Top 10 Classic Namco Arcade Games

A list of the most memorable arcade titles by Namco.

The Top Ten

1 Pac-Man Pac-Man

I do like this game, but I suck at it. Maybe I will like it more if I get better. But galaga is my favorite because it's the game I've got down to a science, and I've played galaga my whole life.

Pac man the best arcade game of all time and I think the best Atari game ever scratch that it is

Namco's flagship character and the most popular of the namco games - htoutlaws2012

This game is so addicting and fun! You gotta love it!

2 Galaga Galaga

Galaga is an amazing game! Easily my favorite arcade game ever

This game is still fun to this day you can play this on certain game systems and the controls haven't changed ever since awesome arcade shooter. - htoutlaws2012

Total classic! Definitely number 1!

I've been playing this my whole life and no arcade game compares to this!

It’s way better than regular Pac-Man to me. - AliciaMae

The most influential female video game character came from this game, and in my opinion the game just plays better than pac man. - GreninjaGuy

8 Pole Position II Pole Position II

More races to choose and very fun for a racing game as long as you get use to the controls - htoutlaws2012

9 Galaxian Galaxian

If you like slow paced games this game is for you - htoutlaws2012

10 Xevious Xevious

Tetsuya Mizuguchi played this game and the SFX was like music to him. That was one of the inspirations for Rez, one of my favorite games of all time. I also like this game because it reminds me a bit of Touhou. - Chikinan

The Contenders

11 Super Pac-Man Super Pac-Man

Easier than the original Pac Man.

12 Rally-X

New Rally-X is better

13 Ridge Racer
14 Bravoman
15 Pole Position
16 Dragon Buster Dragon Buster

Think of it as the main character looks like link from legend of Zelda with some RPG elements to it - htoutlaws2012

17 Wonder Momo
18 Time Crisis
19 Shadow Land
20 Pac-Mania Pac-Mania

The only pacman game that you can jump very revoutional for the time - htoutlaws2012

21 Baraduke
22 Dragon Spirit
23 Time Crisis 2
24 Alpine Racer
25 Space Invaders

This game should be top ten

Space Invaders isn't even a Namco game, it was made by Taito

26 Sky Kid
27 Tekken 3
28 Pac & Pal
29 Legend of Valkyrie
30 Dig Dug II
31 Assault
32 The Tower of Druaga

What? This game is terrible! The controls are awkward, the graphics are bland, the gameplay is slow and boring, the mazes are a chore to navigate, the music is annoying, the levels are repetitive, the enemies are clumsy, and the whole experience is clunky and definitely not worth your time. "The Tower of Druaga" doesn't measure up to ONE of the other arcade titles by Namco. Not even close! Spend your quarter on "Pac-Man", "Dig-Dug", or "Galaga", but unless you want to waste a quarter, don't play "The Tower of Druaga"!

33 Motos

This game is truly something else, but not in the bad sense. In fact, it's kinda hectic at times! It should get more recognition, since the gameplay, although repetitive, is really fun and satisfying, even.

34 Libble Rabble
35 Final Furlong

I love this game!

36 Grobda
37 Galaga (arranged)
38 Pac-Man (arranged)
39 Dig Dug (arranged)
40 New Rally-X
41 Pac-Land

"Pac-Land" is incredibly lame! You play a Pac-Man who's constantly running out of energy as if he was dying, and all you do is take a walk through your neighborhood, jumping over and ducking under flying ghosts, while munching the occasional fruit treat or power pellet. The game offers little challenge, the levels are practically the same, with the occasional forest, the controls are clunky, and the experience is very shallow and boring. It's a game that you will play once, and never play again. The only two games by Namco I can think of that are worse than "Pac-Land" are "The Tower of Druaga", and "Phozon". Don't waste your precious money on this suck fest, unless you're an old geezer who likes to take walks for fun.
