Everyone knows what "classic arcade" means. And everyone should know what the most popular and loved classic arcade games are (or, should I say "were"?).
Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and Space Invaders are perhaps the most iconic classics in the early history of video gaming. If you're a true retro-gamer you should also be familiar with Dig Dug, QBert, Break Out, Asteroids, Qix, BurgerTime, Centipede, Defender, Frogger, Galaga and many many many more.

While all the original coin-op versions are playable using MAME, you may want to try the countless PC conversions or the many clones existing for a number of platforms, from C-64 to smartphones.

Personally, I never quite managed to be a good arcade game player. I repeatedly lost. Badly. But I have to admit that I'm particularly fond of two classics: Defender and Qix. What about you? Are you old enough to remember the original at the arcades?
