Top 100 2600 games of all time

Recommended Posts

:-o NO WAY!

 

Just short of a decade later, we've got the first ever vote for Swordquest: Earthworld! 270 other games earned a vote before this one, and to be honest I thought another 200 or so would get their first vote before this one did.

 

zmbdog, you are a player of rare taste indeed ;)

 

I was hoping he would answer with something like:

 

"Fnck River Raid - why play game #7 of my top ten when I could play game #6!"

 

@zmbdong - I like everything else on your list as a top ten, but COME ON MAN. If you have sentimental memories of Swordquest then put it somewhere in your brain as #11 and push another game up the list.

Sentiment was putting Custer's Revenge at #10 just cuz I remember my parents laughing the first time they saw it. I ditched it when I remembered Cosmic Ark.

Custer's Revenge is a really terrible game! Though everyone gets nostalgic about the first time they encountered electronic smut :-o

 

For more satisfying adult gaming, I was surprised to find that Burning Desire (aka Jungle Fever) is actually pretty good. It's like finding a playable Mythicon game.

Sorry I have been away for awhile. I haven't been able to log in to this forum in months (on any browser). I finally had to take my computer into Geek Squad to remove a virus and I can finally log in again. I'll try to update this when I get a chance.

I don't know if the first post is the most "updated" one, but its current form almost lines up perfectly with my top 10:

 

 

Original Carts:
1. Pitfall II (425 points, 57 votes, 16 first place votes)
2. Pitfall! (402 points, 62 votes, 8 first place votes)
3. Adventure (393 points, 57 votes, 16 first place votes)
4. Kaboom! (334 points, 51 votes, 12 first place votes)
5. River Raid (297 points, 49 votes, 6 first place votes)
6. H.E.R.O. (291 points, 48 votes, 6 first place votes)
7. Warlords (255 points, 38 votes, 8 first place votes)
8. Space Invaders (250 points, 44 votes, 6 first place votes)
9. Yar's Revenge (234 points, 40 votes, 3 first place votes)
10. Asteroids (216 points, 39 votes, 5 first place votes)

 

My ordering would be a bit changed, and I'd sub Missile Command for Adventure - I've just never understood the appeal of Adventure, then or now. Although I do appreciate the technical leap it was, especially after reading Racing the Beam. Hm, I'd probably also pick something in place of Pitfall II, just for variety. It's a technical masterpiece but I've always preferred playing the original. Maybe Combat as #10 - it was just such a fun game, even if simplistic and primitive as hell. I might even put Astroblast in my top 10 - that game is just insane fun.

I had very few carts, and almost all early ones, but why not...

 

1) Kaboom!

2) Omega Race (why is the arcade classic Omega Race not getting votes?)

3) Chopper Command

4) Missile Command

5) Super Breakout

6) Skiing

7) Lock N Chase

8) Demon Attack (I never had phoenix)

9) Night Driver (played a lot in the very early days, and seldom later on)

10) Riddle of the Sphinx (no strong #10 choice - I played RotS a LOT for a short period)

 

Although Adventure and its Magic Dot holds a special place in my memories, I just can't put it on the list based on that alone.
