I agree, not the greatest arcade games, but the ones I played most

All solid choices, and your number 1 is also my number 1....played it to death in the arcades, played it to death on the Speccy, still play it a lot on MAME. Dragon Buster is probably the game I've played most on the Namco Museum Battle Collection for PSP, and whilst I never played Bagman in an arcade, I used to hammer Gilligan's Gold on the Speccy which I later discovered was a near perfect unofficial Bagman port.

My personal fave Arcade Top Ten looks a little like this:

1. Peter Packrat
2. Pang!
3. Donkey Kong
4. Bezerk
5. Jungle King
6. Wonder Boy
7. Star Wars
8. Double Dragon
9. Snap Jack
10. Baraduke

My all time favourite? Out Run?

A list of favourites? I think I'll leave out typing one up, I'll only crash the server.
