Worst Midway Arcade Classics

One of my earliest lists was one about classic arcade games the brilliant minds of Such classics behind Defender, Smash TV, & most notably Mortal Kombat. Yet these games just aren't how you thought they were in fact its amazing they ended up coming back in a virtual console release these are the more almost unplayable arcade games I recommended not to seek.

The Top Ten

1 Vindicators Vindicators

This games control setup is beyond screwed up like I move up, and it moves down what a coincidence is that's terrible programming at its finest why did they do this, and also why even include this it should of been back to being tested with fewer controls, and not going backwards constantly with its awkwardly uniquely bad controls. - htoutlaws2012

2 Toobin' Toobin'

The controls in this game are bad however it may look pleasant graphically its about gameplay, and this is one game where the theme, and everything I just didn't not feel any of it. - htoutlaws2012

3 Hard Drivin' Hard Drivin'

Well as the title suggest at least that is accurate, but I feel like this game was made to be intentionally bad as it was. - htoutlaws2012

4 Cyberball 2072 Cyberball 2072

This is literally a weird version of playing american football with bad controls plus visuals look mediocre for late 80's. - htoutlaws2012

5 Pit-Fighter Pit-Fighter

Depending on what port you play overall its just atrocious. It's the power of lucky mashing buttons, and this was before Mortal Kombat. The arcade version you can at least play continuously, but you won't feel like a winner though. - htoutlaws2012

6 Rampage World Tour

Everyone remembers the classic game in 1986 where you basically destroy everything in sight while trying to stay alive is was kinda like the Hulk in a way, but a decade later in the 90's were given this long awaited sequel that just seem lost in the shuffle, and not in the good aspect. The look of the game looks terrible, and goofy basic controls bad. - htoutlaws2012

7 Joust 2 Joust 2

Joust 1 is an all time classic that yes maybe its not for everyone, but its sequel is also more difficult right from the start. - htoutlaws2012

8 Satan's Hollow Satan's Hollow

Now granted the premise was very interesting, but execution it pretty tough, and its very religious and it's a very simplistic version of Galaga, only you're given a shield. - htoutlaws2012

9 Rampart Rampart

Its one of the easiest games in the whole library and while its innovative for something later like Bloons tower defense here its pretty dull and boring like you may think differently to how I do, but for Midway is there anything distinction here to go out of not really next. - htoutlaws2012

10 Race Drivin' Race Drivin'

Race Drivin' is the sequel to Hard Drivin' which is much worse than this, and while alright its still one of the weaker Midway classics to have as a favorite which almost unlikely to be. - htoutlaws2012
