Arcade was the best to play Pac-Man! Plus you got to eat some tasty pizza afterwards! I absolutely loved Donkey Kong! Got super good at that one.

Those '80s were quite the era for gaming! Personally, I dabbled in both home and arcade gaming. It's hard to forget classics like Pac-Man and Space Invaders in the arcades. The thrill of trying to beat high scores with friends was unbeatable.
At home, titles like Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda on the NES held a special place in my heart. Their simple yet engaging gameplay was revolutionary. Nowadays, I'm still all about that gaming life, especially with CS2 skins marketplace adding a fresh twist to my gaming adventures.

TETRIS hands down! It was addicting. I still miss it decades later (the 80s version, that is).

I loved PAC MAN. I flipped the scoring on it several times. Hands would get sore playing.

Arcade or bar.  RevolutionX, Missile Command, Donkey Kong, Asteroids, and Space Invaders were my favorites (Had an Atari but no PlayStation and MegaTouch hadn't been introduced yet).

Ms. Pacman was my favorite. i couldn't get enough. Donkey Kong was a favorite & of course pinball but it is too bad we can't find them anymore. it is rare you come across them nowadays.
