Hello, fellow Video Game enthusiasts;

I used to list my high scores in my signature but I kept running out of characters to list the scores like I wanted so I figured I'd make a list in a topic here on the forums.

I play on my PC using MAME 0.146.  If I use the Pause button for any reason, the game doesn't count.  There was no Pause button in the arcades.

When playing most games, I use the arrow keys as the joystick and the numpad Enter key as the 'Jump/Fire' button.
When playing Lunar Lander, I use the left and right arrows for rotation, the numpad Enter key for 'Thrust', and the numpad 0 key for 'Abort'.
When playing vs. Super Mario Bros., the numpad Enter key is still 'Jump', and the numpad 0 key is the 'Run/Fire' button.

A quick note:  All games' settings are Aurcade-compliant with one exception:  If you could do something during the game in the Arcade (getting Galaga's enemies to stop firing at you, hitting the hammer in each of Bowser's Castles in vs Super Mario Bros. when the timer showed '000' thus earning a 50,000 point bonus, etc.), then I consider this to be fair play.  I never intend to submit any of my scores to be recognized officially, so I will play the games as I played them (or at least, tried to) in the Arcade.

With no further ado, here we go:
