    Pengu?

    I wasted a ton of money on all of them. I remember the first machine I played was a nickel and when double dragon hit the scene it was the first 50 cent game around.

    We played this for hours and hours, how long would todays kids be able to play?
    I'm guessing less than a minute before they throw down the controller and walk...

    Racing Driving evolved into Hard Driving, in my opinion the best arcade driving game ever. I won a Hard Driving tournament in 1991. Good times.

    How old does it have to be to be considered vintage now? I loved NLF blitz 2000. Played it at the theater when we went. Asteroids, Frogger was fun though. I always hated PacMan (because I sucked)

    I loved all of these. It was great growing up in the 70 and 80's!

    Battlezone was my favorite and I could get a lot of mileage out of one quarter.
