

         (Fantastic Voyage would be ranked a very close 3rd for me if it where applicable).

 

*Worst Game From Season 9:

    When it comes to the 2600, for me, I honestly don't think they're are any 'bad' ones, but if I had to choose:

    1.  Frankenstein's Monster   -   This probably would've been a 'great' one if it wasn't so frustrating.

    2.  Basketball   -   Not a 'bad' cart but another one that was extremely frustrating for me.

It was a lot of fun.  Thank you, Vocelli, for all your hard work in putting this together.  I used to run the Arcade/MAME HSC and had difficulty keeping up with it, so I stepped down from it.  I know how much work goes into it.  Thanks again!

 

Congrats to Zilch for the win!  Best of luck to everyone in the bracket rounds!

Still can't believe I came in third.  Not that I'm disappointed, I just can't believe I did that well.  I never thought of myself as more than above average at games to be honest (I'm an adventure and RPG gamer, not an action gamer).

 

Favorite game: Probably Phoenix.  I've always liked this game and the 2600 version is a really decent port (actually, I believe it's the ONLY port).

 

Most surprising game: Tie between GI Joe and Canyon Bomber.  I'd never played either before because they're paddle games and I enjoyed both of them immensely.  GI Joe would get the vote though I guess.

 

Worst game: GORF.  Not only is the arcade game a crappy game to begin with (sorry GORF fans, you know it's true), but the 2600 port is extremely poor.  Halloween came in a close second, but everyone knows Halloween is a bad game, so there were no high expectations for that one.

This was my first time participating and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  It makes you play games you would normally ignore and I think that is a good thing.  Congratulations to the top hard core players.

 

Favorites:

Fantastic Voyage - This is a well designed game.

Pac Man 4k - I love to see a game that resembles the arcade version after what we got in the 80's

 

Most Surprising:

Thunderground - had the cart for years, but never really played it until now

Seaweed Assault - after finally understanding how to play it, had a lot of fun

 

Worst:

Star Wars Death Star Battle - really wanted this as a kid, looks like I was lucky not to get it

Halloween - the novelty is fun, but wears thin fast

Favorites

  • Pressure Cooker - This one has held up for me over the decades! As I said back in the thread when this was played, it reminds me a lot as a super early concept for the current Overcooked! games that exist on modern consoles.
  • Fantastic Voyage - It's fun and I like shmups. It's maybe not what most people would call a vertical scrolling shmup, but a lot of elements are there.
  • (Hard to pass on H.E.R.O., but so be it. I like these two more!)

Surprises

  • Dragon's Descent - Really cool concept and was fun!
  • Star Wars: Return of the Jedi: Death Star Battle - Maybe not a super great game overall, but I thought the concept was interesting and entertained me more than I would have thought.

Worst

  • Halloween - Despite liking the idea of a game based on this horror film, it tires out very quickly and is not that fun.
  • Spitfire Attack - This was very boring to me.
