First, a visit to Majorca around 2000- the arcades there were fairly outdated, so they had a lot of older games, like The Punisher, Super Pang, Track & Field, and most importantly, Cadillacs & Dinosaurs. At the time I was heavily into 3D games on the N64 and Playstation, but I'd never heard of any of these games and was amazed by them. There was also Metal Slug 2 which completely blew me away- it was only 2 years old at the time but it looked incredible, so from there I started looking into old arcade games and the like... (To this day MS2 and C&D are some of my favourite games)
I'm pretty sure I visited Majorca around the same time and was also very pleasantly surprised by the wealth of awesome titles in the arcades. It was this family holiday that got me hooked on Marvel Vs Capcom.
