Arcade game tier list improvement
« on: January 27, 2017, 01:43:11 pm »
Hi,

So I really liked TarkanX's tier list for the Golden Age of Arcades over on ClassicArcadeGaming (http://www.classicarcadegaming.com/forums/index.php?topic=3356.0) However, I found that it wasn't entirely accurate (Make Trax? Frenzy? Tier 1? Really) and I would like if some people here would work on improving it and maybe adding post-Golden Age games. Let me know what you guys think.

There's nothing wrong with this game, because the list is not about good/bad games, it's about popular/obscure games. It doesn't seem right to put Frenzy on the same level as Berzerk.

Basically what I'm asking is what are the games that you think got the most play in the arcades?

What year?  I can go back to 1978 when I found a use for a quarter other than a McDonald's hamburger.  Yes that is dating me somewhat.
Thank God I am me.

Yeah 1978 seems like a good year to start, with the release of Space Invaders and all.

The original list only covers the Golden Age, but I think there should be another list for games after then (Gauntlet, Double Dragon, maybe Street Fighter II)

So basically what I'm wondering is are there any Tier 1 games you would move to tier 2 or 3 (Make Trax for example), or any Tier 2 or 3 games you would move to Tier 1 (Dragon's Lair for example)?

Have you read through this?

I went on "Classics" and there's some really obscure games on there!
