Donkey Kong was a close second.

I wish I played it more back then.  I think I got tired of waiting all the time, it was very popular!

So Galaga is way out in front which is surprising for its limitations.  It's in my Top 5 but a game like Gyruss was way more value for money and so underrated.  Not even listed!

The sounds of Robotron still sound so epic!  I love what Williams achieved back then.

I went to a high school across the street from a mall. Had just enough time on lunch break to finish 'Wonderboy'.  

On this list 'Joust'. It was awesome once I learned a valuable trick in the game
