Kind of makes you nostalgic for a part of an era that you recognize but never had any participation in, doesn’t it?
Long read, but pretty interesting…..and yes, I spent far too many hours wasting quarters in arcades; these days, the quarters are accumulated into lump sums for games like Battlefield with which to waste my time.
I spent many hours in a dark, noisy arcade called Time Out. In the 80s, everyone had a game they were good at. Mine was Galaga.
Defender and Galaga. Remember Tempest?
Wreck it Ralph reminded me of all that time spent in arcades.
I need to see Wreck It Ralph. also, go read Ready Player One.
