Favourite Classic Arcade Game?

Growing up in Weston-super-Mare I was lucky to have a lot af arcades filled with classic machines back in the 80's. Unfortunately, these days it's full of gambling/slot machines and very few actual games.

Looking back on those days, I remember spending lots of money on classic games such as Shinobi, Xenophobe, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter 2 etc...

granted, many don't stand the test of time, but in their day they provided some quality entertainment.

I think the game I put the most pennies into would have to be the Area 51 shootem up! That was a badass game!

Easily The New Zealand Story and Strider.

The amount of 10ps in summer holidays I shovelled into those cabs...

I was also mildly obssessed with Return of the Jedi. Go for help! I see them! Wait for me!

Gauntlet with three other players. Fantastic fun, unbeatable in it's day (in more ways than one I suppose with it's infinite levels).

Other favourite of mine were/still are Commanda, Galaga, and Final Fight.
