Kind of self-explanatory really, just post 100 of the greatest arcade games in your opinion, in no particular order, one poster at a time (unless there's like a 12-hour gap from the last post or something).
1. DIG DUG (1982, Namco/Atari)
My all time favorite.  Gotta get my Dig Dug cabinet in my living room fixed.

Next?

Actually, Wizard Of Wor came out before Gorf.  So did Berzerk for that matter.
7. GALAGA (1981, Namco/Midway)
Still a great game, with or without the "no-fire" trick!

8. AMIDAR

You are a crazy looking seahorse (or something like that  Question) who paints and fills in blocks. Doesn't sound too exciting, but I enjoyed it.  TeddyR

11)  Defender.  The first game I really got into when I started going to video arcades back in '81 or '82.

12. WONDER BOY IN MONSTERLAND

One of my favourites.

You are a young knight (very young, judging by the fact that you run around in a diaper) and you kill snakes and a few indeterminate things. You also get help from cheery bartenders and shop owners who greet you either with a cheery "What?" or "Welcome. What you want?"  TeddyR TeddyR

13: GOLDENAXE

Not the Nollywood film of the same name, btw  Buggedout

You battle the dreaded Death Adder and then, when the game is won, it explodes and all the characters chase the players down the street.  Buggedout TeddyR TeddyR

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
