Funny, we also had a 7-Eleven where I lived with a gameroom inside. I had the occasional Twinkle, but Snickers and Reeses Pieces were the thing.

Over the course of a few years (games revolving in and out), it was pinball machines (Xenon), Space Invaders, Asteroids, Donkey Kong, Centipede, DigDug, Mrs. Pac Man (that was really big for awhile), Space Invaders, Galaga, etc.



Centipede was the only video game I ever got good at. There was one at a gay bar near where I lived in Lakewood, Ohio that I used to go to... a friend got me started on the game, and I was hooked. Got to put my initials on the board many times, although I never came close to the top score.
