Classic Video Games Featuring Superheroes



io9 has a gallery of 1988-2000 arcade games like Superman, Spiderman, and more. The only one I remember is the 1992 X-Men 6-player monster machine.
If you were sentient during the early 1990s, chances are you (and five of your closest friends) wasted an afternoon at this game's massive cabinet. Not only was Konami's X-Men a hoot to play, it also provided a hilariously idiosyncratic take on Marvel's favorite mutants. For example, Wolverine spoke with an Australian accent, Colossus had a spark attack, Juggernaut carried a bazooka, and Magneto's broken English is the stuff of legends (see: "WELCOME TO DIE," "I AM MAGNETO MASTER OF MAGNET," "KILL YOU YOU ARE DEAD," "COME X-CHICKEN").

I think this is perhaps the ONLY arcade game that I have played all the way through. I really don't remember how many quarters my friend and I used for continues ;)

Looking at this pics, I'd swear the graphics looked better when I was a kid. "State of the art" becomes outdated faster then we realize I guess.
