The six games, which were announced Thursday during a special ceremony in Rochester, were chosen by a committee composed of journalists, scholars and video game industry members who based their decision on a selection of criteria: icon status, longevity, geographical reach and wider influence on culture.

  1. Asteroids, Defender, enough quarters on them to buy a new car. Donkey Kong, got me fired from a job. Missile Command, audio of still hear in my head. Some car racing game, some cool music while crusing. Tempest, and some other, actually could bought new car and a boat. πŸ™‚

  2. Zelda. Hands down. Still my favorite. Actually am working my way through Majora’s Mask on our WiiU.
