So I have been playing more arcade games recently and realized that there hasn’t been nearly enough high score fever for more than 15 years now. So many people get obsessed with beating games as fast as they can or simply beating games on the hardest difficulty. What about those games that started hard and finished harder? Did you ever top 100k in Donkey Kong or post an awesome Joust score?
The premise: We should all vote on a classic style arcade game to compete for a high score in. We’ll have a month to compete for the high score and the winner will win praise and adoration from his SRK brethren, I might even be willing to post up a reward if enough people express interest.
If you want to participate please post your interest and the classic arcade game you’d like people to compete over. Once I get a significant amount of applicants I’ll tally the votes and declare the game. We will use this thread to post strats on the current arcade game and talk about parts we’re having difficulty with.
Most of the old school arcade games have freeware versions of them, also. We’ll also need to make sure that everyone is playing on the same version so we’ll iron that out when we get to it. As a reminder don’t make posts about ROMs or emulators but if you’re even remotely fluent with the internet you shouldn’t have a problem getting a good version.
Anyone interested? Please limit your votes to games that have historically had high score competition and are at least some what well known.
