Renegade was better on the NES for sure.

Well Tekken arcade was based on the PS1 hardware so the extras on the ps1 obviously make it the better version overall, same for most Dreamcast conversions as it was closely linked with the Naomi hardware bar less ram etc
The post saying Sega Rally was better on the Saturn because of better handling?! Are you kidding me!? You can't compare playing it on Mame to playing it in the arcade with pedals and steering wheel, it's so much better than any home version that way.

i nearly spat my coffee over my laptop reading that. each to their own though!
