Xevious - All time favorite.
Food Fight
Smash TV
Track & Field
Phoenix
Sinistar
Moon Cresta
Crazy Climber
Tempest
Yie Ar Kung Fu
Karate Champ
Kung Fu Master
New York, New York
Space Invaders
Breakout (First video game that gave me free games if I hit a high score)

Super Mario Bros. (turned the score over 3 times and did the turtle trick for 99 extra Mario lives.)

Can't say how many times I hurt my hand/fingers on that old football game with the X's and O's. (Grid Iron?)

Dragon's Lair
Space Ace
There was a similar game based on Lupin. I can't remember the name.

Many, many more but those are the ones I played the most.

I've never heard of it before either. I just tried it, and it's pretty good for 1980. Fast paced shoot em up (at least compared to Galaxian), but the music is repetetive and there are no levels. The spaceships just keep coming wave after wave.

It was going to be, but it's just been removed from the compilation (along with Mortal Kombat and Steel Talons).

Space Invaders and this other game that was a western thing. You were in the middle of a corrale (sp?) with bandits all around you. You had to shoot all the bandits.

I liked it because it was a cross between Galaxian and Phoenix.

There are just too many that I used to pump quarters into.

Star Castle
Legend of Kaga
Defender
Congo Bongo
Crazy Kong
1942
Midway

*gasp* They took out the first MK - that so bums me out. Was it removed from the Xbox compilation as well?

I also enjoyed Baby PacMan - that combo between a video game and a pinball machine. Oh how i adore pinball even more than arcade games.
