I was a huge pinball guy, too...Addams Family and High Speed 2:The Getaway were my favorites.

The one that did: Top Skater.
The one that would, if I could find a machine: Pepper II. Not like you'll ever find a machine around here.

Yes, you serve beer. And you have to serve it fast. God, I loved that game.

Star Wars Pinball is my absolute favorite (though Guns n Roses pinball is a close second, I've just had less access to it) arcade machine of all time.

However, if money isn't an issue I have to say that there's really no better way to start your morning than going completely through House of the Dead 2. It was a favorite pre-opening ritual at GameWorks Seattle for Game Hosts. There's just something about blowing the crap out of a whole bunch of zombies before dealing with the general public... but I don't particularly suggest trying it on your own dime because the game takes on average 10-15 credits per person (both players are really needed) to finish. And that's why you see it all over the place, it is a serious money making machine.

Wow, I didn't think this was a tough one at first because I've always been more of a console gamer, but once I thought about it it was tough. I'd have to say that just barely it would go to Double Dragon. I remember once I went to a birthday party at Putt Putt and me and my friend stayed in the arcade while everyone else played golf. Then when it was time to open presents someone came and told us but we never left Double Dragon, not even to watch our friend open his presents.

Runners up are probably Rampage because it extra character on the arcade version, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles because one arcade party we had unlimited tokens and me and a friend played it until we beat it, and Ghosts and Goblins because they had it at my favorite pizza place.

Either NARC or Final Fight. My buddy and I put dozens of quarters into those for about two and a half summers. I think we beat them each two or three times.

Pinball would have to be Attack From Mars! (klov.com). Up until a year ago, I'd spend about 10 bucks a week on that thing (RIP Playland), and it was a finals week tradition of ours (along with not shaving until your last final) to go play pinball before each final (to relax).

Tekken 3
TMNT Arcade
Simpsons...Brother and I spent 20 dollars actually beating one day.

Finally a 80's classic GALAGA. I've found myself searching the old game out in every arcade I can find. I have no idea why I'm doing it either.

Yes, I had completely forgotten that one. It was one of my all-time favorites and I was actually old enough to be drinking beer while playing it, too.

In terms of pinball, one of the bowling alleys had an Austin Powers game (made after the second movie but before the third movie) not too long ago and I would devote much time after bowling a few games to play it.

Mortal Kombat II would be a second choice, followed by Street Fighter II.

I used to play alot of vids at Victoria Beach, where I spent every summer from the ages of 7 to 18. I played a TON of Street Fighter I, Off-Road, APB, and Golden Axe. Also, my friend and his brother worked at the Library there (where it was 25 cents to "rent" a book), and they would steal quarters so we could play the best arcade game ever: Snow Bros.

In later years, we poured copious amounts of money into the old WrestleFest game at the University of Winnipeg.

Mat Mania bay-bee!

"1........ 2........ THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!"

Man, that Coco Savage was one tough mofo.


Honourable Mention to:
- SF2
- Cyberball
- The two-cabinet WWF Wrestlefest. Damn, that was a fun game. When the Road Warriors would get you set for the Doomsday Device, the announcers' pained "Oh no!" is something I still quote to this day.
- WWF Superstars. Randy Savage was awesome in that game, as well he should've been. The trick with pulling the extra body out of Andre was one of the first cool things in video game I discovered.
- Punch-Out (the original). That Pizza Pasta was a little bitch.
- Pac-Man/Ms. Pac-Man. Probably the only game I actively seek out at Jillian's and such.

The last arcade game I could officially call my favorite was "Millipede". I still play the thing regularly on PS2 to this day. Pretty much EVERYTHING I play on PS2 is retro arcade crap from that era...I have fewer than a half dozen modern games made for PS2.

If you catch me in an arcade today (and THAT is limited to the one at the multiplex), I'm playing pinball. My favorites from back in my actual arcade days included Centaur, Pinbot, Addams Family, and Mr & Mrs Pac-Man.

I totally did NOT expect to see Qix in this thread, as I thought I might be the only one remembering that one. I apologize for assuming this, and not giving enough credit to the W's

Qix also gets the nod for me, above Bubble Bobble, LifeForce, Vanguard, Omega Race, BurgerTime, Tron, Joust, Crazy Taxi, and Berzerk. I tried explaining Berzerk to my son, and he could not get past the part about "the bouncing smiley face of death named Evil Otto".

Second that nomination (and heck most SNK and Campcom fighting games). Though the sidescrolling Dungeons and Dragons games were kinda fun too.

To this day my friends, and my brother always run out of money before me whenever I go with them to an arcade.

I gotta go with TEMPEST. The simpler the graphics, the better I was at them.

Rounding out my top five would be CRYSTAL CASTLES, DIG DUG, SPACE ACE, and TOOBIN', all in this order.

(Off subject... from the same company that did SPACE ACE and DRAGON SLAYER, there was another game that used scenes from Lupin The 3rd. Does anyone know the name of it. That and the one that used scenes from GALAXY EXPRESS 999. Those were fun, but if you know the movies, they were really easy to play.

Gotta go with Vs. Super Mario Bros., the one game I absolutely have to put a quarter into every time I see it. Also, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the eight-player version of X-Men, and Street Fighter II.

By the way, thanks for the link to VGMusic.com, Zed! Great site! Already downloaded several MIDIs from it.

WrestleWar!! OMG, I forgot about that insane game. I remember seeing that for the first time and putting in a quarter. They had the moves listed on the cabinet and I went for a pildriver in my first match and was flabbergasted to watch my guy leap about 30 feet in the air and plant the guy into the mat.

I spent about $20 on that game that day....

Rampart. Especially when you had 4 people playing and cannonballs flying everywhere.
