Well it has been a long time since I did an Old School review and I am bit shocked that I never did a review of this game or rather games under this awesome and very addicting game in which I spent countless hours dying and blowing through quarters so let us go through another review.

Sorry for slight delay in my next review just getting over a nasty cold, I would say I am about 85-90% rid of it. So tonight or tomorrow depending what time you read this, I will be reviewing one of the best beat up games during the prime of old school arcade games. In which I introduce a new title called “Grand Daddy”, which basically means that this game lead the way in it’s genre of arcade games, in which Final Fighter will be the first.

1985 would be the biggest year of any game designer; however, it would take a Russian Scientist by the name of Alexey Pajitnov to spark one of the biggest franchise in gaming history. In terms of copyright problems to hundreds of spin-offs from the original game this 22 year franchise even rivals the great Mario Bro’s in terms of popularity and of course it’s clone. I only mere 4 year old back then and never really looked at a video game except for the Atari system, but off course that …

Well it is almost summer time which means school is almost over, seniors graduating across the world and of course blowing millions of dollars into the arcade. Well people did that even during the school season but either way we still spent millions in quarters playing every arcade including the fighting and gun games. Which brings me down memory lane for one of the biggest games to come out on the market and a great year for movies as well and to think I was just a skinny little boy …

I am in shock and awe that I got in two arcade reviews in one week and two think I was going spread them out and stuff for people to read and bring in their thoughts of these old school games. So lets head down to memory lane to another great old school game from the Marvel era, Captain America and the Avengers based off of comic book heroes and villians made famous during the 40s-60s. There not much to go with on this game because if you read any …

Well for those who have been reading my reviews and what not about those old school arcade games, I would fathom a guess that most of you were waiting to see when and if I was going to review the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade games. Well Guess what it turtle time as I review both great classics in one review; Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time. I will admit like the other 80 billion kids during my day of awesome 80’s and early …

Recently I got back into playing old school arcade games; no I am not talking about the ones that have been redone so you can play them on your playstation, xbox, psp or whatever. I am talking about the huge joy sticking, button mashing, finger hurting, 50 cent dropping, pizza eating games we gamers played back in the 80’s and 90’s in malls, until we got those lame games like Dance Dance Revolution (eeew) where you need to actually pay attention to. Well it was simple economics to why the …
