    The last game I played was Joust, one of my favorite arcade games of the early 80's

    I used to love playing that game in the arcade...and yet was so bad at it. I don't think I ever passed more than 1 level before I ate it.

    Joust in the arcade, back in the day had one weakness, it was the fact that the wing flap control was a button, the only way to get lift was to hit that button in rapid succession which eventually caused fatigue. The modern way to play is to download the arcade ROM, and play the ROM through MAME (multiple arcade machine emulators), I have the ROM and MAME, as well as a decent USB ps3 type of controller. It's much better than the arcade as far as keeping the bird in the air. I can get to the egg wave screen almost every time I play. Btw, I also play Joust 2 through MAME. These are great days for fans of vintage arcade games.

    If you're not familiar with Joust 2, the main feature is that you can switch between the familiar "flying ostrich" and a flying "spynx" for lack of a better description.

    Joust was awesome. I can't tell you how much money I dumped into that game in my younger days. I was pretty good at it. It's been about 35 years since I last played it, so I couldn't possibly tell you what my highest level was.

    One of the single worst things about Joust was if you got stuck on a level with multiple pterodactyls and you weren't able to get to the last enemy. Those damn flying dinos could wreck your shit and you couldn't do anything about it. Making this even worse was at higher levels when there was only one spawn spot and those things just kept zipping past.

    Loved that game though. When I was younger, I wanted to buy one when i grew up. I'd still like to have one in the house. If Uncle Powerball ever looks down on me with a jackpot win, I'll be building a home with a nice sized mancave in it and I'd definitely be getting all of the following games put in it:

    • Joust
    • Defender
    • Dig Dug
    • Donkey Kong (the original)
    • Asteroids
    • Tron

    Those 6 games ate more of my quarters than any/every machine has since that time put together. ;)

    I don't think I've ever burnt myself out on this epic strategy game, perfected.
