    Ok guys sorry for taking so long to get the poll up but time is short.
    Had to cull some games out that didnt meet the 85 cut off but not many.


    Hard choice! but for me its Dig Dug, It was my earliest memory of playing an Arcade machine and it was the first game I sought after when I started collecting.
    Moon Patrol is a close second. The game was just ahead of its time with amazing parallax scrolling and catchy tune

    No Bubble Bobble, so I picked Asteroids.

    Juno First was a close second to that.

    Had to choose Galaxian as it was my first memory playing a coin op video game. Was a cocktail cab in a fish n chip shop somewhere around Liverpool on the way to my grandmas place sometime in 1979.

    Surprised nobody nominated Rally X. Top little game which Namco figured would be more popular than Pacman

    Have to go with Xevious it was the first arcade game that really blew me out as far as graphics/sound/gameplay, but like pins, I'd play any game back then I loved em all.

    Kids today will NEVER have that buzz.

    if you only get to pick one!

    It has to be PACMAN! How many games had songs written about them, and cartoons,lunch boxes,quilts etc etc besides "space invaders 1978"

    But impossible to narrow the list down to just 1
