    I really liked Tempest back in the day.
    I have it for my computer, but it's not the same as standing in front of that big cabinet and spinning the "dial".

    No, all those arcade cabinets with the crazy control setups just can't be emulated correctly, even with game pads. Just not the same

    That big trackball on Missile Command was cool but it sure killed my thumb after some long gaming sessions!

    Played it a bunch , but I wasnt like most who were really good at it , I would just shred the rocks . My roomate at Ole Miss was an asteroids ace , but he just hunted the UFOs , he would get allmost all the rocks gone and haul butt straight up or side to side and pick off the the little UFOs for the big points . he could usually leave the machine with the High Score at 999,990 , I rock shot short of rolling it over to 0

    I'm a Missile Command and Centipede fan. Another couple of my favorites were Break Out and Quix. I don't remember for sure if I ever saw them as actual arcade machines but they were definately arcade quality game play. Good ol' Atari 2600...
