  • Top 5 arcade video games?

    On MSNBC today, I noticed that they had done a story about the top 5 arcade video games. According to thier list, the top games are:

    Space Invaders (1978)
    Centipede (1980)
    Tempest (1980)
    PacMan (1980)
    Donkey Kong (1981)

    I'd like to know who created this list, because who the hell would think Tempest is one of the top 5 games? I can understand Space Invaders, PacMan, and Donkey Kong... Centipede is pushing it, but Tempest? Come on now.

    So which ones do you think should be on this list? Should Joust be on there? Or maybe Street Fighter? Or what about Dragon's Lair?


    Btw, the story can be found at http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20285514/?GT1=10252

        Tempest was terrible. It must be the writer of the article loved it.

              Tempest was not the greatest game, but most of the arcades I had been too they were really busy surprisingly.
              We used to have about 5 arcades during the trend. I wish they had the old digital Star Wars game.

                Awesome Skywygrl!

                I LOVED Discs of tron. Very cool to have your own games.

                Enjoy!~

                      I was never much of a video gamer. But two games I played every time we went to Disneyland were Star Wars and (my favorite) the sit-down version of Space Harriers. I went back years later and walked around the arcade only to find the game missing. I was 27 and cried.

                        I have Centipede at home (bought it from a friend whose Mom worked at Magic Mountain and got it in an employee auction...so its from the Magic Mountain arcade). Its a mess, but still works great!

                        My favorite though was Crystal Castles.

                        Space Invaders
                        Crystal Castles

                        A little piece of heaven
