Coin-ops of the 80’s – Top 20

Here’s a list of my favorite coin-op arcades of the late 70’s to the early 90’s when I actually stopped visiting arcades! The year number in the brackets is the official release date of the machine, not the year I’ve seen/played it). The list is loosely based on memory and I’ll put some pictures when I find them and maybe add a few more games if I remember them:

1. Can’t remember the title -will find it- it was a car game (70’s)
2. Space Invaders (1979)(of course!)

There are few more games I really like, but I have found these on very few arcade halls and played them even less, so I cannot really put them to the all time favorite list.
