I did something yesterday that I haven't done in a really, really long time. I found myself playing Ms. Pac Man. OMG...I had so much fun! Of course...since I haven't played this game in probably 9 years...I completely sucked...and that's not an exaggeration. But who cares right? I had fun and that's all that matters.

So my fellow AMD'ers...what's your favorite vintage video games?

The only rule is that it cannot be played on the new gaming systems. I will allow games from the first version of Nintendo...but nothing after that system. I know...I know...but if I allowed some of the newer games...they wouldn't be considered vintage video games now would they.

Me? I loved Ms. Pac Man, Centipede, Q-Bert and Pong. I kind of hated Donkey Kong...because I could never rescue the girl...grrrrr!

I like Donkey Kong but Pacman frustrated me to no end... I liked Frogger, River Raid and there was one other I can't remember the name of but you had to get your guy up these levels and he had to cross rivers with alligators, jump barrels coming at him and not get hit by low flying ducks.

My daughter still has those games and the Atari stuff. I thought about borrowing them but I think I just don't have the patience for them anymore. I use to get so mad I'd bite the joy sticks....they still have my teeth marks on them... ...I think I'd probably stomp them to pieces now....

I was a Nintendo freak and loved Mario Bros. That was until I developed "Nintendo Elbow"....I considered it a badge of honor.

Did you know:
the name "Nintendo" translated from Japanese to English means "Leave luck to Heaven".

Straddle ~ I agree with you 100%...Pac Man rocks.

Softie ~

OMG...my son used to play this game at a restaurant we would dine at...but I don't remember the name either.

I use to get so mad I'd bite the joy sticks....they still have my teeth marks on them...

This is too funny Softie! Okay...step away from the joy stick.

Luna ~ Nope...they have to be the older games. C'mon...you can do it...dig deep because I'm sure you've played at least one of the older games.

I did not know these DS. Thanks for the kewl trivia.

Sugar ~ I loved Astroids too! I never played the games Time Pilot or Beserk...but I bet they were a lot of fun.

Pink ~ Frogger and Tempest are great games Pink.

Oh, and I just remembered that I loved one weird one called "Attack of the Mutant Camels." It was only available on Commodore systems as far as I know.

Was that Pitfall maybe?

Cosmos back in the early 90s- well... that's vintage isn't it?

Low rez graphics game for PCs and was controlled using the keyboard! I still have it! I have an old PC with Windows 98 on it- some day, I'll play it again!

Phoenix, Centipede, Joust, Tetris, & more. Never could last very long at defender but really enjoyed watching people play it. While playing centipede at the arcade that damned rolling ball would catch the skin on my hand & pinch the shit out of me.

e had to cross rivers with alligators, jump barrels coming at him and not get hit by low flying ducks.

I don't remember the name of it but I gave it to my GF's 10 y/o son and he
topped something like 20,000 points and all the levels in about a half hour..
That beat the highest score up to that date by several thousand..
Kids..I hate 'em .... I was lucky to make it over the first alligator

YES it was Pitfall... My girls and I were living together at the time and we were always competing for high score. I had more time than they did to play it and I think my top score was 91,000....that was unusual cause I usually wasn't any good at ANY of those games...hence...TEETH MARKS....
