    Great to see Star Castle getting some love! My personal favorite.

    A sinful omission is Asteroids which has to rank as one of the top if not THE top vector games of all time.

    I'm so voting Atari Star Wars!

    It was one of the very first video games I ever played after all :P

    Great top 10! Gotta think about this one for a bit...
    If you can't do it with 8 bits, you don't need to do it.

    I think Star Wars has to get it. It was a true 'holy shit' game of the first order. The others are all great games, but Star Wars was still really popular in arcades 10 years after it was first released. It was the first game I remember to do properly fast 3D. There's one in Fisherman's Wharf here in SF and it's still a total buzz to play. Controls, sound, speed, it has it all.

    Right on, that is about how I summed it up, a holy shit game with great expectations.

    I voted StarWars....close call between that and BattleZone.

    A forgotten gem is:

    Star Wars! It's great in the arcade!

    When you think you are a tough avenger, switch the difficulty to A, and then try Ultimate Yars!
