Yeah but it was so much more than Space Invaders. Plus, you can still find Galaga machines in places, really you can, how many Space Invaders machines can you find. Same goes for pac-man/ms. Pac-Man. I will say I love the MS. don't like the Mr. all that much.

I'm not up on my arcade lore... what exactly is the difference?

Your opinion is BULLSHIT!

TMNT/X-Men/Simpsons are all basically the same game.
You bite your fucking tongue! Simpsons had team up moves! X-Men had a bizarre use of Colossus's power (He shot a giant energy orb out from around his body? Really?). And Ninja Turtles had Turtles (SPOILER ALERT: Splinter is a giant rat).

But seriously in the the interest of picking apart a list that no single person will ever agree about 100% (including probably the guy who wrote it) and in the fine tradition of internet hyperbole: The omission of Gauntlet, X-Men, and Golden Axe make this entire list a steaming pile of shit that I can barely even force myself to look at.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Time-Crisis.jpg

25. Time Crisis (Namco)
A lot of shoot-em-up games ruled the arcade back in the day, but Time Crisis stood out for one specific reason -- a well-implemented foot pedal. Using it to hide behind objects and reload your gun added some strategy to the usual run-and-gun play. Excellent boss fights (particularly your final face-off with the notorious Wild Dog) rule here, too. The game was later ported to the PlayStation and was followed by four sequels, including the more recent Time Crisis 4.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Simpsons-Arcade.jpg

24. The Simpsons (Konami)
While they were blatantly victimized on home consoles by the likes of Acclaim, Matt Groening's dysfunctional family found bliss in the arcades thanks to Konami. This four-player beat-em-up extravaganza features eight levels of comical Simpsons mania, as well as cameo appearances by a variety of characters and co-op attacks. These include Homer and Marge rolling around together like a bowling ball, as well as Lisa and Bart holding hands and running around screaming.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Dragons-Lair.jpg

23. Dragon's Lair (Cinematronics)
It just wouldn't be a best of list if we didn't include Dirk the Daring. The original Dragon's Lair didn't have that much gameplay to it it lasts about 20 minutes in all but the way players controlled this animated character through a series of pre-set perils in a dragon's castle was wow-worthy all the same. The game was later ported to nearly every home console and debuted on Blu-ray last year.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/San-Francisco-Rush.jpg

22. San Francisco Rush (Midway)
Arcade racers just can't be beat, especially when you race against friends. What makes Midway's jaunt through San Francisco so spectacular is its crazy stunts. One minute, you're cruising down a side street, and the next, you're flying through the air, jumping over buildings in an attempt to grab the lead. The design is near flawless and the numerous tracks (six in all) offer variety. The game was later ported to N64 and followed by various sequels but nothing beats the initial Rush.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Tetris.jpg

21. Tetris (Atari)
Alexey Pajitnov's classic puzzle game had already distracted millions of PC users at home before its arcade debut, but Atari added a fresh touch by including a competitive two-player versus mode. In it, you must keep your pieces from falling out of whack while maintaining a higher score than your buddy. Tengen ported the game to the NES. However, due to Nintendo having a stranglehold on the franchise, it was put out of print shortly following its release. You can still find it on Ebay, though.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Final-Fight.jpg

20. Final Fight (Capcom)
The Mad Gear Gang wanted control over Metro City, so they kidnapped the mayor's daughter, Jessica, in an attempt to make change his mind. So what does Haggar do about it? He calls on Guy and Cody to kick major butt. This beat-em-up introduced several classic characters to the Capcom lexicon, while also enabling players to team up and pound enemies with weapons and regain lost health with hot, steaming ham. The game's still fun to play, too. Where else can you pound on a guy named Damnd?

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Mortal-Kombat.jpg

19. Mortal Kombat (Midway)
"Fatality!" This jarring word changed the face of gaming forever when Mortal Kombat made its arcade debut in 1992. The game utilized motion-captured actors in several roles, including a mercenary, a Bruce Lee-like warrior named Liu Kang and a pair of masked ninjas with devastating skills. Where it was most memorable (and controversial), though, was with its fatalities you can literally rip someone's head from their shoulders with the right joystick motions.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Dig-Dug.jpg

18. Dig-Dug (Atari)
1982's Dig-Dug introduced a fun new play tactic unheard of before in a video game. Instead of shooting enemies, you had to finish them off by either crushing them with rocks or pumping them full of air until they exploded. The game has since become a favorite in a number of Namco Museum compilations, and can be purchased through Xbox Live for a meager 400 points ($5). It's definitely worth it just to pop a few Pookas and Fygars.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Dance-Dance-Revolution.jpg

17. Dance Dance Revolution (Konami)
You might look absolutely silly playing it, but Dance Dance Revolution is worth the risk. This phenomenal dancing game requires you to hit lit-up arrows in time with the on-screen cursors while a song plays in the background. DDR has since spawned several sequels and spin-offs, but nothing beats the original. Be sure to shake your groove thing to a remix of "Have You Never Been Mellow."

