Yes, the GBA gets a lot of dreck
Dark Arena is an original Doom-like for the Game Boy Advance. It is terrible.

Midway's Greatest Arcade Hits is a set of conversions of Defender, Joust, Robotron: 2084, and Sinistar. Each one of the conversions is an abomination.

You have been warned.

Yeah there are quite a few doom+ engine games on the gba, it is really weird.

I still have one, "Ecks vs Sever"

As far as the midway pack... I enjoyed them, no idea why they're so terrible to you.

They are kind of harder to play on the small screen.

The midway pack ruined my joust skills.

You BOUGHT Ecks vs Sever? You know you're just encouraging them to make more movies like that. Just say 'no.'

From the perspective of a connoisseur, any port that's not just like the arcade original is shameful, especially now that we have the technology to make perfect recreations possible. That the originals tended to do so much so perfectly makes it worse.

EvS was like, 15 bucks used at some store back in the day.

Ah, yes. Zachary. Is your motto "No game is too cheap to suck"? Seems like it between this and the whole "Madden was on sale, so I bought it even though I knew I would not like it" thing. You amuse me greatly.

Dear troll:
Yes, you've managed to take what I said out of context: I did buy Madden, I had thought I would not like, and it turned out I enjoyed it somewhat.

With regards to EvS I got my $15 worth out of enjoyment out of it.
