    Wow, there are some shoe-in big titles missing, but I guess that's why I love the RGR Top 10s. Anyways, I had to pick Treasure of Tarmin.

    I'm picking Beamrider out of principle. I just "found" that game recently just going through random Atari 2600 roms and fell in love with it. Astro Smash is a close second for me considering Asteroids on the 2600 is one of my favorite games for that system.

    Unfortunately, the Intellivison is a system that I don't have a lot of experience with, and like someone said in another thread, to play a lot of these older games from systems of that era you really need to have memories of them. My first experience with an Intellivision game was off of Intellivision Lives! for the PS2 not more than 8 months ago. :P

    And those shoe-in titles are what? This was a very hard list to put together and we do mention many runner-ups that I am sure will be in your list

    Night Stalker, Dracula, D&D Cloudy Mountain, BurgerTime, Masters of the Universe, and Shark! Shark! could each be a #1 pick. Beauty and the Beast was great, but Imagic's Inty lineup was really good across the board - I'd put Demon Attack, Atlantis and Microsurgeon at least as honorable mentions. All their major sports titles deserve some recognition as well - Baseball and NFL Football sold consoles and were simply amazing at the time. Auto Racing was/is a fantastic game. For an oddball pick, Intellivision Pac Man is a pretty good port, too.
    This was a very hard list to put together
    Definitely - It'd be hard for me to narrow down to 10 myself, let alone 4! I'm sure it will be a fun segment.

    Wow, this is a tough one with so many great titles to choose from. I picked AD&D, but Utopia and Beauty and the Beast were fighting for my vote. I'm suprised not to see Burgertime or any of the Tron games. Should make for a good debate.

    I never had an Intellivision, just played a few on emulator. I really enjoyed Thin Ice.

    Is it just me or is Night Stalker WAY too fast on the Intellivision 10 in 1 blue controller (I guess it's the first edition?) ... and before someone says it, yes, I am well aware that these are merely ports of the games to the NES.

    But I played Night Stalker a few times on Intellivision Lives! for the PS2 and I don't remember it being this fast. lol

    *edit* Oh damn ... just downloaded Bliss since my PS2 is on the fritz ... and damn are those ports to the TV game HORRIBLE. Good Lord ... Shark! Shark! is brain dead easy on the TV game ... Astro Smash might as well be a completely different game. Man that's just pathetic.

    Yeah those things are more for convenience and novelty rather than accuracy.
