Arcade1Up

What arcade game did you drop a ton of coins into when arcades were a thing? A startup has obtained licenses from some of the big game makers and is making 2/3 size arcade machines for the home At somewhat affordable prices. I almost pulled the trigger on the Star Wars cabinet that I found for $125 off retail on sale but probably will hold out for the Ms PAC Man/Dig Dug/RallyX cabinet coming in October.

Re: Arcade1Up

The ones I remember:

Asteroids
Defender
Virtua Racing (much later)
Centipede
Dig-Dug

There was an Asteroids sequel that I didn't play much, but I do remember this little guy, who apparently "rules all galaxies":

On PC I played a lot of Starflight, Populus, Microsoft Flight Simulator, and the original Madden Football (which actually was pretty disappointing compared to shit like Front Page Sports football).

Re: Arcade1Up

I only remember that low quality yet still awesome triangle asteroids first generation game. I think that Zaxxon game was probably the next level high tech spaceship arcade game back in the early 80’s
