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.

1980's
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)

Ok, only just seen this thread despite it being bumped twice. I have a very limited experience of arcades and retro gaming as a whole but, I have sampled several games and systems. For this reason, I will list those I can remember (your lists are helping me) and enjoyed the most:

1970's
Space Invaders

1980's
Crystal Castles (absolute favourite)
Gauntlet
Moonwalker
Mr Do!
R-Type
Spy Hunter
S.T.U.N. Runner (Spread Tunnel Underground Network Runner)
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

1990's
Time Crisis
SoulCalibur
For the record, Alien verses Predator on the Atari Jaguar holds a Guinness World Record!

To remove any awkwardness, I have mesothelioma. I don’t seek sympathy, just acceptance. Thanks

Thanks for including Mr. Do! and Crystal Castles, Cryptic.  Both obvious choices for me but I left them out!  LOL
Going to the final frontier, gaming...

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
