The Asteroids arcade game is easily one of the top five most successful arcade games released, and arguably Atari’s most successful video game. Atari Asteroids was known to devour quarters when released in 1979. Some arcade operators of the 80s have claimed to have cut holes in the coin boxes to keep the machines from overflowing with quarters!
