    Default Hall of Fame for MAME/Arcade Games with Cool Controls

    Added a 2nd Hall of Fame on my MAMEBlog. It's for games that have appeared on this blog as "Game of the Day" that have cool or unusual control schemes. They are all the MAME version, so they do not benefit from their arcade cabinet hardware uniqueness, but all have interesting ways to control the action that make them fun even in MAME.

    If you know of other obscure games with unique or weird ways to use the controls (js or spinner or trackball or buttons), post it here.

    Check out the new Hall of Fame if you'd like...

    Absolutely. They aren't in my Hall of Fame because they have not been "Games of the Day" on my MAMEBlog, as they are too popular for me to post about them - I try to do more obscure games. But there is no doubt they are all time classics with great controls.

    Crazy Climber also used duel joysticks.
    I'm just trying to keep from losing my mind!

    I don't know what it is, but the real world controls to Hydra make that game for me, and I really want to own one someday just because of them. I don't like the game that much, but the controls were really fun.

    I'll also nominate HydroThunder and H2Overdrive as having perfect, unique arcade controls
