I remember crushing quite a few guys, trying to land as close as possible to them (they ran too slow!!!!).

this is almost how I remember it on my Atari. the problem is that you can't truly show a game like Choplifter because the programmer was clever and took advantage of the limitations of CRT and RF inputs at higher resolutions. the CRT artifacting produced additional color that's not seen in an emulator or high resolution monitor. there are emulator tricks to show the artifacting but they're only approximations.
the only way to show the way it looked on an Atari would be camcord it off of an old CRT with RF input (instead of using higher quality composite) and even then that's not true representation of what your eyes are seeing.
