Played some 7800 the other day with my son. For some reason I like playing the 7800 version of centipede and galaga. Both are good ports and I like how slow the ships are in galaga. Gives you more to really hit the enemies

I had 2 7800 consoles act up so I emulate 2600 & 7800 like no other now :lol:. Using a proper controller for the 7800 games is a life saver.

I think I did a quick variation of this some pages back but after more time with the library, my top 5 7800 games are probably:
Centipede
Dig Dug
Xevious
Commando
Ikari Warriors

Honorable Mention:
Pole Position II
Joust
Food Fight
Galaga
Donkey Kong
Choplifter
Ms. Pac Man
Desert Falcon

Cool Novelties:
Ninja Golf (wow...)
Double Dragon (interesting this was ported. So hard though.)
Mario Bros (fun & cool history)
Dark Chambers (7800 dungeon crawler)
Ballblazer (3D on 7800!)

Let's add these to my honorable mentions above:
Donkey Kong Jr
Tank Command

mas, how's that system working out for you? Have you looked into the Harmony SD cart?

It runs great. I also acquired the sears tele games version of the heavy sixer also. I need help though. I need to purchase a 5200. I ended up getting 12 games and the ref switch and a controller for free but no system. If anyone has a system they are willing to sell let me know
