So you walk into an arcade...

This hypothetical arcade has every game you ever remember playing in the arcade including all of the ones you wished you could've but didn't.

What's the first game you throw your money into and why?

I think I might go with 6-player X-men, assuming I had 5 friends there to play it with. I never got to play it fully loaded.

We had this at an indoor soccer complex and I spent so many hours/quarters playing this game.

Both of those are great. I remember the first time I walked into Space Port in the mall and saw a crowd around TMNT.

"It looks *JUST* like the cartoon!" I exclaimed.


Spoiler: No it doesn't.

I have no idea, probably either Pac-Man, 1942, or Mortal Kombat 3.

Those were the games at the local pizza place back when I was like 4-5 years old.

re: So you walk into an arcade...
My top 5:

1. Wrestlefest - A dollar could get you a ton of play time. Plus, I loved wrestling back then.

2. X-Men - I remember being at a Chuck E Cheese type place for a friend's birthday and beating it. Was truly a glorious day.

3. Golden Tee - Pick a year/version. Fun game, except when the trackball is jacked up. Fk you Dave & Busters.

4. Off Road - There was this roller skating place that was a big hangout when I was younger that had this game. Spent more time playing it then actually skating.

5. Bust A Move - I don't know why, but I find this game really addicting.

Now THAT'S what I'm talking about. I totally forgot about that game.

Anyone ever play "Lucky and Wild"? It was a driving game AND a gun game. Player 1 drove the car and could shoot while player 2 sat shotgun and only had to worry about gunning bad guys down.
