Many good ones but for me Asteroids was king. I found Pacman too boring.

I've played a bunch of arcade games, but on either my Commodore 64 or on a video game console.

For example, I've played Golden Axe, Donkey Kong, Joust, Asteroids, and Pac-Man plenty.

The arcade games I've played the most are probably Tekken 2, Tekken 3, and Soul Calibur.

(I had a light gun for PlayStation 1, but I don't think I got very far with Time Crisis.)

Asteroids was a hoot (vector grafix!!), but spent some time on Bandito, the space-castle thing, and Phoenix (?).

The occasional racing game at the bowling alley, etc., too.

Asteroids and Defender. Quit video games after turning Asteroids over.

Asteroids, Donkey Kong, Defender + Stargate, Tempest, Joust, Star Wars, Star Castle, Missile Command. Zaxxon looked neat, but game play didn’t live up to it.
