What is your favourite arcade game of all time?

Postby jasonec » Thu Mar 16, 2017 8:39 am

This is to settle an argument with someone who thinks that most collectors will list DK as their favourite arcade game (I seriously suspect he jerks off to Donkey Kong when no one is looking)......
Donkey Kong, Burgertime, Galaga, Pac-man, Ms.Pac-man, Missile Command, Robotron, Dig Dug, Space Invaders, Arkanoid, Class of '81, Raiden, Tetris

Donkey Kong isn't even in my top 10.

To be honest I was never much of a fan of Donkey Kong, but as my kids start to get into the classics they really resonate with DK & Pac-Man. Maybe because they recognize them. I have to admit it's pulling me in.
Vids: Area 51, Double Dragon, 60in1 Cocktail, Popeye replica on pi3, Mario Bros mini cab
Pins: Last Action Hero, Spares & Strikes
Looking for: Double Dragon 1 & 2 PCB in good working order (non-bootleg)

Not at all. But it's the next game I'm going to unlock in the cabinets I made my kids. It's simple enough for 4 year olds.

They aren't ready for Robotron yet.

I forget the stat they spit out in King of Kong - Fistful of quarters. Something like the average game of Donkey kong lasts like a minute or something?

It is a brutally unforgiving game, what fun is that? Not even in my top 1000 games of all time.
I want more games...

How could I pick just one? I love so many, but I always come back to Robotron.

All by myself! Well, plus the masturbating DK guy, but he looks too busy to vote right now.
