  1. Star castle , Pac-Man , defender , tempest , so many great games, I would love to have a custom arcade cabinet made , but I live in Canada , Nova Scotia , & can’t find a company in the area that makes a good product

  2. What was your criteria for ranking the games? Like, seriously, Donkey Kong so close to the bottom, Ms. Pac-Man nowhere to be seen, and the first Street Fighter of all things ranked as #1? The first Street Fighter game is generally agreed to be crap – it was Street Fighter 2 that revolutionized the fighting genre.

  3. Jailbreak? Fantasy? But no Missile Command or Tempest?

  4. It's astonishing to see how arcade / video game technology eveolved in just some 5 or 8 years…. during the 80s.

  5. Not a single Atari release? No tempest, Star Wars or Gauntlet?

    And that baseball game by Sega? How is that top 200?

  6. Well I stopped watching at 27. DK has to be top 5.

  7. Sinistar. Should be on the list. Also Wizard of Wor.

  8. Any best of list that doesn’t include dragons lair is a joke.

  9. 1:19 Who seen that Marboro advertisement in Pole Position marketing cigarettes to kids? 😳

  17. Roadblasters?! I didn’t even know that’s a real game, I thought it was made up for the movie Wreck-it Ralph.

  18. My favorite was Pac-Man, Space Invaders and Donkey Kong

    Xbox Playstation Nintendo switch Nowadays Pc

  20. Defender was my favorite, was glad to see it in your list.

  21. Space Invaders, Centipede, Mike Tyson Punch Out.

  22. No! Just plain no. If Pac-Man is #2, it's only because Ms. Pac-Man is #1. Donkey Kong is clearly #3. I spent much time in the arcades in the 1980s and half these games I've never heard of.

  23. 80s – the era of Japanese. Where are they now??

  24. How about asteroids, tempest, Dragon’s lair?
    Kangaroo?
