The golden age of arcade video games was the era when arcade video games entered pop culture and became a dominant cultural force. The exact time period is disputed, but key moments include the release of Space Invaders in 1978 and the vector-based Asteroids in 1979—moments made possible by the increase in power and decrease in cost of computing technology. This led to the rise of both video game arcades and the mention of video games in other media, such as songs, cartoons, and movies like 1982’s TRON. Other iconic games from this era include Pac-Man, Defender, Galaga, Donkey Kong, and Centipede etc… #1980sArcade #ArcadeClassic #OldSchoolGames #GoldenAgeOfArcade

  1. Thank you for assembling this and the reminder of how 50k in quarters when missing.

  2. I remember when marble madness appeared. It stood out as so different, super sharp graphics, surreal imagery, unusual music and addictive gameplay. Also one of the few games that you could actually finish.

  3. Got to Kangaroo and realised no HunchBack. Boo

  4. No Nemesis? No Double Dragon? Lots of excellent games not here.

  5. 11:39 kangaroo, the background music similar to other game, but i cannot remember, anyone find out that?

  6. ExciteBike, Zaxxon, Xevious, Gradius, Punch Out!, 1941!,……You're missing quite a few!!!
