Seems like pretty much.... everyone disagrees with you.

Anyway, it's obviously personal preference, but I think it's a bit much to say it's not even in contention for best ever.

Stepping out of the arcade....

Deja Vu was my favorite game for the Commodore 64.

I had enough coupons and so I got the 25th Anniversary Edition Galaga, Pac Man, Ms. Pac Man Tabletop Arcade game from Dave and Busters the other day. Here is what it looks like:

Playing this sure brings back memories! All three of these were some of my favorite classic arcade games.

It took 195,000 coupons to get this, but it was sure worth it!

You should look around for a board so you can upgrade your game. It's called a MULTICADE board. It will give you 60 of the classic games. I think it's around $150 for the upgrade. Very easy to install and very worth it.

Awesome. Thanks for the info. That price is close to what this game actually cost me. It cost me about $250 to win 195,000 coupons at Dave and Busters. I am an expert (literally an unstoppable force) on a couple of their ticket games. I get 40 to 80 thousand coupons each night that I go there, averaging about 15,000 coupons an hour.

I will look into that MULTICADE board and see if I like most of the games on it. This arcade game is a nice addition to my game room, and it doesn't take up much room.

Bruce Lee was killer. I was always the fat green guy that was supposed to help Bruce, but I usually kicked his ass.

I worked for Skyboy in Chicago. Midway is/was based here too - I think they might still have some sort of operation across from Hot Dougs.

This man speaks the truth. Goldeneye with 3 or 4 players = impossible to put the controllers down until eyelids declared TKO

My friend's husband works for Midway. He was the lead videographer for games like NFL Blitz, so he runs the thing where they get the NFL players to come in and put on those suits with a million little sensors. He was also the second in command on MK vs. DC Comics. He was telling me about it over dinner one night, sounded really cool.
Anyway, they are across from Hot Doug's, but I guess they're moving somewhere downtown in 2009.

Now THIS is a thread thats near and dear to my heart. I love the NES games. Anything less than N64 is "retro", in my opinion.

I was in portland, OR a few months back and there was a bar there with all retro game boxes. It was awesome.

If you really geek out you can find some online communities. I bought a 2008 version of tecmo super bowl, updated with current rosters and all for the NES. Its amazing that a forum like this exsts where they argue the merits of the Oakland offensive line like we do Aldens vs. AE.

I like my Q-bert story better.

Dig Dug
Foodfight
Joust
Donkey Kong
