Favorite Classic Game: Frogger

Quote: The best burger joint in town had three arcade units when I was a kid: Frogger, Space Invaders, and Donkey Kong (showing my age here). Frogger was seriously addictive, despite (or perhaps because of) it’s simplicity. The music is enough to drive you mad, but hearing it brings back memories of great times hanging out with friends.
