    I remember a karate game on the Commodore 64, I think it was called International Karate? It was a fun game in the style of street fighter II.

    Is that the one Van Damme and Ogre play in the Hotel in the movie Bloodsport? I think it is.

    Forgot this one: Little League Baseball. Barely edges out RBI baseball because of the California team's chick pitcher. She was hot when I was 11.

    Any Tekken heads here? Having EWGF trouble with Devil Jin and hoping to hear some advice - afraid I'll get flamed on the tekken zaibatsu forums. [​IMG]

    Awesome, I think that was the one my friend had for Genesis that we spent weeks and weeks playing. Similar and also addictive and fun was Tradewars 2002 for BBSes.

    I came back to this thread, though, to mention Uplink, an extremely addictive hacking "simulation". I spent way too much time playing this game when I first found it. It's not terribly realistic, but it is sure fun, especially when you play properly (i.e. don't back up your game). The tension can be nervewracking when you are deleting your traces from a very complicated hack and never knowing for sure (until you figure out the tricks) if you have sufficiently covered your tracks. Also it's one of those great games you don't have to do in any specific order - there are tons of ways to have fun with the game even if you ignore the storyline.

    I use Kazuya much more than jin, the principle is the same though. Try to do it as though you are pressing right-punch before you do the d,d/f. Try with Kazuya first ... his ewgf is easier as it is only f,d/f not f,d,d/f. Timing is the key here, not how quickly you can pull off the motion.

    From imdb:
    The arcade game that Van Damme and Donald Gibb are playing is called Karate Champ
