1979.

These are the only 4 I've played.

Asteroids
Star Raiders
Monaco GP
Flight Simulator

I would add Akalabeth as another, however I've never played it. It was the precurser to Ultima.

In the wake of Pac-Man, 1981 wasn't so bad.

Donkey Kong
Frogger
Crazy climber
Galaga
Bosconian
Tempest

I love original Donkey Kong
 
Well Wiki lists two released that year. So I can't make a top 5, lol.

Lunar Lander and Space Travel. I'm not sure how to order them. :p

We are still playing variations of some of these games.

Breakout (arcade)


The fonz (arcade)



Death race (arcade)


Blockade (arcade)


Colossal adventure (CPC)


That's much better than 1976!
This! 👆

Breakout is the only one I’ve played though, or some version of it.
