My favorite real arcade machine memories aren't exactly tied to the best games.

- Golden Axe 3
- Smash TV
- X-Men VS Street Fighter
- The Simpsons (The first arcade game I ever beat!)
- Mortal Kombat
- Ms. Pac Man
- Ninja Baseball Bat Man (I remember loving this game but they took it out of my local arcade after only having it like a month )
- Skeeball

Awesome video games! I didn't remember some of those. By the way I forgot about light gun games, I'm pretty good at them, my favourite one is Time Crisis 2, but I think the first one I saw and it made me go whoah, was Lethal Enforcers. :laugh:

What I remember most is the ones, in the old arcade next to my home, that made most noise even when nobody was playing: Galaxian and Pinball Action.

Elevator Action - use to be late to 7 grade science class because of this one.

Spy Hunter - The experience playing it can only be replicated with the actual arcade box with the yoke steering wheel.

D&D: Tower of Doom - Got quite far on one quarter.

Xenophobe - Nice mix of all your favorite sci-fi and a complex interface to master. Played that one for hours.

Golden Axe - only arcade I could beat with one quarter.

Bank Panic - You play a sheriff in a bank who shoots bad guys that pop up along a long row of doors. Not fancy but damn fun.

Kyros - you play this muscle-bound fighter who punches and kicks his way through a haunted house to rescue children. Incredibly strange game but fun.

Quartet - favorite to play with friends.

Aliens - side-scroller based on the movie. It's actually not that great a game, but I was a huge Aliens fan.

Sarge - Top down game you where you switched between a helicopter and tank.

Gauntlet - who didn't like this? I don't really know if this is a super favorite because I never really felt like I mastered it.
