    Indiana Jones was fun, but I think I was only able to beat it ONCE. What was up with the hourglass? I could never figure out what that thing did.

    Same with E.T., I beat it one time. Those games were hard!

    Almost anything Activision put out was a must have...I still have a boatload of the patches somewhere...

    Berzerk (I'd love to see that show up on one of the "Classic Arcade" type disks!)

    Custer's Revenge (Just Kidding...though my dad DID own the game...)
