  1. POV: you looked up the video games playlists for nostolgia

  2. Battlezone was released in 1980. Just sayin.

  3. I vote for Defender ! Man that game was one of the best arcade platform games ever !!! I grew up on Space Invaders and Pong and Asteroids. Then I got a job and a Sega and played Sonic 'til HE was tired of running lol

  4. DUMB SLOB: Computer Space was not the first arcade game! First video game maybe. And certainly video games would have taken off even had Pong not been invented. Not sure what's worse, the nerd narrator or your misinformation lists?!

  5. If I remember right, we walked past PONG at the local bowling alley when I was a little kid.

  6. My favorite games of the past are defender and scramble but think they where 80s …..70s id go galaxians


  8. Modern game devs should note how many 70s games are still easily enjoyable today.

  9. Yeah they messed up the date for lunar lander it was not 1979 but a year earlier a resturant my family frequented before we moved in 1979 had the game in their lobby.
    I would replace computer space with Space Wars as it also influenced Astroids and other two player games.

  10. Pong was such an addicting game, I’m still trying beat that damn computer

  11. You have given a fair selection. I'd mention 'Boot Hill' and 'Depth Charge' . . . great games from the 70s also.

  12. I remember all of the Games .. In my free time I will post more info… FYI … The person doing the voice over sounds like he was not around to play most of the games on the List Real time!
