Right I have finally got round to doing this! For other people who want to contribute I suggest using the Arcade Museum (http://http) website. You can set the search feature to only show games from certain years, which is very useful indeed!

Here are 10 for each decade, not in order:

Pong - Atari
Sprint - Atari
Breakout - Atari
Deep Scan - Sega

I grew up in arcades, but I'm embarrassed a little to ask exactly what you are requesting here? I'm confused.

It's simple, we want you to pick your favourite 10 arcade games from each decade to be included in a new arcade section here.

I feel the 1970's games were the weakest point in arcade game history as it was it evolution and you guys have already called the shot on most of them, so I won't need to repeat them here..

But.

Commando (capcom)
Paperboy (Atari games)
Choplifter (sega)
Chase h.q.(Taito)
Rolling Thunder (Namco/Atari games)
Ghouls'n'Ghosts (Capcom)
After Burner (Sega)
Shadow warriors (Ninja Gaiden) Technos
R-type 2(Irem)

1990's
The Simpsons (Konami)
Smash TV (Williams)
Mystical Warriors (Konami)
Battle Circuit
Undercover Cops (Irem)
In The Hunt (Irem)
Armoured Warriors (Capcom)
Guardians (Banpresto)

Crystal Castles (absolute favourite)
Gauntlet
Moonwalker
Mr Do!
R-Type
Spy Hunter
S.T.U.N. Runner (Spread Tunnel Underground Network Runner)

Thanks for including Mr. Do! and Crystal Castles, Cryptic.  Both obvious choices for me but I left them out!  LOL

You're welcome, they did stand out for me but as my experiences are limited it was easier to make a list I guess. CC is a must for me as I got to the final level (10) a few times, even if I didn't beat it ;) It also seems most of my gaming was in the 80's lol
