I so loved Pole Position.
When the Atari 5200 came out with their version of the game, it was exactly like the arcade version. It was quite stunning. Every time you played it, you felt like you were getting one over on "the man" by saving a quarter you'd have otherwise blown at the arcade.
Zelda Rap is the best.
I was invincible at Joust.
still am, in fact...
anyone remember the Arcade Action Hour cartoon from the 80's?

I loved Joust!
