GoB Midway

Midway Arcade Origins is a compilation of some of Midway’s more well-known arcade hits. The compilation was released in North America for the Xbox 360 & PS4 in November 2012. As with the Sonics collection there is a little bit of something for every gamer here and this is a list of some of the more well-known titles.


  • Spy Hunter I, II
  • Rampage
  • Gauntlet I & II
  • Super Off Road

There are a ton of hours of enjoyable gameplay within this compilation and I recommend either title, go for the Midway if you enjoy arcade style games and Sonics when you are looking for some 16-bit fun.
