Top 5 Underrated Arcade Games

Even though you are more likely to find a bag filled with money, than a modern arcade, I still have a lot of love for this endangered species. It seems like now that the arcades have gone by the wayside, gamers tend to only remember those popular machines from their childhood. Well, I've had about enough of that! Today let's take a look at some of those arcade classics that deserve just as much attention as greats like TMNT and Mortal Kombat.

I also play the plant in Battle Circuit.

So do you plan to make more videos like this? Will you be showcasing games like Ninja Baseball Bat Man or Ninja Master's?

Yeah! Unknown arcade gems could be a good series for you!

I enjoyed the video thoroughly! Even though I have played and loved all of those games, I am glad to see that other people found them to be spectacular as well.

I think the reason Battletoads failed or was forgotten was because it was released too far into the death of the arcades. It is a shame they never brought it out for the systems. You would think that it would be an Xbox Arcade game or something! That game was too good to just let drift away.

Also, I still to this day stand adamant that the Alpha series is the best in the street fighter universe. The rhythm behind it really appeals to me to no end! So good!

Keep up the great work man!

Every time I pull out Windjammers at a party, people are like "What, this sucks...." and then a few hours later, are madly competing and yelling at me for bringing the "crack" to the party. I did not know about Battle Circuit, and am going to put that in my list of games to play -- looks amazing, and I'm a beat-'em-up junkie! The others I've played and loved, looks like we've got very similar tastes. Great video, look forward to more! :D

Currently working on converting some crappy Football 4-P arcade game into a Battle Circuit. One of my favorite arcade games of all time.
