My list is the result of an old listing work i've done in the late 80's and early 90's. At the time, no site like KLOV existed, and i wanted to build an accurate list of existing arcade games. Although i stopped maintaining the list years ago, i still let it online, as i plan to improve it with additionnal info sometime.
"shooting w/ character" means a game
where the scrolling depends on the movements of the player, such as COMMANDO or GRYZOR
"beat" is a fighting game with multiple simultaneous ennemies and scrolling action; like Kung Fu Master or
Double Dragons. On the other hand, one-to-one fighting games like Street Fighter or Ye Ar Kung Fu will be described as "fighting".
"fighting" : just see above!
"simulator" usually means there is a first-person view from inside (or just behind) a vehicle, it doesnt mean a realistic game.
