    My home page is google when I fire up Explorer, and the PacMan theme blaring out scared the [email protected] out of me. That would go down well in an open plan office!

    Actually it would irritate me. I couldn't last more than the first three rounds, ever.

    I gave my quarters to several other games though.
    I remember how mad I got when they brought out the first 50 cent game instead of costing a quarter. :lol:

    I played one man and instantly recalled why I hated that game as a kid.

    At least Asteriods was random. Pac-man was just a pattern game. You piss away enough quarters you eventually memorized the pattern. Boring.

    One game was enough for me. Always liked Spyhunter myself in the arcade, or Dig-Dug, or Mario Brothers.

    Yeah, I played a few rounds...and it's still annoying as it was all those years ago...

    If Google wants to impress me, then put Defender up there...now that was an Arcade game! (spent MANY a quarter on that game) :lol:

    Defender was a great game. Galaga was a personal favorite.

    I'm with you Messy. I loved Galaga.

    I hated:
    Pacman - boring
    Defender - I just sucked at it
    Joust - I stunk at that game too
    Donkey Kong - In fact, I hate all Mario games.
    Tetris - probably my #1 most hated game.

    Loved:
    Galaga
    Asteroids
    Pole Position
    Centipede
    Space Invaders
    Xevious

    There were many more, but these stand out to me.

    I liked Pole Position, Missile Command, Zaxxon and a several others that I can't remember their names.

    This site may bring back some memories.
    1980s arcade games

    Side- and top-scrollers like Shinobi, Zaxxon, Sky Shark, and Black Tiger were always my favorites. Nowadays, you walk into an arcade, and there's 50 different versions of pretty much the exact same fighting game, or some cheezy racing game where you actually get to sit on a cheap plastic motorcycle or jetski, but the games cost a buck now. What happened to the days when arcade games were actually arcade games????
