How Many Classic Arcade Games Can You Name? (It’s the arcade version of Where’s Waldo?)


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch is a big fan of the classic video games that populated arcades back in the 80’s and early 90’s.

Not like today’s gaming arenas, filled with craptastic ticket-dispensing machines that teach kids different variations of gambling in order to “earn” enough tickets to buy a lousy stuffed animal that would have cost half as much if purchased directly from the local Toys R Us.

No, we’re talking the classic quarter-munching games like Galaga, Ms Pac Man, Defender, i-Robot, Dig Dug, Robotron, and others from the best game years.

Laugh all you want, Nintendo-boy.  We liked our games simple, with a single joystick and maybe two buttons.  Cheesy audio and bad graphics were state-of-the-art at the time… and you still felt as if you got your quarter’s worth every time you played.
