Favorite 1980's arcade game that you're good at

Postby FireyPaperMario » Tue Mar 29, 2016 8:12 am

This question is easy if you guys are one of these listed:

  • Play the 1980's arcade machines during the 80's (I'll bet there's members of the community who were born in the 80's or 70's, ;) )
  • Have parents who knows those old-school arcade games since before you were born
  • You're classically trained like me! ^.^')
My answer for this topic is "Donkey Kong 1", "Donkey Kong Jr.", & "Gauntlet". :D

Why limit it to 1980s?

Many great arcade video games were created during that decade tbh.

So? You could say the same about every decade after that. Companies are still creating arcade games and they have by no means dropped in terms of quality compared to the 1980s games. I personally have fond memories of playing Ocean Hunter (release 1998), and am pretty good at it (or was when I was a child), but I can't mention it because of the restriction.

I think they're referring to the Classic 2D arcade games like Donkey Kong, Pacman, Galaga, Centipede, Space Invaders, Tetris, Frogger, etc.

I enjoyed the 1940 games (1941, 1942, 1943).

My personal favorite has to be Dig Dug. I had it on Namco Museum for GBA back in the day, and I played that for hours!

I haven't played many of the games when they were actually in arcades, but I did play some of them through console ports. My current favorite has to be Rampage from 1986 by Midway.
