It's a toughie and I could think of others and re shuffle them all day, I probably will now...

But these spring to mind...

1. Space invaders (The king,has to be in the house)
2. Gauntlet
3. Defender
4. Pheenix
5. Pac man
6. Outrun
7. Rastan
8. Rygar
9. Galaxians
10.Kung-fu master

I bet you could age each user, to the day, based on their choices...

IMO:

Pokmon Blue (GB)
Wonder Boy 3: the Dragon's trap (Sega Master system)
Monster World 4 (Megadrive)
Alex kidd In miracle World
Super Mario Bros

And many others, but these fives are great

this is not in a particular order though
Game design is all about decomposing the core of your game so it becomes simple instructions.

How retro is retro?
I've always loved PC homebrews.

1) Liero
2) C-Dogs
3) Paintball Party Online (Don't know how retro is retro, this was 1990s)
4) Mario Wars (when in was in DOS)
5) Generally
6) Gauntlet
7) Sonic the Hedgehog 2
8) Mega Man & Bass

I was born with siblings, so I typically loved multiplayer games (played on one computer with splitscreen)Rory2013-05-31 00:16:29
