Reminiscing fondly on a time now passed, today's main Gamasutra feature and the latest Question of the Week response round-up takes a look back at arcade games and presents the answers to: “Now that the Western market is largely finished producing video games specifically for arcades, what are your favorite arcade games of all time, and why?” Out of a multitude of classic arcade suggestions, some of the leading contenders for favorite title include Robotron 2084: "Robotron has the perfect blend of mayhem and simplicity. The controls are extremely simple but difficult to master requiring a zen-like meditative state to fully exploit. The varied swarming enemies require split second reflexes to identify and react to. The first brain wave is enough to chill the most jaded player's blood. It's also an interesting, if bleak, commentary on runaway technology and genetic engineering in the not too distant future. -John Leffingwell, Xot" ...and even Ms. Pacman herself: "Ms. Pacman. She's hot. Rawr. -Anonymous" You can now read the full Gamasutra feature on the subject, including all of the responses to the question (no registration required, please feel free to link to the article from external websites).
