Loved pinball back in the day.

When they started going away, I got to where I could play Ms. Pacman about 2 hours on one quarter! (talk about needing to get a life!)

Many years ago I used to get off work at 1:00am all hopped up on "something" and head to the arcade room at a local all night diner. RoboCop, Crossbow and Spy Hunter where my favs.

Tempest, Joust, Gorgar, Asteroids, Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, Star Castle,................. Man the list is huge.

I could waste an entire day, and most of my money in an arcade, and not even care.

I built my own emulator for the house- the pics are up somewhere. I prefer Joust 2 myself- it lets you change your steed in midgame from the ostrich to a Pegasus (and I hate the damn peridactyl)

And money stealer! At the arcade in the late '70s-early '80s there were tons of Atari machines, all addictive and the quarters would flow like water.


Gravitar

Also;
Space Invaders
Battlezone
Galaxian
Centipede
Millipede
And a million more...
