Either that or he strategically went to bed.

He is about 14 hours ahead of us.

The others are correct. (Inferno bound to be a controversial pick, and bear in mind at least three on the list are lame ducks).

Net is 1.

Solar Quest and Super Pac-Man made it.

The others did not. Net is -4.

And I think that mathematically clinches it for BeeJay, assuming no other discoveries of unintentional oversights.

Oh well...it was still fun trying to figure out what's in Weehawk's head. I still can't believe Major Havoc didn't make your list!

Wait!! Hopper Robo just *has* to be on the list, right??!?!?! :lol:

If you're serious, I'm pretty sure I never saw a Major Havoc machine. Not sure how widely released it was. Things may have been different in different parts of the country.

Not expecting any flurry of 10-pointers to overtake BeeJay, I'll be declaring this over pretty shortly.

Hints on those remaining:

#40: A marginal choice, one of the three that will make way for Time Pilot, Phoenix, and Space Duel.

#41: Surpised this game wasn't more popular than it was, and I've mentioned that recently on the forum

#58: Surprised nobody has got this. A pretty obvious choice in my opinion.

#68: A game I saw a lot back in the day, but you don't hear about much now.

#73: Bound to be a controversial choice but being, behind Centipede, my second favorite videogame of all time I'm not going to give it up. And that probably ought to give it away.

#84: Big hint - Tom Cruise played a character who was an expert at this game.

#89: A late Golden Era title perhaps not that well known, but I think definitely deserves to be here.
