If you enjoy your arcade games at home then come September 24th, 1987 you were one happy camper because Defender 2 came to basements across America.
Not only is this game fantastic and the previous one fantastic but the ad campaign wrote the commercial directly for why I love the original NES so much. Thank you for this game in my basement starting in September, 1990
Just to keep a short theme from yesterday going; here is Xevious another arcade classic released in September of 1988. It was a great port and instant classic in the realms of basement dwellers.
You can't go wrong with this perfect arcade classic. Thankfully in September of 1988 Nintendo stopped us from all the quarter pumping at the pizza shop and let us play at home. Sure, you could already play at home with your Atari but this is about Nintendo, screw you.
Dearest Q*Bert, I had liked you for many years prior to the cold February home release to the NES in 1989 but once you came in that package it became love.
