My favourite arcade games were the ones I could play for free - Choplifter, Outrun, Road Blasters & Pac Man being the most memorable, though we did also have the multi-game NES and Mega Drive based cabs.  After getting the cabinet key and just repeatedly flicking the microswitch for credits paying seemed a bit of a waste :-P

Star Force (AKA Mega Force) - simple gameplay and only 1 powerup but something about the design of attack waves that made it really tricky!

Salamander - I remember when this came out there consistently used to be about a dozen people crowded round it watching, gets stupidly tough though at one point :-\

Hoya!

Salamander? You bet! It is damn hard...

I have to add Shinobi, love the Amiga version, too.

Does anyone remember Empire City 1931?
On CPC, Amiga and St, there was an unofficial conversion called Prohibition. Liked this game.

AND... Does anyone remember this DEAD cool Tecmo game called Psychic 5???? I LOVED it! Got it on MAME but it is a bit too slow...

That is all for now..

Ah Metal Slug series - classic!
But they are 90s games are they not?


Well... Metal Slug 4 and 5 are post 2000. ;)

Hmm...  In the '80's?

Well, I think Pac-Man and Ms Pac-Man. ;)

I always enjoyed Donkey Kong 3, Gyruss, Discs of Tron, Afterburner (full cab).  

Umm... There was a Sega game which was a sort of "space" version of Hang-on?  I forgot what it was called!

Let's see... There was Rygar, Super Sprint, Bubble Bobble, Psycho Fox (later found on Sega Master System *yay!*), Golden Axe (remember hearing the yells when it was first released!), Space Harrier, STUN Runner, Quartet, Xenophobe, Ninja Warriors (that widescreen TAITO game), Elevator Action, Bump and Jump, Centipede, Crystal Castles, Star Wars (original Arcade).

I could go on and on. :)

Centipede for sure! When my wife and I were courting I found that if we came to a place with Centipede, sweety-pie would jack in and that was it for her for the evening. Always trying to bump #1 off the high score board. She did pretty good, too. I have Evil Garden for the Amiga here just so's she can recall the happy new-in-love days....sigh. I usually played Ms.Pacman and badly, too. I'm much better at games you can think about for a few minutes. I tend to over-react under pressure, which was a good thing when I was armored up for real and pounding on some guys head with my mace! I liked that much more than arcade games.....

I grew up a bit late for the Pac-Man/Centipede class games.  My favorite "old" titles are Lady Bug and ChaseHQ.

Of course, nothing beats the original version of Hard Drivin'.  I can't believe what crap the Amiga/PC conversions were!  It took the split-track design of Outrun and gave you the choice between a race track and a stunt course.  How can you beat that?  :-)

Were there any other "realistic" racing games in the arcades?  Modern "lightweight" racers like Daytona USA 2 give me hives.
