The 1970s was the golden age of the arcade industry and included such classics like Pong, Galaxian, Breakout and many more. Why not tell me your favourite arcade games of the 1970s in the comments section below and please like and subscribe as there will be plenty more Top 10 gaming countdowns on the way.


  1. Have most of these (including Lunar Lander and Sea Wolf!) on my AtLegends Arcade Ultimate machine! Lunar Lander had a cool thrust level on the original arcade machine. Oh with asteroids you're meant to leave a couple of asteroids flying around but not clear them – just keep shooting the spaceships/UFOs and get lots of points.

  2. The true classics here, all "easy to play, but hard to master".

  3. Great vid pal and some nice nostalgia. Obviously Space Invaders set the benchmark for all arcade games to come, but still my favourite even to this day is Galaxian.. 😁

  4. Space invaders at first place ? Like, of course.

  5. Reclusive Hermit With A Long, Bushy White Beard says:

    My favorite was Space Invaders & then Galaxians. I never liked Asteroids.

  6. #5 : "It attracted a great deal of controversy".
    Me : Sees it for the first time… " YA THINK?!???!? " LOL

  7. Lunar landing was a fave for me. That galaxan style program found on 3 of the top 10 was lame for me after a while.

  8. I'm glad that someone finally gave Radar Scope some love. I loved that game.

  9. I remember playing lunar lander at science museum in San Francisco. Loved the sub game at locals Fiesta mart. Also had many versions of the home pong and breakout/super breakout.

    Now I have Moon Alien cocktail. Love playing it.

  10. I lived in a rural area and arcade games did not get there till around 79 or 80. It was the Table Tennis game. But the early 80s the bowling alley got Donkey Kong and Pac-Man.

  11. The crazy thing about Space Invaders is how it is a deeper superior game than all the games it inspired. Galaga would set a new paradigm which emphasized memorization of enemy attack patterns. But the original Space Invaders had something the successors lacked – an excitement level that ramped up do to speeding up as the level progressed. You had to strategically plan how you were going to deal with that. The way the game made you think about the interaction of speedup and the width of the attacking formation … you just didn't get any of that from Galaxian onward.

  12. I liked all those games but I would have to have a top 15 to include starship1, Boot Hill ,star fire ,space wars and star hawk, and I was surprised that none of the driving games where there like lemans or fire truck or night driver just to name a few

  13. 1:30

    Let me see whether I can trade some folded movie posters for that game!

  14. I played all of these, except the Lunar Lander one, which I never saw….

  15. I have played them all. If you mastered the Lunar Lander, you could include it in your resume to join NASA.
