Chopper command was a good one. I also loved Karateka. ZZ Top Eliminator was great video game playing music.

Missile command was one of my favorites in the arcade.

Zelda was a legend

Asteroids at a wedding reception one night, all night was pretty damn fun, and a lot of quarters! laugh

Great memories. What I could have done with all of those quarters...

Inspired by the fun of 8bit.com (thanks for that), I searched for my favorite arcade game - I think it was the only one that I ever finished - Capcom's 1942, and I found a playable online version at arcade-gameover.com, along with some other great games, like Commando and Ghosts 'n Goblins.

Ooooooo.... 1942... I remember playing that in the arcade a lot. 1943 wasn't quite as good, but I don't remember why.