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/After-Burner.jpg

16. After Burner (Sega)
After Burner is ferociously kinetic. You take control of an F-14 as it blazes through the sky, dodging incoming missiles while shooting down airborne and ground targets. It moves incredibly fast, requiring you to perform teeth-rattling barrel rolls every once in a while. The game has since been ported to the Sega Genesis and later spawned the beautiful high-tech sequel After Burner Climax. Sega, we're still waiting on that Xbox 360 port.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/NBA-Jam.jpg

15. NBA Jam (Midway)
Sure, NFL Blitz was memorable for its over-the-top leg drops and hard-hitting action. When it comes to multiplayer arcade sports action, though, nothing beats the Jam. This fun basketball game features all sorts of b-ball hijinks, from stolen balls to fast lane passes to high-flying dunks that go twenty feet in the air before finally landing. The player ranking system was also ideal, as the game stored your stats on a specific machine by entering your initials.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Donkey-Kong.jpg

14. Donkey Kong (Nintendo)
Aside from being an excellent game, Donkey Kong introduced the world to both Mario (then known as Jumpman) and its designer, Shigeru Miyamoto, who went on to create some of the world's greatest video games. The game itself is still a classic, with lots of barrel-bashing, girter-jumping platforming action. It's so iconic that it became a topic of discussion in last year's film documentary The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Virtua-Fighter-2.jpg

13. Virtua Fighter 2 (Sega)
While 3-D fighters are a dime a dozen these days, only one company really nailed it on the head back in 1994. Sega's Virtua Fighter 2 advanced the genre with more realistic looking characters, more dynamic gameplay, two great new additions (a quick-moving kid and a happy old drunk fighter with crazy moves) and best of all, limitless multiplayer possibilities. Sega later ported it to its Saturn console in near-flawless form, making it one of the machine's most popular games.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Joust.jpg

12. Joust (Williams)
In Joust, your goal is simple stay alive as long as you can. You and a friend ride on winged birds, "jousting" with other enemy riders and dethroning them before they do the same to you. The game features superb co-op gameplay, as well as enthralling changes to each stage. This includes disappearing platforms, fiery pits and of course, the dreaded Pterodactyl. You can download it through the PlayStation Network or Xbox Live for a reasonable $5. You'd have to be a birdbrain to turn down that deal.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Teenage-Mutant-NinjaTurtles.jpg

11. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Konami)
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles revolutionized arcade games because of its four-player madness. For the first time, players could control Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michaelangelo collectively as they kicked Foot Clan butt and took on the Shredder over eight stages. The game's still a hit nowadays in various Chuck E. Cheese locations, and is a big hit on Xbox Live Arcade. Cowabunga!

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Tempet.jpg

10. Tempest (Atari)
Many home versions of this game exist, including a recent release on Xbox Live Arcade. However, nothing beats playing the arcade game because you have access to the very cool "spinner knob." You control a spaceship and must navigate around a grid while shooting enemies that emerge from its center. From there, you actually zoom into the center to reach the next stage, while avoiding spikes left behind by certain enemies. The shooting action still never gets old.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Space-Invaders.jpg

9. Space Invaders (Taito)
In Space Invaders, you defend the Earth or die trying. A group of rapidly descending invaders inch their way towards your base, and it's up to you to shoot them before it's too late. The push-button gameplay seems primitive nowadays, but it's still a lot of fun, as indicated by Taito's recently revamped arcade cabinet featuring Invaders and the strategy game Qix. We personally like taking potshots at the mother ship for the "mystery" score.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Pong.jpg

8. Pong (Atari)
Pong couldn't be any easier to describe. It's a game with two paddles and a ball, and you score on your opponent by deflecting it past their defense. One of the first arcade games ever made, Pong made its debut in California-based Andy Capp's Tavern in 1972. The game was so popular that the owner complained when it was filled beyond capacity with quarters. Pong still has its place in the industry, particularly as a hidden mini-game in Mortal Kombat II. Yes, a Mortal Kombat game.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Daytona-USA.jpg

