Favorite Arcade Video Games – Round One

Today we begin voting on our favorite arcade video games. These are video games that many of us used to play on machines in actual arcades, rather than games native to PC/Mac.

I’ve tried to find the best pictures of the original arcade versions of these games, but I don’t know all the original games, so if any images are wrong, please let me know. 

NOTICE: The links are to videos of actual gameplay from the original arcade versions. So the beginning of each one has silent run-throughs and instructions. If you want to see actual gameplay, click into the video a bit.

The bracket has been seeded based on the popularity of the video games, as I was able to determine it from various online sources.

Beware! If you know many of these, there will be tough matchups from the very beginning! I tried to spread them out based on their popularity, according to various online sources, but there will still be some hard choices right from the get-go.

Vote now in Round One!

The deadline is Tuesday evening, January 3.
