    My first thought was Gauntlet then i saw your list for voting and i went with Luck and Wild.

    Love this game and i think it gets over looked by people which is a shame as it is a blast to play with two players.

    And i think it would be nice to see some games off the "beaten path" so to speak.

    A lot of good choices. The biggest thing I like in multiplayer arcade games is a mix of competition and cooperation, with more than 2 players being a plus as well. I think I'd have to pick Warlords. I liked Gauntlet and the brawlers (Golden Axe, TMNT, etc) a lot in the day, but the gameplay hasn't held up well imho. Warlords is still a blast. Mario Brothers would be high on my list as well.

    I've never even heard of "Lucky & Wild" so I'm anxiously awaiting the description.

    I chose Golden Axe, but I still have strong support for Ice Cold Beer and Zeekes peak.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles....4 player Simultaneous just ROCKED.

    X-Men and Simpsons arcade games were also great in this area, but I really loved TMNT the best. The followup, Turtles in Time, also kicked ass as well.

    Utterly predictable, but had to go with Gauntlet.

    Haven't played a bunch of those games, mind.

    I vote TMNT. Thought the NES port suffers from serious sprite flashing.
    Although at least one of the NES emulators has a feature to fix these
    type of problems. Although the NES port is easily the best TMNT game
    on NES, the flashing problem is the worst of its kind I have ever seen
    on the NES.

    Anyway, I haven't even played or heard of a few of those arcade games.

    Default Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

    Another vote here for Teenage Mutant Turtles.

    One of the few arcade Games I ever completed.

    Me and a friend Ian went to sunny Alton Towers,the UK's equivilent of Disney world, minus atmosphere, the great rides, the hot weather oh and the customer service, oh and minus the cleanliness.. okay so imagine Disney on meth with rain.

    Anyway pissed off at queueingfrom half a day to get on what ever ride we had we headed straight for the arcade machines and pumped enough 10 pences into it to finish it between us. By the time we finished there was a crowd around us we felt like Gods. Gods that had run out of money but still Gods no the less.

    Still gets my vote

    This was one of the tamest and least controversial top 10s I've heard - I didn't disagree with kicking out the two games you did, and the order of everything seemed reasonable.

    I, too played Warlords on the 2600 first, and it was a favorite. I remember seeing the coin-op in my favorite local arcade for the first time and was kind of blown away. The ball was actually a fireball! There was a dragon! The castles looked like castles. It was like a whole new game... in an odd way almost like a sequel to the 2600 version.
