The laserdisc game that used Lupin III footage was called Cliff Hanger. I remember watching someone else play it in the arcade long before I knew who Lupin was.
Don't know anything about Galaxy Express 999, though.
On topic, my faves back in the day were Tempest, Dig Dug, Dragon's Lair, and Captain America and the Avengers.

Dang, this thread popped up again after five years. Holy cow.
By the by, no one got the number of players right for the two-screen X-Men game, myself included: It was six players, actually, those being Cyclops, Colossus, Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler and (ha!) Dazzler.
Throw Galaga and Ms. Pac-Man on there from my previous post.

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).
You sir, are awesome.

It'll do that.
Originally posted by CRZI have to say I was more into pinball - if I had to pick JUST one, it would probably be ...hell, I can't remember the name of it, but it was the first "Mario World" pinball machine. I also liked Hook, Addams Family, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Terminator 2, Gilligan's Island...hmm, you can pretty much tell which five year period I was into pinball.
Looks like it was the same five years as me. I just got Pinball Arcade for the PS4, which lets you buy emulations of classic real-world pinball tables, and I got Addams Family, ST:TNG, and Terminator 2, along with The Twilight Zone. I'm guessing there isn't much demand for the World Cup '94 table, but I'd like that one too.

Do they have Pin-Bot? I only played one pinball game on a regular basis and that was it. I LOVED that game.
The student residence I worked at while in college had Aerofighters. Definitely dropped many coins in there.
GI Joe, which my best friend from home and I beat.
The original Bust-A-Move, I welcomed all challengers.
And lastly, and don't judge me here, Pac-man. Went to karaoke with some friends, there was a Pac-man arcade machine there. I spent all night playing Pac-man because shut up about being social I'm playing Pac-man.

Inevitably, each year I walk through a shopping mall and get a ridiculous Christmas song in my head. This year, Boney M's "Mary's Boy Child/Oh My Lord" has been in and out of my head for the past five days. Someone please shoot me.
