Any old-school gamers here got any favorite pre-NES era games? I consider anything up until about 1983 or '84 to be from the golden age. Here's a few of my favorites:

Arcade: Q-Bert/Kangaroo/Dig Dug
Apple II: Sneakers/Dungeon Campaign/Swashbuckler
Atari 2600: Adventure/Stampede/Wizard of Wor
C-64: Beamrider/Jumpman/Tir Na Nog
Intellivision: Lock N'Chase/Venture
and of course, Pong in any 2-player form and any type of Pacman ftw!

the nes is part of the golden age. they owned 90% of the game market back then and Nintendo Power was the magazine with the most subscriptions EVER. so i think the NES is also part of this age

Well, yeah Nintendo was around, but they had only made a few arcade games during the 25 year span before the NES console came out. And it took a couple years for that to be able to bring the market back from the '83 crash. It's more like silver age. I'm refering to the first big boom of arcades and primitive consoles.
