Nintendo should be top five.  Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Junior, DK3, Mario Bros. Vs Super Mario Bros, Punchout, Super Punchout, and even Arm Wrestling is a great game imo. Namco has to make top five as well.  Pacman Ms. Pacman, Jr. Pacman, Galaxian, and Galaga.

Nintendo? Not even close. I like two of their arcade games, period. Namco is for sure on my short list, it's a ~#7 for me. Keep in mind this list is solely ranked on number of games that I like, not historical impact or anything like that. I'm also probably 10 years younger than the average user here, minimum.

wheres SNK !

SNK was my last cut.

Yeah, Namco really made some great/popular games. Pac Man, Rally-x, Navarone (lol), Pole Position, Dig Dug, Xevious, Galaxian, Galaga, Bosconian, etc

Anyone that could make a game as good as Galaxian prior to 1980 deserves a Nobel Prize.

3. SNK (Neo Geo MVS)
4. Atari (Centipede, Millipede, etc.)
5. Capcom (Street Fighter, Final Fight, and more)
