Pong, Pacman (and Ms Packman), Asteroids, Missle Command, and the driving games ate up a lot of time and quarters.

Had pong when it came out(telestar from sears). Moved up to the atari 2600, then intellivision. Here ill show my age... anyone remember the arcade game that was a motorcycle that would start at the top of the screen and go through the tubes on the sides of the screen, then jump the busses. This was the first arcade game I remember.

Thanks for raising my blood pressure.

My second job after leaving the service was selling PONG at a department store. I lasted a whole two days before moving on.

DIG DUG, Wizards of Wor, and Defender!


but my buddy has a couple pinball machines and just restored one with robot female called Pinbot. Very good play with some strong innuendo for certain feats of skill or luck. LOL

Back in the 80's I was on a Friday night bowling league. After we were done bowling we would hit the lounge at the bowling alley, drink and play Galaxian and Pole Position. Blew a ton of quarters on those games.

If you have an Ipad/Itouch/Iphone there is a Dragon's Lair game you can download for 3 bucks. It is an EXACT replica of the arcade game. If I only had the quarters that I poured into that game.
