Just curious..

I did a long YouTube series of top 20 arcade video games of each year from 1980 up to 1997, and the 70s in general (some entries are incomplete due to not being playable in MAME yet) and I was just curious as to what YOU folks felt were the best 20 games of each year.  If you can make them sort of in order (or at least the top pick or top 5 or so) maybe list them that way.  Or jumble them together in no particular order, doesn't really matter.  I was just curious as to which ones we liked best.

 

For me:

70s in general (I just generalized since the arcade video game scene hadn't caught on until later in the 70s): 1. Space Invaders 2. Asteroids 3. Galaxian 4. Pong 5. Breakout 6. Sprint 2 7. Head-On 8. Tank 9. Depthcharge 10. Night Driver 11. Atari Basketball 12. Atari Football 13. Super Bug 14. Sea Wolf 15. Gun Fight 16. Blockade 17. Space Wars 18. Computer Space 19. Lunar Lander 20. Monaco GP

1980:

1. Pac-Man 2. Centipede 3. Missile Command 4. Tempest 5. Rally-X 6. Berzerk 7. Targ 8. Moon Cresta 9. Asteroids Deluxe 10. Battlezone 11. Phoenix 12. Defender 13. Wizard Of Wor 14. Space Panic 15. Carnival 16. Star Castle 17. Warlords 18. Crazy Climber 19. Space Zap 20. Spectar (I will someday re-upload and switch Moon Cresta or Targ with Crazy Climber)

1981: 

1. Donkey Kong 2. Ms. Pac-Man 3. Galaga 4.Frogger 5. Scramble/Super Cobra 6. Qix 7. Astro Blaster 8. Gorf 9. Venture 10. Mouse Trap 11. Bosconian 12. Amidar 13. Satan's Hollow 14. Kick 15. Lock 'N Chase 16. Make Trax 17. Vanguard 18. Lady Bug 19. Turbo 20. Pleiades

1982:

1. Dig Dug 2. Mr. Do 3. Joust 4. Robotron 2084 5. Burgertime 6. Q*Bert 7. Zaxxon 8. Pengo 9. Pole Position 10. Tron 11. Xevious 12. Moon Patrol 13. Sinistar 14. Time Pilot 15. Bagman 16. Donkey Kong Jr. 17. Jungle King/Hunt 18. Popeye 19. Pooyan 20. Kangaroo

1983:

1. Dragon's Lair 2. Mario Bros. 3. Track & Field 4. Crystal Castles 5. Star Wars 6. Spy Hunter 7. Crossbow 8. Elevator Action 9. Gyruss 10. Discs Of Tron 11. Mr. Do's Castle 12. Food Fight 13. Mappy 14. Cloak & Dagger 15. Major Havoc 16. Domino Man 17. Congo Bongo 18. Arabian 19. Donkey Kong 3 20. Journey

1984:

1. Kung Fu Master 2. Karate Champ 3. 1942 4. Punch Out 5. Marble Madness 6. Paperboy 7. Hyper Sports 8. Gaplus 9. Pac-Land 10. Circus Charlie 11. Stocker 12. Do! Run Run 13. Space Ace 14. Cheyenne 15. 10-Yard Fight 16. Time Pilot 84 17. Return Of The Jedi 18. Bomb Jack 19. Snake Pit 20. VS Excitebike

1985:

1. Ghosts 'N Goblins 2. Gradius 3. Gauntlet 4. Yie-Ar Kung Fu 5. Space Harrier 6. Commando 7. Rush 'N Attack 8. Kicker 9. Mag/Max 10. Indiana Jones & The Temple Of Doom 11. Hang On 12. Ring King 13. Pitfall II 14. Mat Mania 15. Sega Ninja 16. Gun Smoke 17. Choplifter 18. Sky Kid 19. VS Hogan's Alley 20. Shoot Out

That's it for now; I will let you folks compare your own or tell me what I got right or should have included.  The dates for some of the games may not all be exact but the ones that aren't were close enough to the date or generally seen in US arcades that date.

Fire away with your picks!!
