Arcades were something amazing growing up with. I talked to a few friends about their memories of arcades of the past, as well as what the future holds for them.

  • I got too many arcade memories. I'd have to make my own video unless someone else invites me to be in a video like this one. I guess the first thing that comes to mind was how often I'd play OutRun 2 SP when I had to watch my cousins at a local Chuck E. Cheese. I was taking driving lessons at the time, so I tried to apply things I was learning while playing the game, like using my right foot for both pedals and watching for other cars' blinkers to know when they're about to turn (Cars in OutRun 2 actually do turn on their left and right blinkers in case you haven't noticed)

  • Arcades were the best. All the people were there and they had the best graphics.

  • Love this. Can relate to so many of the conversations here. My holy Grail arcade games I would love to own are Dragon's Lair and Star Wars Trilogy.

  • There was a bowling alley very close to the house I grew up in called the T-Bowl that had some arcade games.

    They had great games like Double Dragon, Contra, Rygar, and ShinobiI just to name a few. My game of choice was Super Punch-Out!

  • When I was a kid there wasn't any arcades that didn't require a good drive to mostly at the mall 30 minutes away. Fortunately, there was a pizza place in my town and I was friends with the owners kids we would spend summers playing Nintendo in their house upstairs from the Bar/Pizza place and then we would go downstairs and their dad would open the coin door to the arcades and basically "enter" a bunch of plays into the machines and let us go to town. He would also cycle through different titles every month. I think it was a service he paid for that would bring the games and then next month take them back and put new ones in their place. I remember playing Outrun, Bubble Bobble, Operation Wolf, Double Dragon, and various pinball machines just to name a few. There was another pizza place that was near the Mall and my family would go there every time we did make that mall trip and they only had one machine and it was Devastators by Konami which either they ripped off to make the GI Joe arcade or vice versa cause they both are pretty identical. Those are my fondest memories of arcade playing.

  • It's just zen? Who the hell says shit like that?!

    Oh…right…I do. Lol great job with this, Russ. Glad the footage was put towards an awesome video about reliving the glory days of arcades. Much love for the arcade era.

  • I kinda missed out on the arcade frenzy. I got to play them some but my parents urged me to save my quarters and get candy instead. To them, arcade games were akin to gambling in how fast an 8 year old could lose money on one. Anyway, that's how I got fat.

  • They totally did sir! They totally did. I always went to a place called Alladins in our mall and our $1 movie had a ton of arcades on this second floor wrap around that had about 20/30 arcades.
