    Default your top 5 arcade machines

    I was reading Blissfulnoise's thread on getting his Sinistar arcade machine and how happy he was, and it got me thinking about which arcades I consider to be my top 5 favorite of all time. Definately a hard decision to pick only 5, but most people don't have the space for 5, if that. What do you consider to be the TOP 5 ??? Dedicated cabs only(no multi machines)
    After much though, here's mine:
    1. Galaga (owned)
    2. Super Mario Bro's Pinball (owned)
    3. Donkey Kong
    4. Tron
    5. Mr. Do's Castle
    These are probably my top 5, but if I could have a classic 80's arcade (or a shack like Flack's out back of my house) then.........
    Too many great games to mention, never enough money or space to own them all. Which ones take you back to the good old days of classic arcade?

    Just sticking with the classics:

    1) Robotron 2084
    2) Sinistar
    3) Tempest
    4) Tron
    5) Food Fight

    Hard to leave Joust, Spy Hunter, Gauntlet, and Crystal Castles, and Gorf off there. But darn it, there you go.

    My goal is to own at least one more from that list by the end of the year. Shooting for 3 more though.

    It's hard not to look at modern cabs and try to squeeze them in there, but it's like a completely different perspective and would be in a different list I think.

    Oh, and pinball should DEFINATELY not be included. I know it's new, but I love the Rollercoaster Tycoon and Monopoly pins. RT plays so damn fast though.

    My favorite pin is probably Pinbot though; I just have very fond memories of it though many other pins are technically better. Also props to Royal Rumble for it's awesome voice samples!
