elder scrolls is way older than shenmue.

it was definitely groundbreaking and beautiful for it's time... it wasn't that much fun though imo. stacking boxes with a forklift and riding the bus is not what i play video games for.

I know its older, but you couldn't interact with just about anything in the environment. Thats what I was referring to. I believe that started on a limited basis with Elder Scrolls III, and on a more complete basis in Elder Scrolls IV and V.

Am I really the only person to list an actual arcade video game?

I thought about listing Super Offroad, being my favorite arcade game, but decided not to bc there isn't really a story or anything.

My girlfriend in high school worked at a miniature golf place and as part of her paycheck she got like $100 in game tokens. I used to play Blitz for hours and hours and hours at the huge arcade there. I had every single high score and record. Tim Biakabatuka was the man on that game. I wish I could have pulled a George from Seinfeld and somehow taken it home to keep the high scores intact. AWESOME GAME, and probably should have been on my list. I played Time Crisis a ton too.

SFII, Golden Axe, Tekken, Ninja Gaiden and Double Dragon were all considerations.

I remember when Wal-Mart had arcade games out in the front door area and me and my sister and brother would play them while my mother was in the store. Mortal Kombat, Street fighter, Moonwalker, Operation Wolf, Captain America and the Avengers, King of the Monsters, The Simpsons, X-Men and there was this one that was a fighting game that was clay-mation people fighting each other. Can't remember the name of it.

Galaga - best of all time.

http://www.breumelhof.nl/emulationroms/online-arcade/113-galaga

I'm not a seasoned gamer like a lot of y'all so I can't come up with ten.

Started playing CoD when MW2 came out. Trying Battlefield 3 and getting owned right now. MW3 sometimes and some occasional Madden.

I thought the first Unreal Tournament was good. And Duke Nukem 3D would have to make somebody's list.

Can't argue with the original Zelda and Super Mario Bro being on anybody's list.

Surprised no Pac-Man, but maybe that is my age showing... :-)
