Down to my last life
Sadly, the type of video game arcade I grew up with is going extinct very quickly. Rows and rows of cranes and stupid stack n grab machines are taking up valuable floor space where vertical shooters or the latest from SEGA once stood and I lament this greatly. Luckily for me, I have one small corner in a small arcade in a small seaside town that reminds me of what it was like, and I write about it in my latest article for Retro Collect.
If like me, you love your coin op gaming, you really should get out there and play. Next time you go there might be a plethora of steel claws waiting for you and not a screen in sight…
