I think I'll use those last night 5 to fill in gaps in some genres and sub genres. Not too sure but unless I get convinced to swap titles, that's 95/100.

96/100! Added Pang. Once the list is done, I would like to see if we can make a separate thread and sticky it. Any games that are variations where one may disagree with another we could color code it (someone gets red blue green orange, etc.) once we discuss games we all could have over looked. I think it would be an awesome resource and could eventually review the games and add to the list of recommended games over time. What you all think?

I think in the Fighter Vs section you should have decided which version of Street Fighter, as the first one with just that as its name was poor at best... But it looks like you are going for series in there, so it's all good...
Ooer... No pictures...

Exactly, I am going by series but at the end I wanted to post the best of each title that is playable by MAME so you know what version to add to a favorites folder. Think it would be the best thing to do for a complete list. I guess once it's done we can talk about what may or may not belong. I would kind of like to squeeze The Wardner in there for a platformer. I was talking to my brother about that yesterday.

Thinking of dropping Arkanoid for the others and making it a top 10. Then, make it a Top 15 on the Platformers. Add The Wardner, Ninja-Kid, and 2 more.

I hit 100 posts! By the way, after looking again I noticed platformers supposed to say top 15.

It doesnt allow me to PM the high ranking guys all at once. Just 1 at a time. Wanted to see if they see any titles I missed. Likely have to message one at a time huh?

List looks good, its a good reference on where to begin with Mame Games. By my opinion Ms. Pacman is a better version of the Pacman series, plus M.U.S.H.A. was only releases for the Sega Genesis/ Mega Drive, unless I'm mistaken please correct me.

I am in the process of selecting best versions of each series for the list now but yes seriously considering Ms. Pacman for improvements. Also, see Mahou Daisakusen or Sorcer Striker. I meed to see if the MAME version is any good, but if someone has suggestions on replacements for the list I'm all ears. I do like the Aleste series and that is a solid title. It took me a bit to get the name it's been a while for me on MAME Addicts. Welcome!
