Note: Vertical in this instance merely refers to the aspect ratio,and not necessarily the direction of movement in the game.
This list is merely my opinion. There are many games out there,and we all have our personal preferences. This is mine.
In order to make this list,the games must follow two simple rules…
1#They must be fully playable on your average MAME cabinet,and must not require any special controls or extra equipment.
2#They must closely resemble the arcade game style as much as possible,therefore RPG’s (Chrono Trigger,Final Fantasy,etc.) and some Action Adventure games with higher RPG aspects (Zelda,Actraiser,etc.) do not qualify.
