    I'm looking to learn more about EMs, and which games collectors consider the best and/or most collectible. What would you consider to be on the EM A-list?

    Thanks for the replies. I guess the answer is that there is no A-list for EMs like there is for 90s B/W games. Whether you like the games or not, I think most would agree that Attack from Mars, Twilight Zone, and Addams are all A-List titles from a collectors standpoint. I was wondering if there was any similar consensus on EMs.

    Quoted from lpeters82:

    CFor overall "popularity" you might want to look at the games which have the most ratings. They tend to be the ones people seek out to play: Fireball (96), Centigrade 37 (87), Wizard! (69), El Dorado (67), Atlantis (65), Grand Prix (64), Abra Ca Dabra (61), Capt. Fantastic (59), Surf Champ (54), Jacks Open (52), Target Alpha (50), etc.

    Thanks for this. This list seems to be the closest to what i was expecting to see on the A-List. I think your theory makes total sense.

    Quoted from Matesamo:

    I would list Fireball, El Dorado, and Grand Prix as the "top" EM machines in the terms you are looking for. If you find any of those in great condition at a good price you would be the envy of everyone on the EM board.

    I guess I got lucky!

    Thanks for all the replies. To clarify my question, I was trying to find out what the titles are (if any) that most consider to be A-list. When talking about DMDs, most people would consider Twilight Zone to be an A-lister, whether or not they actually like the machine. Conversely, they may have a machine like, say Apollo 13, that they love but that very few people would consider an A-list title.
