For me, I still think the greatest Arcade game ever is Pac-Man, just because of the phenomenon that the game brought with it. Donkey Kong was a close 2nd. I only managed to get to the Pie Factory a few times, but only got past it once. Bah!! Dragon's Lair and Space Ace were revolutionary and I spent the most time and money on those 2 games. It was a whopping 50 Cents per play!!! But the one game that I absolutely dominated on and was somewhat of a "celebrity" here with the kids was Ghost N Goblins. I found and created so many patterns for the game that had the other kids scratching their heads in how I could just obliterate any scores that were put up in the morning. Thinking back on those Saturday mornings when I would stroll into the Yellow Brick Road Arcade, the kids parting like the Red Sea as I made my way to the Ghost N Goblins Cabinet was a rush to say the least.

One quarter on that game would last me anywhere from 4-6 hours, non-stop. I would simple quit because I would never lose at all. I flipped the game 6x's on average. As for Pac-Man, the most Keys I ever got in one sitting was 24 Keys. That took about what seemed like 4 hours. Maybe it was 3. Can't remember exactly. I pretty sure it was 4 because of what time my Mom dropped me off at the Arcade. Only reason I stopped playing this particular session was because my Mom came into the arcade and dragged me off the game because it was late at night. Bah!!
