44. BERZERK (1980)
This game has some strange trivia attached to it.
Quote
Berzerk was the first video game known to have been involved in the death of a player. In January 1981, 19-year-old Jeff Dailey died of a heart attack soon after posting a score of 16,660 on Berzerk. In October of the following year, Peter Burkowski made the Berzerk top-ten list twice in fifteen minutes, just a few seconds before also dying of a heart attack at the age of 18.

GORF!  The first game to verbally taunt the player!

"You will meet a Gorfian doom, Space Cadet!"

...as well as congratulate him.
"you have destroyed my flagship, but for now, you have been pro-mo-ted to Space Captain".   I put lost of quarters into this back in the day!

And let's not forget the other taunter, The Wizard of Wor:

"You bones will dry in the dungeons of Wor, ta ta ta ta!"

BTW: same company for both games (Bally Midway) and they used the same voice synthesis.

45. GALAGA (1981, Namco/MIDWAY)
Another classic.  Sequel to Galaxian.  Great "lose a life to possibly gain extra firepower" idea.  I have a t-shirt of this game!

    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.
