    I like the shooting ones, like Area 51, Time Crisis, and Crisis Zone. I never liked the fighting ones.

    I don't care for the new games that much at all. Everytime I go to a Dave and Busters I give a racing game a run or 2 and that's about all I can handle. After that I seek out the 1 or 2 classic arcade games they stock and the hand full of pinball games. I have found that I love pinball.

    The one thing that I've noticed about new games that really bugs me is that they are time based not level based. So you pay $1 for 3 minutes of life and no matter how well you do your dead when time expires (unless you pump in another $1). Older games let you play forever if you're good enough on the original $.25 and give you a real sense of accomplishment.

    To tell the truth, I've never heard of Galaga. Is it an older arcade game?

    Yes, I believe it came out in '82. It's basically a suped up Space Invaders. I'm sure you've seen it but haven't put the name with it.

    The one thing that sticks out in Galaga vs. Space Invaders is that it's possible to have your ship captured by one of the "insects" with the possibility of getting it back to join with your next ship.

    I also think Galaga was the first game to have a "Bonus Level."

    I love pinball, we used to have a machine in the house when I was a kid. I never really got all that good at it, but I love the realness of it. I also like Air Hockey, skee-ball, and pool, but I can't say I'm any good at those either.
