It's easy to come up with 10 games, but putting them in order is difficult so I would tend to agree with Manuel. People should just list their top 10 in no particular order. However, for now here are mine in order of preference as best as I can figure:

1 Pitfall II
2 Frogger
3 Mountain King
4 Cosmic Ark
5 Demon Attack
6 Escape from the Mindmaster
7 Adventure
8 Q*Bert
9 Quick Step
10 H.E.R.O.

I know people complain in these sorts of things all the time, but I'm wondering why Supercharger games have to be seperate? I think we should be looping all 2600 games together - as long as they're original (not hacks).

In order:

1 - Adventure
2 - River Raid
3 - Frostbite
4 - Barnstorming
5 - Stampede
6 - Kaboom
7 - Defender
8 - Enduro
9 - Asteroids
10- Space Invaders

(I'd put "Communist Mutants" in my top 10, so consider this my vote for it being the best Supercharger game (I haven't played many of the others so I'm not ranking them)).

It's tough picking just 10. Now I have to play my remaining 118 games just so they won't feel left out :).

1. Midnight Magic
2. River Raid
3. Berzerk
4. Space Invaders
5. Asteroids
6. Solaris
7. Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
8. Kaboom!
9. Super Breakout
10. Dragster

There, I made another list that may be better than my first without repeating a game. This is tough. There's still Gorf, Towering Inferno, Warlords...

Maybe I better think some more?

Mister VCS, you need to post your list with 10 games in order.
mojofltr, please, split hacks and normal games on two lists if you want to vote.
panamajoe, choose a game to be 5# on your list, as hacks can´t be voted on the same list (thrust)

Top 10 Supercharger
1- Dragonstomper (10 )
2- Frogger, the Official (8 )
3- Communist Mutants from Space (4 )
3- Survival Island (3 )
5- Party Mix (2 )
6- Suicide Mission (1 )


Keep those votes coming!
