Article The Dorklyst: The 15 Greatest Arcade Games of the 90's

November 10, 2010

Before everyone had four consoles in their house and a phone that had more games than phone numbers, the only way to play the newest and coolest videogames was to steal $10 from your mom's fanny pack, hop on your bike, and head to the arcade. We honor the quarters that sacrificed their lives in the last decade of the 20th century with this tribute.

15. Gauntlet Legends

Gauntlet itself was always pretty fun – a hack 'n slash fantasy adventure with wizards and warriors and hordes of bad guys – but the big selling point here was the ability to level up and actually save your characters; giving you the feeling of real accomplishment with each token spent. It was like owning the game, except you were leasing it one quarter at a time. Then again, if you wanted to actually accomplish something, you could have been putting those tokens into that skeeball game to work your way to that glow-in-the-dark yo-yo that was going for a mere 150,000 tickets.

14. NFL Blitz

I don't think anyone would disagree with football having a lot less rules about late hits, excessive celebration, and pretty much doing whatever you want on the field (well, maybe actual players would). For all of us, NFL Blitz was a dream come true – brutally hitting players a good 10 seconds after the play was over, flinging opponents onto the ground, constant fake punts, pass interference that would send most refs into an epileptic frenzy – it had everything. This was what I think everyone expected the XFL to be, and if it had been, maybe it would still be around today (RIP Memphis Maniax).