7. Daytona USA (Sega)
"Daytona, let's go away!" Daytona USA is the definitive arcade driving experience, still popular in arcade establishments today including most Dave and Buster's locations. The game features high-speed racing action across three tracks, moving at a zippy 60 frames per second with four optional camera angles. Playing against a friend is fun, but you haven't lived until you've taken part in an eight-player race and taken the victory in the last lap.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Ms.-Pac-Man.jpg

6. Ms. Pac-Man (Bally/Midway)
Behind every Pac-Man is a strong Ms. Pac-Man. Bally/Midway's follow-up to the arcade original dot chomper advanced the formula in a number of ways, including more unpredictable movement of the ghost enemies, better designed mazes to roam through while eating dots and power pills, and of course, the heartwarming story of how Ms. Pac-Man got to meet her beloved. The game is available through Xbox Live Arcade for a mere 400 points. Get it.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Robotron-2084.jpg

5. Robotron 2084 (Williams)
The future is bleak. Robotrons have taken over the Earth and are threatening families everywhere. It's up to you, a custom built robotic defender, to shoot enemies and save the last remaining humans. The dual-joystick action makes this a bonafide classic, with one controlling your movement and the other your direction of fire. The game gets progressively harder with each stage, especially when it introduces gasp the drone-converting Brains. It's available through Xbox Live Arcade for $5.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Asteroids.jpg

4. Asteroids (Atari)
One of the more popular early arcade games, Asteroids turned out to be a big hit for Atari. This game lets you control a ship through the deep voids of space, shooting asteroids of all shapes and sizes and the occasional UFO invader. At times, the vector graphics got a little too bright and the multi-button control set-up confused novice players. However, it's an addictive shooting pleasure. Get it on Xbox Live Arcade for 400 points ($5).

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Defender.jpg

3. Defender (Williams)
The Earth is under attack by alien invaders that want to enslave the human race. While the formula sounds familiar, Defender is anything but. The challenge here is that you have to play both offense and defense, shooting down swarms of enemies while keeping members of the human race alive. Our favorite moment is when we shoot down an invader trying to kidnap a human, and then catch them in mid-air for a safe rescue. Of course, it's fun to watch them plummet to their doom as well.

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Street-Fighter-II.jpg

2. Street Fighter II (Capcom)
Although it's not the original game in the series, Street Fighter II dynamically changed the face of arcade gaming with its stylish fighting action, superb controls and awesome presentation. Fighters select from eight world warriors and duke it out to score an opportunity to face the evil M. Bison, one of the most diabolical final bosses ever created. The game's still a big hit on Xbox Live Arcade (it constantly places in the top 10) and a new sequel, Street Fighter IV, is set to debut this year. HADOUKEN!

http://o.aolcdn.com/gd-media/galleries/372/Pac-Man.jpg

1. Pac-Man (Bally/Midway)
Of course, we save the best for last and Pac-Man is simply the best. This game introduced the world to a phenomenon that's still going strong today, on Xbox Live and elsewhere. Players control a dot-munching lunatic through a series of mazes while avoiding ghosts and gobbling power pills, which temporarily turns the tables on his enemies. The game spawned numerous sequels, along with a TV show, various pieces of memorabilia, a breakfast cereal and even the lovable "Pac-Man Fever" rock album. Pac-Man will live on as the greatest thing going in arcades and elsewhere, for that matter.

Space Invaders should be number 1.
X-Men should be on there (I pumped so much money into that game)

nihilance
05-20-2008, 09:38 AM
Some of these on the list I can understand even though later iterations were superior. Some of the list are clearly redundant choices and one should have been omitted to make room for another game (Pac-Man/Ms. Pac-Man, Simpsons/TMNT, Dayton/San Fran).

Smash TV lovers...Robotron 2084 is your representative. And I also agree that Galaga should have been there with (or instead of) Space Invaders.

Other big omissions:

Spy Hunter
Centipede
Star Wars
Qix
Q-bert
Xenophobe
Gauntlet
Frogger
Sinistar
Marble Madness
Paperboy
Track N Field
Rampage

And about another 1000 that I'm forgetting at the moment.

i loved discs of tron, though it shouldn't be on the list.

Nice. It's been so long since I played pinball...I really need to get to a retro arcade sometime soon.

NBA Jam is on the list. And yeah, I wasted a lot of quarters on it.

My favorite of the Midway Pinball games were Addams Family, Creature From the Black Lagoon and Indiana Jones.

Adams Family is my all-time favorite. But I think those machines are crazy expensive.

That's a good one.

I remember liking the Twilight Zone one quite a bit as well.
