I remember going to the local arcade and running around like a maniac. I took my quarters and spent hours enjoying the flashing lights and incredibly loud noises. Here are some of the great games we loved to play:
Ms. Pac Man- released in 1981 by Bally/Midway/Namco. Pac-Man was my favorite, but this was a close second! I loved the maze type games. They kept me occupied for hours. I know my parents enjoyed that part… =D
Frogger- released in 1981 by Sega/Gremlin. LOVED THIS GAME!! Lots of quarters went into this game. I remember doing this in the streets with my friends. If you were an 80s kid, I bet you tried it at least once. I wouldn’t dare do it now. LOL
Researching these video games brought back so many fond memories. We didn’t have the fancy graphics and things like they have today, but we did have great imaginations and creativity. Sometimes the simple things in life are best. I wish the old arcades would come back. I see the leg warmers have… maybe there is hope…
What was your favorite game? Do you have a fun story to go with it?
