bubble bobble and double dragon are 1 and 2. I lived in the arcades in the 80s and these 2 games had the most crowds around them.

Good list, but they're are so many great ones. Like Elevator Action and Joust and especially Missle Command. No Starwars either and Tron. Really you could make a List of 50 and interchange a bunch of them for the top 25.

Pac Man easy #1, it was the original big hit and ruled the early 80s.

Popularity is never a measure of quality Ms. Pacman had far better and more challenging gameplay Better gameplay always = better game

Wow. List invalid. Space invaders and Asteroids were arcade royalty of the 80s. Tempest was also a classic cabinet game. I’m not sure if this was a ranked list of personal favorites or an actual list of the top arcade games of the 80s.

Robotron 2084, Xevious, Qix, Scramble, Centipede, Q-Bert, Mr. Do, Burger Time, Missile Command, Tempest, Frogger, Space Ace, Punch-Out, Spy Hunter, Turbo, Space Duel, Crazy Climber, Stargate, Ms. Pac Man, Joust, Battlezone, Sinistar, Commando, Berzerk, Tapper, Tron, Star Wars, Donkey Kong Jr, Buck Rogers, Mappy, Super Cobra, Elevator Action, Popeye, Phoenix, Arcanoid, Moon Patrol, After Burner, Track & Field, Gorf, Jungle Hunt, Wizard of Wor, 720*, Gravitar, Rally X, Vanguard, Star Trek ... I lived in the arcades in the 80s. I started caddying golf bags at 12 years old for under-the-table cash so that I could play the games I loved. My parents didn't have money for that so I worked my butt off after school and played on 'double token' Saturdays to get the most for my cash.

About 1992'ish....I was 15..first trip from the Netherlands to London. Trocadero on Piccadilly Circus...was a massive arcade venue up to 3 levels full of arcade games. Actually played a virtual reality mech game there. About 2001'ish went back to London and already the amount and variety of arcade games was wearing thin....played some nice gauntlet legends there... Around 2013'ish went to Londom for a work/ study related trip. No more Trocadero with arcade games. Couldnt find any proper arcade venue at all...

Tetrs started out as a computer and console game. The first arcade version never came out until 1990 (in Japan only) It doesn't qualify as a 1980's arcade game when there was no arcade version until 1990...smh

I was Rubish at most of the games on here. Never got paper boy, paid over the odds 20p a go for dragons lair, to watch two cartoon clips then die. Liked altered beast, double dragon and constantly got bartered on street fighter, in the game and when you beat one of the older kids. Remember Chase HQ being so much better graphically. Good times

I'm from Latvia and back in 80' we were in USSR so most of these games we get to know in early 90'..
Alicia Antoniadis
I couldn't wait for this to be over. So many of them were so bad. What happened to Gunsmoke, and Black Dragon for ex? If you are like me, who would rather rember the good games, skip immediately to 18:45 where Final Fight and the honorable mentions are. Please skip nr 1, for Pac Man was just a massively boring disgrace, as was this video.
kdj29 20 日 前
great list! i was amazed ms.pacman and centipede werent on it or honorable mentions... frogger, joust, asteroids, tempest, space invaders... your list was top heavy on late 80's games. i guess a top 25 would have to be 1980-84, then another top 25 for 85-89.

Although I don't agree with your order, i loved seeing all of the old games i used to play in the arcades. Such great memories. But Defender, Donkey Kong, Dragon's Lair and Galaga should've been in the top 5!
