This game blew my mind when it first came out, a 3d fighting game?!? Even with the floaty jumps this game was amazing, the graphics and animation were so far ahead of other games like Tekken (I'm not sure which one came out first) and the gameplay was a blast. Sure it might be outdated today, but back than it was a revolution for fighting games. Even with the graphics so plain and simple though the game looks great even today.

I remember when this came out, it was such a breath of fresh air after the 5 billion mortal kombat / SF2 clones that had proceeded it. To bad the Mega Drive / Genesis version didn't do the arcade justice.

Clumsy yet endearing. Anyone used to classic 2D brawlers should be warned there will be a lot of readjusting to play Virtua Fighter. It's a 3D fighter restricted to movement on a 2D plane with dodges that can move your character in the third dimension. You'll be fighting against the controls to get anything done in game. Character movement is very awkward and the AI is god mode difficult. The cabinet looks really nice and features some basic, yet cool side art. Despite all this, it is a fun game

v fighter rocks. but it has been pushed aside by the new titles.

Great early 3D fighting game and a nice arcade machine to boot. I never played SFII in arcades so this and the Capcom Marvel games were the main arcade fighting games I grew up with.

 Dig Dug II: Trouble in Paradise - NES
"This time tried doing something different with the Dig Dug formula- and it succeeded. Like Dig Dug, this is a game meant to be played on a few quarters in short bursts rather than playing for hours on end. The music is repetitive and catchy, and we have yet again an addicting arcade game. Comparing this port to the arcade, obviously it's been downgraded slightly. But all the gameplay is intact and the graphics and sound are pretty close. This is almost arcade perfect, and deserves five stars!" - cammysbutt

 Atari 2600 4-Switch Wood Grain Console - Atari 2600
"One of many revisions of the classic 2600. Built like a tank, many of these still run to this day." - sherberttcat

 The Last of Us - PlayStation 3
"This game is amazingly beautiful. Visually it looks stunning and detailed. The story is there to highlight what really makes this game good - the moment to moment narrative and character development. This game is about following the main characters and seeing the ways they try to cope and survive given their harsh situation. The gameplay itself is fantastic too - the stealth elements are awesome especially, and the survival, searching for resources and crafting stuff part is fun. Play this game!" - svenbtb

 Sega Master System Console - Sega Master System
"Wow I didnt know about the Master System till this CGR review. Thanks Mark!" - swabbers

 Operation Wolf - NES
"I used to play this on my old IBM 286 (pre-mouse). Really fun, but using the arrow keys was quite the nuisance. The light gun seems like a better option." - drockus
