Nice list!

One of the games I had on my list that I wish had made the top 20 is Missile Command. Along with Defender, that is the game I play most often when I hit Ground Kontrol, our local retrocade.

Did you play Track & Field with the buttons, or the track ball? The earliest T&F games used the track ball, but they soon found they didn't handle the insane pounding they took, and changed to the buttons. Once people started using items to increase their speed with the buttons (pencils, etc.), they added the guards. I have very fond memories of playing T&F with my friends.

I remember the trackball versions. I preferred the buttons. Growing up in the military, us kids all had the standard military issue combs from the barber shop. They were black and about 4 or 5 inches long. They fit PERFECT between your fingers to get that superspeed button mashing going. Now that I think of it, that game should probably have moved up further on my list...
