Battle Of The Bands - Ghostbusters

[size=140]In memory of the late great Harold Ramis (Egon Spengler) I thought it was only right to do this very special Battle Of The Bands!

David Crane's Ghostbusters is one of the best selling home computer games of all time and also got several console ports too. It wasn't just a great game though, it also became well known for its use of the smash hit Ray Parker Jr. theme song on the karaoke like title screen.

So which version is the best, only one way to find out! FIGHT![/size]

That Atari 8-Bit takes the win for me.  The NES version is pretty good too. 

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

Like many of you I voted for the Atari 8-bit POKEY version, which for me is the easy winner.

It sounds the most like the original and has the best speech too. I am still very impressed by the 2600 version though.

Dunno what is up with that weird Master System version, it sounds too fast for a start.
