    I like arcades. Love them more than the home consoles. However, it seems like the arcade is going the way of the dinosauer.

    Yep. Used to have two nearby, both closed. Still go to Dave and Busters sometimes, though.

    I liked the way they used to be........................before DDR. It's cool to watch the people who can do it, I wait to see if they'll trip and fall when they go really fast.

    There's some great games that one would only find at the arade. For instance, thge Jurassic Park first person shooter. That was great.

    There was one game from Japan. Where you are a cop. You play it standing up and the camera actually moved as you did. It was pretty cool.

    I will spend any amount of money on Hydro Thunder. It's my greatest vice. We have a bunch of arcades by me. DDR, and other rythym games, are what keeps them afloat. There are alot of goths who wish they were Aisan. Don't get me wrong, I like anime and the like. But these kids are like Oakzap on steroids.

    It wasn't bad on consoles, but it doesn't compare. It sucks, though. Most arcades have replaced it with the crap that is Arctic Thunder.

    "Pyro will turn you to toast!"
    "Nothing moves the Blob!"
    "The White Queen welcomes you to die!"
    "Juggernaut will flatten you!"
    "X-men! Welcome to die!"
    "I am Magneto, you are nothing!"
    "I am Magneto, Master of Magnet!"
    "You are helpless against my power, X-Men!"
    "X-Men, welcome to die!!"
    "X-Chicken!"
    "Kill you!"
    "You are dead!"



    I loved how Wendigo would jump out and say his own name.

    "WEN-digo!!!:mad:"

    probably could've bought 2 or 3 of those machines with the quarters I spent on 'em.
