    I wonder where i'd be financially if I invested instead of spent the GAZILLION quarters I went through at arcades like these growing up? Still.. totally worth it!

    Also Missing: SiniStar, Donkey Kong3, Star Trek the Video Game "Welcome aboard captain" when you started it, missile Command, Bump and jump, Tempest, Zaxxon, etc etc etc
