    OK - here's anew one (maybe).

    Those of us old enought o remember the heyday of cion-op arcades - what were your favorite video games?

    Here's a few of mine to start -

    Defender
    Tempest
    Burgertime
    Galaga
    ....just to start the ball rolling
    (I've got lots more. )

    *gulp* - Down In Flames

    "...like falling down the stairs and landing on your feet." - Edward Van Halen describing his solos.

    "And I swore to myself, I swore to myself that some day, some day...I was going to smoke joints that big." - DLR, Crazy From The Heat

    Defender was killer!

    Wish I had all those quarters back I spent on
    ASTEROIDS. Endless hours spent at the 7-11 drinking slurpies and playing vids.

    Wasn't there a game called Time Pilot? There was a version of it on Coleco-vision afterwards. If I'm right, that was a cool game that I liked.

    Wanna see what a lot of your favorite old games looked like?

    Click on this link: http://www.atarihq.com ,
    choose "Coin-ops", and then "Screen shots".

    Have fun - I spent about two hours there the first time I visited.

    For some reason I can't remember the name of it, but there's an emulator out there that let's you play your favorite old coin-ops off of the original ROMs.
