Top 10 2600 games? by 2014-02-15 23:38:10

What are your Top 10 2600 games? Everyone's list is different!

Here's mine:

1. Adventure
2. Space Invaders
3. Warlords
4. Asteroids
5. Missile Command
6. Solaris
7. Pitfall II & Pitfall (Can't separate these two!)
8. River Raid
9. The Official Frogger (SuperCharger)
10. Beamrider

I want to compile the list to come up with the Top 10. Each position gets a point (#1 = 10 points, #10 = 1 point, etc.)

I'm considering using the classic 2600 scores list (which will return soon) to come up with the Top 10. But I'm thinking this list should exclude homebrews? (We could do a different list for them.) Those are too recent to be considered "ALL TIME" top games.

What's your thoughts?

1. Escape from the MindMaster (absolutely SPECTACULAR for a 2600 game)
2. Pitfall or Pitfall 2--same as Greg, I can't make up my mind which one
3. Kaboom!--so simple, yet so addicting!
4. Super Breakout--having several different formats to choose from is pretty awesome, many of which played differently too.
5. Adventure
6. Superman--a very different one, having a ton of screens
7. H. E. R. O.
8. Megamania (nice variety for a shooter)
9. Tunnel Runner
10. River Raid

Hmm, tough one. I only had about a ten games for the 2600 anyway! Still, here's my list:

1. Stargate
2. Millipede (could vie with Stargate for number 1 spot, tbh - I loved them both, but did a lot better with Millipede)
3. Yars' Revenge
4. Jr Pac Man
5. Galaxian
6. Missile Command
7. Moon Patrol
8. Crystal Castles
9. Space Invaders
10. Jungle Hunt
