Centipede was a hugely successful arcade game and was also ported to the Atari 2600, 5600, and other Atari systems. It was followed in 1982 by the slightly less successful Millipede. It’s interesting to note that one of Centipede’s two designers was a woman, Dona Bailey, and the game was the first to grab a significant amount of female players.
5. Duck Hunt
Whether you were the kid who sat mere inches from the screen with Nintendo’s plastic “gun” controller or you preferred a more challenging approach, you know you loved Duck Hunt. The 1984 version of this game came bundled with Super Mario Bros. in the NES package.
