Just do what the damn title says. Use this thread to discuss about your favorite Arcade games, consoles etc.

My favorite arcade games? Well I forgot a hell lot of them but there are 2 I will never forget all my life. Super Mario Bros and Pacman. The NES was the only console that I owned all my life.

I could never get past even the first level, lol I was such a bad gamer at that time. But this has to be the game I played on most on my NES. I only got to the 2nd level once I think.

Not as popular as Mario but a legend never the less. Harder than Mario but really fun and addictive.

I miss my NES, I used to play other games like Batman and some Olympic game and there was this one game where you could plant plants and water and stuff. I was stupid enough to break the controller one day and I could never play on my NES again and so I had to throw it away.(It was originally my cousins).

oh I lived on Super Mario Bros on the NES when I was a little kid, even got the GBA port recently smile.gif

I play a game called warbade which is not that old but it is based off retro games like space invaders and looks like a retro game (deliberately) and it is an arcade game tounge.gif

I don't want to bump that mate.

EDIT: Let's hope that someone doesn't bump that now. confused.gif

2nd EDIT: Looks like a guy called 'ExtremeSW' is getting ready to bump, Let's hope he never does.

Used to play a lot of Top Gear, FIFA 98, Super Mario World, Rock n Roll Racing with my folks on NES.
Spent my time more on it than in school.

I also played a lot of arcade games, such as The King of Fighter series, Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, Metal Slug series...(finished every one of them)
Damn, there were plenty of great games when i was a kid.

Shame that games are not like that anymore.

The Atari had some great games, but they were nowhere near as good as their arcade versions. Here's me unboxing my Atari in 1981:

I kept that for a few years, then swapped it for a green screen computer that looked exactly like the ones in Fallout 3. That computer baffled me, so I then swapped that for a Commodore Vic-20. I kinda lost interest about that time, because the games on those systems didn't have one tenth of the fidelity of the arcade cabinets. God knows what became of my Vic-20.

Arcade cabinet games reigned supreme until the first Nintendo system became universally popular, and I played a lot on my nephew's while I was bumming around Australia in 1991. I moved to Grand Cayman and lived alone, so I got myself a SNES which I sold when I left in 1993. I didn't play another VG until I got an N64 in 2000, which is I think where retro ends and modern begins.

I can still vividly remember when 'Space Invaders' landed at my local youth club. It was like something from another world - I was absolutely in awe of it. I think this has to be one of the most memorable of all games for me. There was one in a holiday camp I was at as a kid. It was the cockpit version modelled on the x-wing
