Yes, absolutely. The atmostphere was fun, and I miss the feel of playing games with an arcade stick.

oh i know like mortal kombat 2 with a joystick and button destroys the gameplay of all of the newer mortal kombat games. hell the snes version is close but the joystick is better. rayden's teleport was just a flick of they joystick but on consoles you actually had to press the pad down up which isnt as effective.
Exactly! I bought an arcade stick for PC / 360 a while ago, and Mortal Kombat 9 was the first chance I've had to use it with a fighter. It feels so nice and takes me back. The movements are much more fluid.
ah nice wish i had money to get one of those though would be nice to use one for my SF4 and my mame mk, mk2 and mk3 on the pc. i miss those sticks though

yeah but me and a buddy had a few places we could go that one place in indy we could get 400 tokens for 2o bucks every saturday plus extras. and another place we learned that several machines if you knew about them you could get tokens from those machines without the owners knowing lol

No. Not really. It's cheaper to buy games and play at home. LOL.

if you knew how to play at the arcade you wouldnt have to spend that much. took me 20 bucks and that lasted me a whole month to play on 400 tokens total two go kart rides and 2 mini golf admissions. the mid 90's were awesome at the arcades. the buy games and play at home suck cause you dont get the interaction and the reaction and the feeling of when you beat the game or when you beat your equal at a game.

I do, but I'd love them more if they were cheaper.

The arcade I was most fond of was Sega World in Picadilly, London. It's a shame it shut down, that arcade had everything a kid could ever want.

i think 25cents to a dollar was pretty good and the majority of games were 50 cents or in most arcades two tokens to play. and if you find the right arcade you got lots of tokens for a small amount of money. so it really wasnt as expensive as buying today's games just think to play today games you haveto pay 60 for a game and for xbox you gotta pay for the internet twice a month. then you have to pay for internet anyways which most runs between 20-50 bucks or more. a month i would spend about 30 dolalrs total and got to play many many many many many many games.

most definitely, there was just a certain feeling you would get when walking into a nice arcade and being surrounded by all the sounds and cool cabinets. I feel sorry for the kids that grow up without them because they really missed out.

Can't say I do.

I honestly prefer games from 2004 and on.
