OK, this is about arcade games that you feel deserve more competition.

I'll start it off.
It's sad to see perfect Pac -Man speedruns
Getting almost no new competition.
This was one of the earliest games to Speedrun.
Now Speedrunning has become huge.  Unfortunately, because Pac Man was arcade almost all those speed runners ignore the game.
I know there's valid reasons for this. But for me it's sad to see.

Since 2013 I have tried to get a Donkey Kong Junior Kong Off event...    I gave up on the idea by 2015 because everything about then was based around the fact I would fly to Richies Arcade on the East Coast.   This was before it closed.

I have held Donkey Kong Junior Events online and they have went quite well.
Donkey Kong 880,500 Kill Screen
Donkey Kong Junior 1,073,800 Kill screen
Donkey Kong 3  1,596,000
Crazy Kong 566,600  Kill screen.

You inspired a haiku:

Perfect Pac speedruns
almost no competition
it's so sad to see
