Star wars Arcade 

M.A.S.H.

Aliens

Raiders

E.T.

 

(Movie Themes )

 

MY Two Cents: Since this will be only my 2nd season playing, It would be nice to know the Home Brew Games well in advance so I can purchase from the store and have time to play.

Several Activision Games: Stampede, Dolphin, Commando, Laser Blast.

Several games from the Arcade: Venture, Mr. Do!, Tutankham, Vanguard, Berzerk (preferably variation 9).

Several games that have never been played in the HSC: Only been here a few seasons so I have no idea. 

2 Paddle Games: Steeplechase, Canyon Bomber.

2 Homebrew Games: Space Treat, Draconian.

Your Requests of any game you would love to play: Spacemaster X-7, Subterranea, No Escape (some of the lesser-known Imagic titles could definitely use more love), Journey Escape, maybe some kind of solo Space War thing for bonus points (similar to what we did with Combat a season or two ago).

I second "Circus Atari" for paddle games, because it's so much fun to play, I wouldn't even care about my score :-).

 

For Paddle weeks: also "G.I. Joe" (or "Action Force" in our regions).

Speaking on DRACONIAN (an Atari 2600 Homebrew by SpiceWare), check out the following blog by Cessnaace (Mark - MSH as HighScore.com User)

http://atariage.com/...i-2600-updated/

 

There's a special curiosity about the SCORE, which can display MORE THAN 6 DIGITS!!  (Maximum of 7 digits during gameplay and 8 digits on the title screen)

 

If we play Draconian for 2600 HSC (Homebrew Weeks), I will provide a special note about the score. And unless otherwise noted by the moderator, we will assume Factory Default Settings (Quadrant Alpha, Sector 01, Skill Normal and TV Type NTSC), and Difficulty Switches set to B/Novice position.
