Help for popular game list from 1978 onward
« on: February 13, 2017, 05:04:34 pm »
I'm compiling a list of popular classic arcade games from 1978 and later. I want games that were popular and successful. I don't want games that were unpopular, obscure, or unsuccessful. Here's my list of games I think might have been popular or not (keep in mind I was not alive when these games were popular so I don't really know.) Let me know which games (or more) you think were considered "popular" and "successful". Sorry if my writing is bad, I just want help.

Definitely:

Asteroids
Pac-Man
Defender
Centipede
Missile Command
Donkey Kong
Ms. Pac-Man
Frogger

Q*bert
Star Wars
Tron
Tempest

Probably:
Galaxian
Battlezone
Berzerk
Phoenix
Gorf
Stargate

Gyruss
Spy Hunter
