What is the best arcade shooter?

For me, it’s Time Crisis II, the pinnacle of the series.

>> No.6325659 [DELETED] 

Silent Scope (1999 arcade) is so cool with the little scope monitor but I think I enjoyed HotD2 on Dreamcast the most. Time Crisis is good too. Cover shooters with a light gun are good stuff. Have you ever played Police 911?

What gun do people generally use for a MAME->CRT setup?

>> No.6325786

Maximum Force, but Time Crisis II is probably tops for me too

>> No.6325802

Asteroids from the Atari

I wouldn't say it was the best, but literally every mall arcade, roller rink, pizza place, and lasertag arena I went to in the mid to late 90s had this machine. I've probably spent around $100 in quarters during my life playing it, and have beat it probably a dozen times. his game is forever burned into my brain and hits me with massive nostalgia anytime I see this cab still.

House of the Dead, Time Crisis II (although I personally preferred 3 for the weapon switching), and LA Machineguns are my top three.

>> No.6326034

House of the dead 1 and 2
Time crisis games too

I actually replayed the original House of the Dead for the first time in years and oddly enough I prefer it over 2. Luckily because of the near arcade perfect port on the Dreamcast I've played 2 countless times, but sadly we never got anything that came close to the arcade in regards to the home versions. The Saturn version is shit.

Virtua Cop 2

Area 51 is the shortest fucking game I swear.

What about The Wii version?

>> No.6327035

Short but oh so sweet. I always couldn’t wait for the movie to be over so I could go back to the lobby arcade and play it some more.

>> No.6327097

House of the Dead 1 has a far better atmosphere and setting than 2.

>> No.6327143

House of the Dead 2 and Virtua Cop 3 for me.

>> No.6327209

for some reason hotd 1 didnt got a port for the wii, sadly.

>> No.6327218

probably HOTD 2 then HOTD and i don't hate HOTD 3

i agree 100%. couldn't describe the effect this one had on me growing up better myself. wish we had gotten a wii port or something.

Can I assume that shmups aren't barred from this discussion? I mean, they fall under the broader classification of shooters.

Too bad Site4 isn't playable in mame for some obscure reason.

The girl on the side of the cabinet was the first thing I ever blew a load to because my dad had the game in the garage.
