    Right here. Right now.

    Highest score wins. Pics or it didn't happen. Which game to choose first. I propose 1942. Anyone have it?

    Great idea. I dont have it. But I found this:

    http://www.1980-games.com/us/old-games/ ... arcade.php

    I just dont know the controls. I know "6" is insert credits. And "P" darkens the screen a bit so I guess that's pause. But I cant figure out what start is! Will this work?

    Start is 1, Control shoots, Arrow keys do the obvious.

    Boo. I give up. I suck at this.

    How many people have been trying? Can I get an idea of what "normal" might be, so I can determine my level of suckage?

    Oops, I honestly forgot about this topic.

    My best score playing this morning (on an actual NES, not emulator) is 062300. Third stage.

    Hah... :(

    I can barely get through the first stage. I have this horrible tendency to run into everything... :p

    Yeah, before this my high score was 04700, and the second stage. Every time I see the aircraft carrier appear on the top of the screen I tend to lose my shit and run into something.

    Keep this topic going. I'll download Mame or an NES emulator if I have to. Playing on the keyboard is ass.

    Oh, fuck you. I had a 75% shoot down, if that counts fir anything.

    Any other games you guys want to add to the tournament? How about something simple like Super Mario Bros?

    This. lol. And I guess my percentage is good? I hover around 75, with a high of 79, I think.

    SMB would be neat. Go for NES.... Although, I don't think there's anything wrong with having a subcat for Arcade or otherwise, for those who don't have it.

    How about M.U.S.H.A.? On an Genesis emulator of course, unless you want to shell out over $100 for it complete.

    Why not?

    When was the last time you played an NES, SNES, or a N64 game? Or even an arcade title?

    I'm up for SMB. Mine will be Wii-enforced of course. shall we say farthest you get without level skipping. And if you complete it, most amount of lives at the end?
