Writer's Block: Old School

Which classic arcade game was always your favorite as a kid? When you come across an old Galaga, Donkey Kong, or Ms. Pac Man machine (whatever your favorites were), do you still like to toss a quarter at them to take one more shot at the high scores list?


duh galaga (pacman is a close second.) and yes, whenever i am around a galaga machine (i know every single one in sf, and most of the pacman machines) i take a run on the high score (and probs 90% of the time beat it). it's a little known fact that i mostly won't go to a bar unless there is a galaga machine. it has to be a seriously special reason to get me to break that rule. (also shouts to burgertime, my 3rd fav).
Yeah, I love the start up music! It suits him so perfectly I will always identify him by the ringtone.

I use to be that good with shooters. I could spend all day on the old T2 game that had the machine gun but I bet if I tried it now I would totally fail out much faster for the same reason. That and I don't remember the name now but the shooting game where you were a cop and had to shoot bank robbers and guys out on the street. I remember it had a blue and pink gun and I remember what it looked like but I don't recall the name.
