Galaga, it's a classic.
Some might say puns are my signature jokes.
I liked the time crisis games but when I used to actually duck while pressing the pedal, it reminded me of my virginity.
House of the dead, Time Crisis, Metal Slug and Marvel Vs Capcom where among my favourites. I can play them all in my room now but, I don't.

Well I've only ever played one arcade style game that required coins and even then I only played it once, when I was both bored and a little curious. It was something to do with Star Wars where the final battle ended in a confrontation with Darth Vader. Being the only arcade game I have ever played in my life (I was 14 maybe 15 at the time) I guess that would be my favorite. Incidently, that was also the first time I had ever touched an actual coin and the first time I used one to pay for something. In fact I had to get money from a cash machine so I could get some change.
Oh I remember now, oh how embarrassing it was! I had asked one of the staff where I needed to insert my card in order to play the game. At the time I had no idea how the machine worked. You know come to think of it that man did give me some very strange looks. I dare say if I wasn't wearing a suit and brandishing a platinum card at the time he would no doubt have thought I was joking . Still he told me that the machine needed... Yeah that was right it needed tokens not coins. Though you needed coins to get the tokens from the token machine. Ah the memories are flooding back now.
Damn it's down right funny and hard to believe that I got blocked by such simple barriers. Though I suppose there comes wisdom with age and that which once seemed impossable now looks possible and all that ect, ect, ect.
For those not from the UK, a 14 year old adolescent with a platinum credit card (also called unlimited) was not a common sight, in fact it was down right rare. Though much, much more common these days.

I haven't played it in a very very long time but Metal Slug hands down, probably the only coin operated game I have spend more then $10 on in one sitting. pretty basis side scroller shoot em up, but there was just something about that game that sucked me in, I even went as far as buying the PS1 version of the game.

It's good to be the King!
Metal Slug, Galaga, and Dig Dug were awesome. Haven't played them in so long though. Makes me want to to Wal-Mart and get one of those little plug-n-play things.
