Golden Age games that will get you gamer cred
« on: April 16, 2017, 06:00:59 AM »
I present a list of 89 arcade games from what I call the Golden Age (1978 to 1985).  A person can get a certain amount of gamer cred in our community by being good at one of these 89 games.  A person doesn't need a world record, but simply recognized as someone who is really good at said game in order to get gaming cred in our community.  Fortunately a good 99 percent of classic arcade gamers are at least really good at one of the 89 games I have presented.   :)

Scratch DK3 and anything you're good at. Then add Hyper Sports Road Blasters and anything I'm good at and the list is complete. End if thread.
