The Simpsons, Street Fighter 2, Virtual On… Primal Rage? Video Game Arcades in the 1990s were a bit of a Silver Age, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t a ton of awesome games! While some might get ported to the PS4s and Nintendo Switches, not all of em do. However, here’s a brief history/super biased look at games I played as a kid!

  1. What are some of your favorite Arcade Games from the '90s?

    Totally forgot to talk about Dance Dance Revolution.
    you know
    probably the most dominating arcade game of that era

    but that's okay, it makes a cameo

  2. Is it still like that?
    *sniffs armpit cheese

  3. yeah, fightin spirit for the amiga @ 03:10
    what a suprise to see such an obscue game in an american video:)

  4. See, I love me some emulation. Like, I'm mildly obsessed with it. I have full rom sets for so many different consoles, along with countless rom hacks and homebrew. One of my favorite things to emulate though, are arcade games. Only downsides really is that you're kinda forced to limit yourself on credits, since you can load in an infinite number of quarters. Otherwise it gets super easy and pointless. And that saving hi-scores is kind of a pain in the ass, so you're kinda left manually writing 'em down if you wanna save them.

    I have so many arcade (and neogeo) games on my Xbox via Retroarch emulation. I just wish I could afford a fight stick. A fight stick is my next major purchase if I ever get some money saved up (along with an EZFlash Jr. for my GBA).

  5. Now i miss my arcade. Well, probably gonna go to a nearest mall and play some Initial D, House Of The Dead, Tekken and Wangan Midnight.

  6. In the 90s, not everyone was about that 3d. I remember specifically wanting an arcade perfect home port of Xmen vs Street Fighter for the ps1. I wanted my games to look like a well-drawn cartoon back then.

    Also: lethal enforcers was my jam on snes lol.

    Also also: I see a ton of videos with people saying "I wasn't allowed to play that one." Was I the only latchkey kid going to the arcade by myself? My mom bought my brother and I MK2 on launch day.

  7. I live in a desolate area so mostly second town over movie theaters had some very decent arcade jams crazy taxi mvc2 carnival and this one cute light gun game about 2 human children being turned into animals and shooting through a haunted house to turn themselves back and i can never remember the name. XD

  8. What an awesome trip down memory lane.

  9. Killer instinct was everything for me especially that loud music and the dude saying Killer Instinct shit I’m ready to play now

  10. God these poor kids now a days , my kids , all they know how to do I turn on their console or PC and choose the game they want to play / download . Back then you ahead so much anticipation and excitement in the arcades … miss these days , we still have one arcade here in our city and we go about twice a year .

  11. Thx too Mame emulator I downloaded 140 arcade games in my phone due mobile games nowadays are kinda meh now

  12. 16:13, My Dear Friend Rally, as used by Videogamedunkey in his videos as his closing credits song. God how I loved Sega Rally and Daytona back in the day.

  13. I finally got to play that Simpsons beaten up on my tablet BUT…I can only play as Marge Cuz when u insert coin it auto selects her and no one wants her! I have played this game since 1991 and I get push faced like that is just OUCH!

  14. All shoot'em up and beat em ups from the 90s are still my favorites
