The Donkey Kong game only has the first level... sorry princess, I got bored before I could save you. Enjoy the hot monkey sex.

This rocks. I feel like I'm nine years old at the arcade again. : )

If you like that, you'll love MAME. ROMS for pretty much every arcade game ever are available on your friendly neighbourhood peer-to-peer networks.

It's hard as hell playing Robotron with a keyboard, though.

That one passed me by...

Thanks for the link.

Never going to get any work done now.

god I love Asteroids. Aged between 14 and 16, there was a cafe close to school that was the recipient of all of my dinner money. My highest score at Asteroids was 89,960 (so close to an extra life!!!). It didn't get me laid any quicker, though.

HEHEHE I relive these days in my basement. I have a Robotron, Tempest and Turbo down there. Fire them up and it is like a mini arcade, except I don't need quarters.
I am going to Funspot up in NH next weekend to do the real deal though. If you live in New England and get the jones to play classic arcade games in a true arcade, then Funspot up at Weirs Beach in Laconia is the place to go.
They have an annual Arcade game championship too.

Bah. No Tail Gunner.

Coolest. Game. Ever. (in 1980/81, anyway)

Not me, boy....this was one of several "vector" games that were around in the very early 80s, and I blew a lot of quarters in the game room at college playing this. There was also a Star Trek game one played by sitting in a "Captain's Chair", looking at a screen, and controlling from the arms of the chair.

Funspot up at Weirs Beach in Laconia is the place to go.

Ooh, thanks for the tip.

Ufez Jones, you can expect a lawsuit from my employer since no one that sits in my corner has gotten any work done in the 2 hours since I clicked this darn link.

The Simon championships have begun.

I think the version of DuckHunt that I have is better.
