Well, I found this online emulator for the Aerosmith Revolution X video game. I never owned it as I'm not a gamer at all. I do have Guitar Hero Aerosmith (terrible at that too) I'd rather play a real guitar lol

I LOVED it!!! Used to play A LOT in arcades almost 25 years ago, I didn't even know Aerosmith back then, but the game was amazing (no pun intended). The I bought it for Sega and kept playing it. I came across it awhile ago. If any of you also played it. Did you ever come across this sort of "hidden scene" where you open a door and inside that little room you find Steven kinda making out with a girl? It happened to me only once, and honest to God, I don't know what did I do to get there!

The arcade version of this game was really good, but it didn't translate as well to the console versions or emulators. The arcade cabinet had mounted guns that acted more as a joystick, basically they didn't aim exactly where you pointed, but moving them in any direction moved the cursor in that same direction, so it wasn't a typical gun game, but was much funner then just using the controller to aim. The soundtrack was different in the Arcade version too. Midway licensed some of the classics from Sony, while Acclaim only got a license from Geffen to play songs from PV through GAG.
The Pizza Barn in Ossipee NH has a copy of this in their game room that I played about a year ago. The machine definitely needed some maintenance, and the conrols weren't very responsive so I didn't make it very far. I'll have to stop by there again one of these days to see if they fixed it. Hopefully they still have it.
When I was a kid I convinced myself the Super Nintendo version was good after paying $50 for it. I tried that version on an Emulator about a month ago, and it hasn't aged well. The Genesis version was alright too, but the sound and graphics and sound weren't quite as good. The Playstation and Saturn versions were complete hack jobs. I picked one up in the budget bin years later and couldn't believe how bad it was. I read before that Midway had a sequel planned but cancelled it due to how poorly the home ports were received.
Each member of the band was hidden somewhere in the game. It's been awhile but I think you find Steven by shooting a couple of mounted fish heads on the wall of a club, then the mirror in between them. Tom was in a bathroom taking a leak.
hell yeah, about 5 or 7 years ago I played the shit outta this game on a MAME emulator allowing me to play old arcade games on my desktop. As for finding hidden band members, I remember this one time in the game I got lost in this maze of boxes somewhere in a warehouse stage and somewhere at the dead end of the maze there was Brad sitting inside a bobcat doodling on his guitar.
About 5 years ago I also played a lot of the other game, Quest for fun. Gosh, it was awesome and super cheesy at the same time. I will never forget how much fun I had. On the other hand, it took me close to a year to get the game running.
as for Guitar Hero I still play it on my Playstation 2, oh yes I do, yes I do
