Several months back, I posted what may have been the first coin-op video game popularity chart, from the March, 1976 issue of RePlay. Today, I thought I'd post some other charts from the 1970s
First, for those who missed the earlier post, here's the March, 1976 chart:
The next chart I have was published in RePlay's October , 1976 issue as part of its annual operators' poll.
Here's the chart from the November, 1977 issue of RePlay
Play Meter published its first chart in November, 1977 (also as part of its operators' poll):
The 1978 charts from RePlay and Play Meter
Finally, the 1979 charts. Note that by this time, Play Meter had started publishing its monthly charts (the first was in June 1979). RePlay would publish its first monthly chart in April, 1980.
If there is interest in these, I could post some from the 1980s (the 1980s charts had a lot more data. Some of the Play Meter charts, for instance, included average weekly earnings per machine).
