28. “X-Men” arcade game by Konami (1992)  This was not the first X-Men video game – there were a few home console and computer releases before, but this was undoubtedly the biggest. There were six playable X-Men characters (Cyclops, Storm, Wolverine, Colossus, Dazzler and Nightcrawler), and as many as six people could play simultaneously in the fight against Magneto, who attracted a lot of quarters. An IGN review of a 2010 re-creation for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade noted it was “ludicrously mindless” but “simply a blast to play with friends.” A slew of X-games for various formats have followed. There’s a pinball machine too. ( The International Arcade Museum )
