I don't think I can give this a number but there was a Japanese fighting game I played many years ago in the early 1990s. It was similar to Double Dragon and when your last life was lost, someone would shout at you in Japanese. I met someone a while later who was from there and I asked the meaning of the phrase. He blushed red enough to resemble a tomato and said that it was an incredibly rude thing to say.  Lookingup

I'm not sure what the fighting game is.. I know they say "IPPON!" in Samurai Shodown but that just means "point".  I might have to do a bit more research..
In the meantime:
98. PENGO (1982, Sega)
Great maze game where a penguin pushes blocks of ice at "Sno-bees" trying to sting him.

chaos- That was a cool pinball game.

96. Crystal Castles



anyone who plays roller games with their foot is a baddy!


I actually know this guy...this is Mark Alpiger, the former Crystal Castles champion who used to play with his foot. I personally witnessed this at Richie Knucklez arcade in New Jersey at the 2010 "Tron Off" where Donald Hayes defended his Tron title against David Cruz and if I remember right, Brian Wagner.   Alpiger is also in the documentaries King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters and Chasing Ghosts.

And I'll top it off:
100. HEAD-ON, 1979 Gremlin/SEGA
Classic and much-copied "eat the dots" game (before Pac-Man!) with cars.  Try not to let the other car ram you as you attempt to clear the screen.


If you guys like, submit an "honorable mentions" 100 list!

The first honorable mention:
1. MOUSE TRAP (1981, Exidy)
Great maze game where you can change from a mouse (being attacked by cats) into a dog (who can turn the tables on the cats)!  Avoid the hawk, which can kill either form.

Why in the world does he play with his foot?

He used to do that to show off.  He even defended his Crystal Castles record with his foot one time! The guy is just that odd, but that talented too.

Mark is a little tiny guy with a big attitude, and he takes a bit of getting used to.
He's somewhat independent wealthy as a consultant and is quite able to cut his own rules.
He has his own website at www.classicarcadegaming.com and he is the host of the annual Classic Arcade Gaming Tournament. He is also, like myself, good friends with Twin Galaxies founder\patron saint of gamers, Walter Day, and arcade legend Richie Knucklez.

Above all, Mark is very odd, but once you get to know him and his ways, you can be yourself around him and actually find him to be a pretty good guy.

Yeah; you warp I think from level 1 to 2 if you go behind the castle in the northern corner (where you can't see yourself) and jump.
After playing once, on your next credit a door will be opened in the first castle.  Go in and jump to go to level 3.
On level 3 grab the hat and go to the corner of the maze where you can't see yourself.  Press jump to go to level 5.
There's one other, I think to go from 5 to 7 that may also involve grabbing a hat and going to a hidden corner and jumping.
Also, notice that when you get the high score your initials will appear on the first level building.
And, if you jump like 100 times in the bottom corner of level 1 (you'll have to get stung by the bees twice) the programmer's initials FXL (Franz X. Lanzinger) will appear.

3. Moon Cresta (1980, Nichibutsu/Gremlin/SEGA)
Multi-stage shooter where you can add parts to your ship, increasing its firepower dramatically!  The opening tune is VERY recognizable for many arcade vets.

    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.

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