  1. My favorite game was by far Contra for Nintendo. :) I was suspecting an analogy to how this teamwork should carry over into our personal finances, but you didn’t go there. Not explicitly so. You definitely got me thinking though. :)

      Contra rocks! I normally do tie it with personal finances or blogging. I’m slacking, haha! But seriously, you could actually apply this concept to many aspects of life. I’m glad it got you thinking and thanks for stopping by!

    I loved PacMan! No teamwork other than my friends crowding around me with incessant commentary!

  3. Space Invaders, Atari style. I recall thinking the tracer rounds I was shooting were the coolest thing ever. Pac Man comes in a very close second. Fruit Ninja doesn’t even compare.

    We played games outside or in bad weather we played board games. This is prior to electronic games. Pin ball games were for older kids. PacMan and Pong were out during my adult days.

    I was more into sports when younger, so this translated into baseball cards. Of course, I actively bought and sold them:)

    That’s not to say I didn’t like games. There were some I liked, way back in the day. PacMan and Galaga come to mind. Old school, right:)

    I did have an experience with both games recently (within the last year) when we were at a local Japanese restaurant that had a long wait. Interestingly, there was a sit down PacMan/Galaga combo game. I didn’t care how funny it might have looked being an adult (and parent), I still sat down, put quarters in it, and played. First time in 20 years, probably. I did remarkably well too. Like riding a bike, you just don’t forget it:)

    Fun post, thanks for the distraction!

      I was more into basketball cards and I threw them around or stuck them on my bike tire. Gallaga is fun. I liked when I doubled up for two spaceships! Sounds like you had a blast at the arcade. Distractions anytime!

    An important article… I often wonder about how much I’ll look back and wish I had spent more of my adult life playing like a kid again. As for video games… I still have fond memories of Frogger!

    I know college grads now who talk about how great the people they played World of Warcraft with were – only they had never met most of them in real life.

    My favorite “game” was Legos, although my family played a ton of Trivial Pursuit too, which is always a good time. My roommates and I now like to play Catch Phrase when we have enough guests over.

  8. I loved Frogger! My sister was always way better than me though. We had the Atari 5200 and went through paddles like they were water. The buttons constantly wore out from our aggressive competitiveness.

    My Dad LOVED Pacman. Winner always continued playing and he would cycle through us kids all night long, never losing a game.

    What fun! Thanks for bringing back those memories =)

  9. I remember playing Kool-aid Man on the Atari 2600! Combat was another Atari game that was actually 2-player. Wow…that seems like ages ago!

  10. My absolute favorite game is Galaga. Now for two person games, my college roommate and I used to play Rampage quite a bit in the basement of the Student Union. There are many other games that I love as well. I really played a lot of video games growing up, but also had plenty of outdoor activities as well. I was quite busy and got a lot of things done.

  11. I love old shooter games like Twin Cobra. I got all the way to the end and starts over again at double speed a couple of times. The best games for me are the ones that you can play for a while on one quarter as you get better. Bubble Bobble, Final Fight, and other games. I have a bunch of games on my old XBOX via emulation. awesome!
    Remember some of these old games?
    Bad dudes VS dragon ninjas
    Heavy Metal with the spin stick
    Cabal with the trackball
    Good times.
