I used to be able to 1cc Sega's Star Wars Trilogy Arcade. Most of the game is an on-rail shooter, so a lot more memorization than skill, but I got pretty good at it. You rack up extra points for consecutive hits (no misses at all) so I'd practice to keep beating my high score.

One weekend night, I climbed out of the cockpit to see a crowd had been watching me play. One guy patted me on the shoulder and said 'You're a f*ing jedi, man'. :D

The machine is still active at a beachfront arcade here and I still own high scores #1-5 and most of the high score table from back when the machine was 'new'.

That's all I can think of right now  8)

I'll try to take a pic next time I'm at that arcade. Probably be stopping there again a few times this summer... All of my high scores were set more than 10 years ago, and the arcade is near the ocean and shut down all winter. Always surprised that the save memory has lasted another off-season. :D

I grew up in Great Yarmouth and the one thing it had going for it was a wealth of arcades, which are still there but sadly most of the video games have been replaced with one armed bandits. With that nostalgic lament out of the way, here are the games I've completed:

Double Dragon
Simpsons
TMNT
Punisher
WWF Superstars
Wrestlefest
Saturday Night Slam Masters
Golden Axe
Final Fight

Very similar to my list!

I have been on holiday to Yarmouth many times so have frequented a few of the arcades there myself!

I live just on the outskirts now but I've decided to head to the seafront this year and have a day as a tourist! I worked for the Flamingo arcade back in the 90's and I know they had literally hundreds of arcade boards in the loft space, I wish now I had snapped some of my favourites up.
