Old school wrestling games, plenty of memories there lol. Mainly on the PS1, didn't get the chance to play the N64 ones until a couple of years ago. WrestleMania: The Arcade Game isn't a classic, but it was a ton of fun. Same for In Your House: The Arcade Game. Was never that into the likes of street fighter and mortal kombat back then because I couldn't do all the big complicated moves. WM and IYH were similar in how they controlled, but much more simplified AND the instructions manual told you how to do the finishers so I had no problem . Then Warzone and Attitude came along and they mixed the old arcade fighting style with the upcoming grappling style, where you had loads of moves you could execute... but a bazillion button combinations to remember in order to do them. Fuck that shit. Never got into those 2.

Then Mayhem came around. At the time I was able to see more WCW than WWF, so I was hyped like FUCK for it to come out. Smackdown was coming out around the same time I think, and I definitely wanted it after seeing the screenshots in Planet Playstation of the cage match. So when I was ordering some discs once (a guy called Roy on the market had a list and you just phoned him up with orders lol), I asked if he had Mayhem in yet. He said no, but asked if it was a wrestling game. I said yeah, and he said he had a new one called WWF Smackdown in. I the absolute fuck out because it looked like the better game even if I was more into WCW at the time. Man, what a long wait it was until the next day when he delivered it. Got Mayhem a week later. Would play an hour or so of one game then an hour or so of the other, and do that for like, a day . Mayhem was cool with commentary and a roster I was more familiar with, while SD had better match types (Mayhem seemed to have about 10 versions of a No DQ match lol) and a more organised season mode.

And then SD 2 came out, along with Backstage Assault. BA was Mayhem with an updated roster... AND NO RING. A wrestling game without a ring. The fuck is this shit? Backyard wrestling? SD 2 was far too awesome anyway, so even if BA was good I likely wouldn't have given it the same kind of attention as the first one.

I think it's because I couldn't stand Thunder, I couldn't play it for some reason and ended up button bashing the hell of it. I can remember getting Mayhem eventually though for a few quid, which one was the one where they literally build Goldberg in the intro?
Haha we did for about a week then it was back to normal. Until we almost killed him with a double suplex, then we stopped for err... again another week.

Kids eh?

All Japan featuring Virtua on the SEGA Saturn and WCW vs NWO world tour on the N64 were the first wreslting games to completely blow me away in terms of what can be done on a 3d engine. At the time I didn't own a PS1, but my friend did and he rented WCW vs the world which wasn't too bad ether despite not being as good as the first two I mentioned.

The wrestling game I clocked the most hours playing in my life was WWF RAW on the Snes, but I was very young at the time and had more time to waste

Backstage Assault was absolutely fucking terrible. Just complete and total ass gravy.

WCW Mayhem was the best wrestling game released by WCW. It had an awesome roster and gameplay.

Mayhem was great, I prefer Revenge though. Thunder was terrible, I remember the game slowing the fuck down when more than 2 wrestlers were in a match.

Mayhem was the only PS1 WCW title I could even stand playing. Played Nitro & Thunder once and ended up destroying them with a BB Gun. While I did enjoy Mayhem, it couldn't compare to Revenge in my eyes. Absolutely loved playing Revenge and spent countless hours playing it.

Smackdown: Shut Your Mouth and Here Comes The Pain were always fun to play. I used to love playing the royal Rumble in Smackdown Just Bring It and I should've made a Ministry Undertaker Caw on there.
