Tank. It came out after Pong, somewhere around 1974-1975. If you walked around on the carpet and built up a good static charge, you could shock the game and it would give you a credit.

Contra, and for some odd reason I can STILL remember the (the D-word) cheat-code for that game.

up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, a, b, a, b, select, start

Anybody else remember that? I can't believe after all these years it's still so fresh in memory.

Ahh, those where the days. We thought tank was a real break through when compared to pong. And yes, I did own a pong box. :roll:

My Favorite Computer Game of All Time:

Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II

I've spent more time playing that game in my lifetime than any other game.... Nothing is better than it, almost 6 years after it came out and I still stop by just to check on the old community. I hope the MSN Gaming Zone never removes support for this game or... It will die =(

I remember asking mom and dad for 5 bucks when we went to the mall so I could drop coinage on Galaga, Tron, Donkey Kong, Defender, Joust... and trying to shoot the torpedo down the hatch in that Star Wars game.

For home use though, my parents opted for an Intellivision...when everyone else had Atari. It sucked because there was about only one other dude around (out of 50) that had one. While Atari freaks were swapping games, I had to save my allowance to buy those $#@^ I'vision games.

Ah, the early '80's. What a fine time to be alive and young...

I swear i could beat Super Mario Bros. 3 in less than 4 hours. and Super Mario Bros. in about an hour and a half.

My all time Fav has to be Super Mario World for the SNES. And Alien Vs Predator for the Atari Jaguar, the sounds effect in that game kicked ass for it's time.

But i still miss Space Invaders for the Atari.

Even I remember playing that and for some reason always getting slaughtered. I could never make it very far because of those damned space craft that would attack in seemingly larger and larger groups. Regardless it one of the all time greats.
