Well,
copied from other topic: two games that are worth checking are 'Dungeons and Dragons: the Tower of Doom' and 'Dungeons and Dragons: Shadow over Mystara'.

@ DamienD -

Cruisin USA + Crusin' World

You have to have really powerful PC to play those without frame skiping. I liked more Nintendo64 version. (with save state etc.)

Very true. This is why I didn't add games like Tekken series, Virtual Racing, Virtual Fighter, Star Wars Trilogy etc.

Frame skipping can help a little bit though

Ke? Your screenshot is from the arcade version.

Really, I love this game but the Amiga version sucks in my opinion...

Nothing like the arcade port

It's Virtua, not virtual.

And frameskipping actually makes some of these games run slower.

Sune,
autoframe skipping is what makes those games worst.

If you set something (0 or any other value), the game plays better then with autofram skipping. (at least on my computer)

Didn't have that much problems using PJ64 for the same game. Probably is not that good as arcade (I'm to dumb to see difference) but it was fun to complete all tracs.

Always wondered why it was virtua, virtual seems to make more sense.

It was because someone else already took virtual in the name (not sure which company nor I can find where did I read about it ).

One of my favourite games is X Multiply which is a great little shooter by Irem which seems to get overlooked quite a lot

Is that another insane hard shooter, or something that is also playable?

This is list of classic arcade games that I still play from time to time:

Crazy Kong (have to have gorila in the list )


Dig-Dug


Galaga


Galaxian


Moon Patrol


Phoenix


Scramble


Those games are all 'must try' if you haven't in the time of arcade. (A lot of lunch money spent on them )
