Pac-Man. enough said.
Donkey kong is my favorite arcade game it's a classic I have two t-shirts of it one is of Mario and it says the original since 1981 and what's so cool about it's when Mario was first introduce and I've been learning the history of donkey kong It all started with space shooting called radar scope and people hated it so shigeru miyamoto got a job at Nintendo and made it better the original idea was the arcade game of popeye but Nintendo didn't had right to do it so shigeru miyamoto looked up in the dictionary for the word stubborn like mule for a kong type ape who is donkey stubborn and kong means gorilla to combined the words donkey kong he was a gorilla beaks free out of his cage and kidnaps his keepers girlfriend and first Mario was carpenter that was a little man with a big nose and an even bigger heart
The reasons that I like donkey kong because it was the first arcade game that Mario appeared in he changed his name from jumpman to Mario and Pauline was first love interest and it's been around since I was born and I believe it's the number one arcade game
This game started MARIO. MARIO saved gaming. This game was also the first game with jumping - Ilikegames
Started the mario franchise
I thought it was on atari 2600
This is the best game ever hands down!
Ping. Pong. Ping. Pong
This wasn't even on arcade it was on the 2600. - myusernameisthis
It's just Pong...
I love dig dug it's very easy and fun
I LOVE TETRIS - 23windomt
It's really upsetting to see today's arcades lacking so much in puzzle games such as this timeless gem. I could play Tetris for hours! - Entranced98
Mario and Luigi will grip you in a compelling adventure. - refep
I love this game, just can get enough of it, spent too many a coin, only complaint is the bad controls
You'll only realize how many quarters you lost AFTER playing this game! - refep
The best video game. It has the weirdest villains, best soundtrack, and most Michael Jackson like goal-save the children that are tied up in corners. The classic white suit and fedora outfit appears in this and when there are multiple players, there are different colors. It is so entertain because it is both fun and hilarious. Best dance breaks! - Coatsy
Street Fighter is underrated nowadays, nobody ever talks about it. - myusernameisthis
This game was insanely popular when I was 10 years old. I remember kids dropping $20 in half an hour on this game. That says a lot! They must have made millions.
This game is my favorite arcade game, and the box is not creepy on the Sega dreamcast box which is creepy on the Q*bert PlayStation box.
The best of the more complex games which required acute multitasking skills.
Still a huge fan of this fun little game. Such a shame I don't see many DDR machines in arcades nowadays (I blame the chavs who randomly jump around on them and break the arrow buttons). Luckily I have a couple of PS2 versions so I can still enjoy it whenever I want to. - Entranced98
Good Game - VideoGamefan5
A game where making decisions controls the ending. Sounds great. But do you know of any modern console games like that? - Skullkid755
Come on! Only 39? And where is snow bros? - enzocarranza
Mappy is the best
Of Course, mappy is the best! - CasinLetsGoBowling
I think that it is cool
Tempest is so addictively fun, it should be way higher on the list. - NuMetalManiak
Wish there were more cabinets around nowadays - I was once lucky enough to find one in excellent condition and dumped like five credits in it in a row. - Entranced98
Very hard game but quite the classic! Much better than centipede
Of course it made the list! And you thought I forgot! - refep
