Up Down just got a Hyper Sports cab! Kreygasm Time to learn that game! <Allen>

Great game! Very unforgiving on bad timing/angles though. Think T&F 8or 9 spin Hammer throw and 2.47+ HJ type of timing/complexity. 

Have fun with it and please post your progress.

The NES is more accessible than the arcade platform, from both a physical and emulation standpoint.

Exactly. Plus people tend to follow others. More people SR NES so more people will also try and SR NES.  Its also something people remember about doing back in the 80's / 90's vs playing on that arcade cab in  your house :)

My whole point is 90% of NES ports look like garbage compared to the original arcade game.  For instance all three Donkey Kong's look like garbage compared to the arcade.
It's counterintuitive because the original better made version is less popular to speed run.
Wes though was right.  The crummy NES version is easier to obtain.

The NES is more popular than arcade games. It is that simple to me. It was "the" console for a large chunk of time, with little competition in either the arcade or home market. So, you have people picking games  to speedrun based on nostalgia, popularity, and recognizability (not a word, but you get it). It's just more prevalent, and other speedrunners who are younger do the same with newer consoles for a younger generation who lived those consoles and games.

Another reason would probably be the lack of score based games on consoles vs. arcade games which all (?) are score based.
