I liked doing the first one so much, that I'm doing it again. I'm letting you chose what game I review on the next Atari Day! I'm not sure when I will call it, but I will give it at least a week, so vote early!

I'm voting for Frankie because I'm intrigued by that game.   Also I'm curious to see if there is actually a data age game that isn't horrible.

Frankenstein's Monster for me too, it is a terrific game. Ghost Manor is a lot of fun as well.

Encounter at L-5 is a terrific Data Age title ... uses paddles too :thumb:

I voted "King Kong" because the bad game reviews tend to be very entertaining for some reason. 

Thank you NSG, it's fun to vote for your next review!

Had to go with Frankenstein as I'm not familiar with it.

Ghost Manor rings a bell (no googling cuz it's cheating my memory banks).

 

The others are all good halloweeny choices except Alien could double on a sci-fi review binge.

Although its theatrical basis is a haunted house/slasher movie deal.

 

Played oodles of *Ghost!**Busters!!!* (song-yell) on my C64 and it was possibly one of the most fun beloved, over-exposed, known-title games to earn that respect.

That's cuz the early Commodore days offered unknown quantities a'plenty, where the box, blurb and artwork were the go-to factors on a buy/rent/pass on baffling game titles.

But that was so exciting too!

Who knew they could make a game about losing your luggage in an airport?! And you expected it to be bad, natch.

And it was! It was terrible!

eh...I'm mixing my platforms here, and Lost Luggage were 2600 titles which made ghostbusting on the 64 such a natural next-step.

 

Anyway, looking forward to all these titles reviewed, eventually, NSG.

The only version of Ghostbusters I've ever played was on the Master System.  It was a very fun game.  Frustrating at times but fun.  I've never seen any of the 2600 games on the vote list so I just picked one.  Alien.

One of the reasons I didn't pick Ghostbusters is because theres tons of vids about it already including the angry video game nerd.

I went  for Ghostbuster 'cause there's a new Pinball table of same title.

I think perhaps at some point a reveiw of them all would be nice :)

 

good choices for Halloween coming up & will be happy to see whichever title NSG chooses :thumb:
