Long before the Wii, the Xbox or the PlayStation, they were the kings of the arcade ... the invaders from space, the Pac-Men, the angry, barrel-throwing apes.
They took our lunch money, broke our spirits and made us curse their names aloud. But as frustrating as classic arcade games can be - not to mention hard on the wrists - they still have plenty of fans.
As video-game technology made advances in the years since games like "Pac-Man" and "Donkey Kong" first appeared, many of the classic games began to be phased out of the arcade.
But fans aren't willing to give them up and continue to find new ways to play them.
