Matt, I know your intentions are good but asking people to come up with a list of 15 games off the cuff is asking a little too much I think.

I dont know about top 15 but I've loved Keystone Kapers and Gorf since I was 5 years old. Playing the 2600 on family game night as a kid was the highlight of my week and when it came my turn to pick what we played it was always Keystone Kapers or Gorf!

I know its not quite on subject, so for that I apologize. But one of the games back in the day that i remember myself and my best friend playing all the time was the 7800 version of Double Dragon. Of course there are much better versions out there, but for the two of us this game just had a fun factor that made us play this game constantly and always kept us coming back for more.

 

As for the 2600, once again there are better versions out there, but yet another that my video game buddy and i always played was Joust. Just pure fun!

Dragonfire, Dragonstomper... pretty much anything with dragons in it (well, except Swordquest).  Dragonstomper is the best Atari 2600 game ever made, IMO.

I just can't choose only 15...!
Apart from Frogs and Flies, which is my favourite VCS game, these are my favs in random order:
- Frogs and Flies
- Montezuma's Revenge
- Wizard of Wor
- Ms Pacman
- Joust
- Mario Bros
- Robot Tank
- Pole Position
- Boxing
- Galaxian
- Moon Patrol
- Centipede
- Asteroids
- Bump 'n' Jump
- Hero
- Turmoil
Well they are 16... but there are many games more or less close to them in my opinion: Phoenix, Dig Dug, Starmaster, Fishing Derby, Dragonfire, River Raid, Missile Command, Sir Lancelot, Battlezone, Space Attack, Kangaroo,... Atari 2600 has so many masterpieces!
