Bubble Bobble is still my favorite arcade game of all time. Close second would be Street Fighter 2.

Wonder if someone can help me. I played a game in the 80's that I loved but can't remember the name of it. All I remember is that it had arrows being shot from left to right and I had to jump over them. I am pretty sure there were castles that I was climbing. For some reason, I think the word "Hunchback" is in the title but I could be completely wrong about that. I know it is not much to go on but if you know the name, I would be very happy. Thanks.

Why is Mappy not in the list? In my opinion, Mappy should've been #1 in this list. Also, seriously? Pacman as #1? Out of all the 1980's Arcade games, Pacman is the least I enjoy. I mean Pacman is not a bad game, but it's not that great either. It's waaayyy overrated. Mappy is waaayyy better than Dig Dug and Pacman combined.

@Dave S. Then you should definitely try it out one of these days. It's a really great game. What the game is about is you're a police mouse(Named Mappy), and you have to get all the stolen items from the cat burglers name the Meowky gang. You jump on trampolines to go to any platform you want to get the stolen items. The cats chase you like the ghosts from Pacman, and you can attack them back with slamming them with doors. Think of Mappy kind of like a platforming version of Pacman but with lot of fun trampolines and variety of ways to attack at enemies. That's Mappy for you :) It's a really great game that didn't get the recognition it deserves. It's a hit in Japan, but somehow didn't get the popularity in U.S and Europe. Mappy has been ported to numerous consoles and handhelds like the Wii, Xbox 360, DS, PSP, PS 2 by numerous of Namco Museum collections.

These games are pretty good, but Mappy by Namco is the best Arcade game ever.

I agree with and called some of those, outrun, turtles, r-type, bubble bobble, space harrier, pacman and a few others, but come on, the original Wonder Boy was far greater than some on the list and way better than wonder boy in monster world that was an honourable mention! Also Spy Hunter and Dragons Lair should have been in the top 25. I'd never even heard of some of those other games and I pretty much lived in the arcades in the 80's.

Don’t agree with this list, missing quite a few games -tapper, jungle hunt, spy hunter, asteroids etc..

Asteroids came out in 1977. So it's NOT a 1980's game

I always like that game Commando. That was a fun game. Super Off Road, very addicting game. One quarter could last a long time

Commando! Oh God, yes. I played that so much I was afraid for a while that it had permanently crippled my right index finger. I was an Air Force weather observer at the time and lived about an hour from the station so I’d leave early [didn’t ever want to be late in AF] then I’d chill out in the terminal until it was time to get to work. Then one day this Commando game was set up there. I started playing it just to kill time before work. I soon got so good at it, though, that I began to arrive even earlier just to play Commando and always had to leave it with a bunch of extra lives, rush to the station and get to work. Wasn’t long and a bunch of the on-base kids caught on to my routine and would hang around in the terminal like vultures to finish off my game as soon as I left. It always made my day to leave them as many free games as I possibly could - then to come back the next day and beat the living hell out of any score they may have managed to get onto the scoreboard and crush their tender egos. Ahhh, yes, it was a wonderful win/win relationship we had. Lol.
