Star Wars (vector graphics)
I'd play that more if I had a yoke.  But if I see it in the arcades I play it every time.

Absolutely!

Robotron

If I could have mentioned more than one, I would have added Time Pilot and Gaplus  ;D

Viewpoint looks sweet! Haven't played that one yet.

I'm not crazy about the 80's sax music though...doesn't seem to fit a shooter.
Hopefully that's only for stage3  :dunno

Millipede

+1
For me, Millipede/Robotron are the pinnacle of arcade nirvana.

Like minds.

Robotron of course and Millipede in close second. I noticed Centipede mentioned a couple of times. Curious to know if you prefer Centipede over Millipede. I found once I started playing Millipede, Centipede became boring in comparison. If you 've only tried Centipede, give Millipede a whirl.

I am addicted to Athena. I swear, the game must cheat. I cannot possibly be as bad at this game as it seems.

But Berserk gets the #2 spot.

Robotron.  The very definition of a timeless classic.

...Donkey Kong 3 more often than you'd expect.  :D

it's almost impossible to pick just one game! I find my regular rotation of games is usually (in no particular order)-
Rtype
Joust
Robotron
Amidar
Burger Time
Donkey Kong 3

I'd rate Rtype highest on nostalgia for a couple of reasons. I remember first seeing it in the arcades and being mesmerized by how unique it was. And then when the Sega Master system version came out, I brought it home and played it non stop until I beat it.
However, it's funny, I remembered the graphics and music on the SMS version being soo awesomely arcade accurate, that is, until I played it recently. Looking at it now, I don't know how I ever played it with all that flickering. And the music sounds so weak and cheesy sounding compared to the arcade version that it's laughable. I guess everything "glows" in the auroa of nostalgia.

I'd have to say Time Pilot.  Its the only game that I don't suck at (meaning I can last about 4.5 minutes on a single credit on this game).   :)


The Golden Age.  Sucked quarters like water and I loved it.

My favorite changes.  Right now it's Mr. Do!. Or Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon.  Depends on why/when I'm playing.

Gyruss is at the top of my list along with robotron and star castle. Its too hard to choose just one.  :banghead:

Nemesis (gradius) and Shinobi. Although when I have people over its usually Marvel Vs Capcom that gets the most play.
