We've covered TV and the movies, but not the arcade! So who was the foe you always wanted to beat every time you slipped a quarter in?

Bowser and Gannon might get the press, but nothing to me beats the thrill of chasing after Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde ever time Pac-Man or one of his relatives eats a power pellet and they become blue and defenseless. It feels good to go after them after they keep coming relentlessly after you (especially Blinky, who's perhaps the most merciless of the ghosts).

Your thoughts?

I think I like Jason on the Friday The 13th game.

"Evil Otto" in Berzerk or Frenzy was quite a villian in the arcade.

Mike Tyson....back when he could Punch You Out!

Little did we know at the time that he would later replace Glass Joe in Real Life.
