Video Games From Your Past

Talk about Nostalgia, Video Games take me way back. I thought I’d throw together a list of Video Games that I liked growing up. I’d also love to hear what you liked… Lets get this going.

1) ZAXXON

Zaxxon

May have liked this game cuz I was good at it, lol

ZAM! ZAM!!

2) DONKEY KONG

Donkey Kong - Arcade Game

Was never very good at this game, but I liked it. There was also Donkey Kong Jr., I was even worse at that, lol. I remember there was this song by The Steve Miller Band that reminded me of the Music in Donkey Kong whenever I’d hear it.

lol, I’ve never seen that video before. It’s at the end of the song… Or maybe it’s just me, lol

3) PAC-MAN

Pac-Man

Maybe you’ve heard of this one, lol But for some reason I was always better at Mrs. Pac-Man

Mrs. Pac-Man

For those of us that prefer eating dots with a bow on our head… I suppose… Hmm

4) DIG DUG

Dig Dug

Great game.

5) MISSILE COMMAND

Missile Command

Man that’s an old one… Hmm

6) SPY HUNTER

Spy Hunter

Used to play that one after school at a 7-11

7) DEFENDER

Defender

Man that’s an old one too, lol Keep in mind my mom worked at a Pizza Place when I was really young, during the summer my brother and I would go with her to work sometimes. She’d give us maybe $5 each we’d play for a whole!!! Half an hour, lol

8 ) TRON

Tron - The 80's One

Wow Look at those Graphics

I’ll end with one of my fave’s

9) CENTIPEDE

Centipede

    I was laughing badly when I read the photo caption, “wow, look at those graphics.” One holiday I was given a tiny table-top pacman. My dad and I both played it all day long till out thumbs were killing us. But, you know when your hanging out at the grandmas house for the holiday theres never anything to do there.

    The movie theatre had a Gauntlette video game. 2 people could play it together. I always picked the archer. But I wasn’t any good and always shot the other player by accident. But now that I have grown up to become an rpg addict… I find my only problem is having to share the loot in a 2 person game. haha

  2. lol, loved Gauntlet… I think I chose the Archer as well. My favorite part was “Warrior Needs Food Badly” whenever your Health was down. I remember those little hand held Pac-Man’s, pretty cool. I actually had a very very small Donkey Kong hand held. Probably the only time kids liked me at school, lol, when I brought that thing.

    Thanks for the Comment
