my first experience with Double Dragon(NES version) was also the first time I realized adults actually play video games.
Now that I'm as old as I am I feel no shame in playing Double Dragon on a Friday night since most of my friends are married and have kids. They'd probably love to be playing video games right now so I guess I can consider myself lucky?
I only wish that I could play the arcade version of Double Dragon one of these days Even though I never could acquire enough quarters to properly beat an arcade game it is truly one of the great video gaming experiences that this generation doesn't realize they are missing out on.
Playing video games with people you don't know online doesn't even come close to the experience of playing games with people in an arcade.
Never actually played the arcade version of Double Dragon in an arcade though (it was a bowling alley)
Apparently people played that shit in gas stations as well
For those of you who don't know anything about Double Dragon or all of the flaws in the movie The Wizard (which was more of a commercial for Super Mario Brothers 3 than it was an actual movie) it would have been impossible for Jimmy to get 50,000 points in that amount of time.
I must say I'm looking forward to(or a bit worried about) seeing how much my skills have declined since I was younger.
I'm sure I'll have more to say about this game since I can't really go into detail since it has been so fucking long since I've played it.
I don't expect this thread to be very active since I know most of the gamers here are younger than me and/or mesmerized by the 'latest and greatest' stuff so the next time I make another post in this thread it will be an organized post full of tons of shit about various subjects related retro gaming
