I thought you could place a 470 ohm 1/4 watt resistor across the socket to get rid of the LED flicker when used in the controlled lights of older games.

From what I understand of the problem, you only need the resistor with the LED if it flickers, not on a regular bulb. If you change from an LED back to a bulb, the resistor goes away too.
