    I'm surprised more of the older, official '80's arcade games aren't out on the iPhone, from whoever owns the rights to them.
    So many of them, particularly those from the mid 80-late '80's would be sooo awesome.
    Off the top of my head, I'd love to see:
    OutRun.
    Afterburner.
    Super Monaco GP
    Virtua Racing.
    Chase HQ.
    Super Hang On.
    etc...

    Yes, I grew up with these games, and SEGA's ones were always my faves. :D
    If SEGA took their fingers out of their a$$, and put these on the iPhone, I(and I'm sure many others) would literally spend forever playing them, almost completely ignoring more 'modern' titles.

    Wow some classics there... here's some more:

    Chu Chu Rocket
    Star Wars (Vector version)
    Operation Wolf
    Time Crisis
    House of the Dead
    Super Skid Marks
    Gauntlet
    Space Harrier

    Dont think we need anymore racing games!!!
     
  3. I used to LOVE some of these games. But I also loved games from my ZX Spectrum. I looked at those games on YouTube, and played them online via a free flash version, and thought "what the hell was I thinking?" Some games are classics, agreed. But some I know I just won't want to go back to now.
    I mean surely we can do better than Afterburner and Space Harrier now, right?

    People will always pay for authentic nostalgia, as long as it's implemented well.

    I could go for a brawler like ninja turtles or the simpsons arcade.
    maybe tilt to walk with buttons for jump and attack.

    YES

    We need to just jailbreak our devices and use emulators

    Wolfenstien - PC
    General Chaos - Sega's Best multiplayer game ever!
    Pilot Wings - N64
    Monkey Island - PC
    DiscWorld- PSX

    I'm hoping Sega releases Sonic for the iPhone. I know the iPod version was pretty much a flop due to controls, but I think they can manage this better with the touch screen
