10. Dragon's Lair

    I always wanted to buy this game and did many times (but not the arcade machine) -- Amiga, IBM, CD-I, DVD. Someday I will have the real thing.
9. Track & Field
    I played this one a lot ,and actually prefer the button configuration over the rollerball control panel.
8. Space Duel
    Well I played the #$@! out of Asteroids and Asteroids Deluxe with my buddies, but when we found this gem in 1981 we knew we had our first awesome 2-player vector game with co-op ship attachment... WOW!
7. San Francisco Rush
    The titles says it all -- RUSH!!!!
6. Donkey Kong Jr.
    When Nintendo released Donkey Kong, I thought it was terrific. Then they released Jr. where the tables were turned as the player was now the ape. Everyone likes both good and bad guys.
5. Tron
    I finally was able to purchase one these original incredible looking cabs, I must say that ever since I got it, I can not stop playing!
4. Joust
    2 player knights fighting on the backs of ostiches. Enough said.
3. Galaga
    In my eyes still the best and smoothest vertical shooter.
2. Stargate
    If Stargate was never designed, then I would have to pick its predecessor (Defender.)
1. Star Wars
    The upright cab is beautiful but the cockpit version's immersiveness was overpowering. I will never forget the feelings I would get, {maybe it was just because I was kid.}
