- Debut: 1991
The Sunset Riders game was one of the biggest and best arcade games of all time. Initially, the game was coin-operated like most other arcade games. But the reason for this was that Konami knew arcade games like this would put so much in a person’s path that they’d be gunned down in the game often. This was a side-scrolling run-and-gun shooter game. Thus, you were constantly being shot at as much as shooting others. People would get addicted to achieving the in-game goals, and constantly put money in the machine. Though something like it was already around, this game would eat your money quite often. Set in the American Old West, you’re playing as a bounty hunter. Yet the game works with one to four players, each facing the same conditions. The game was also recently revived for the Switch and PS4.
