Yeah several, but I'm not going to hijack this thread ;) Maybe a good topic for a thread of it's own. It's a volatile topic though as we have several people with youtube channels among us ;)

Final Fight with it's big sprites and 2 player mode running in 512k... that's impressive. I cry at the thought what the game could have looked like with 1mb available to it.

I don't mind time pressure sections of a game, just not from start to finish. It's pretty much cargo cult game design, I'm glad it stopped being a thing.
