Arcade Games

In your society, are Arcades successful and well liked? Roughly, what's the most you've ever spent in an Arcade? What's your view on this type of gaming? Personally, I think it can encourage Gambling if your not careful and when your Gambling the prices are very costly for the games that you are renting out.

In past they used to be favorite. And there were many gamers who used to play. But now that generation is not much active in gaming. And new generation does not like those arcade and the 2D style games as much. And so the world now a days moving towards the 3D type of the games where they have more options and better game experience. Arcade days are not more for sure.

There was a time when I used to play a lot of Arcade games, however, the days of playing arcade games are over. These days, I like playing RPG.
 
Oh, yeah!

Though old-fashioned, arcades games are still very popular (and not just among kids, because adults also still like it a lot). Particularly speaking, I think they have a timeless atmosphere and quality... Not to mention the fact that to this day they serve as inspiration for many other games.

I used to play in arcade before and I have good memories with it. My friends and I used to play Mortal Kombat, Dance Revolution and some rabbits who wants to get carrots. I forgot the name of the game ( Ha.Ha.Ha. ) it was expensive since there are only few arcades built in our area during my younger days. Arcades these days are more cheaper and there are still kids who enjoyed these type of games.

I used to play arcade before back when I was in college. I do it with my friends. We love racing! I hate it when they defeat me! :LOL:

I don't remember how much I've spent but all I know is that I can sit there for 3 hours straight just playing the game.

There are a few malls in my area that have arcades and they are always packed until closing time. It is weird, it is not only kids and teenagers who are there, adults and elderly people also flock the games where you sit on a long rectangular table and you shoot the fishes on the table (the whole table is an LCD) and the prizes are tokens and they stay for hours on there. There are around 3 or 4 of those games in the arcades and it is always packed and you need to wait a long time if you want to play since the players would bring hundreds of tokens with them and stay until they have none or they tire out. When I was a teenager there were mostly families, kids and teens who played and stayed there. I think those games that I am talking about are like a substitute for going to bingo halls for the elderly.

Arcade games are still popular here in our place. This type of game is for all ages which makes them very popular for family bonding. It is a great way to have fun with your love ones. This type of game of also exciting compared to playing in solitary.

Yes RPG seems to be standing test of time. Arcade games were fun due to the way they were made like the time when they were being published on the big boxes. That time is gone. And we don't have that luxury any more. And so we are now moving towards the PC and console games. So that kind of shows the gaming progress.

Arcade games are very interesting in the beginning, however, after some time it will be boring. You will no longer enjoy the game as you begin to feel the monotony. This happens with very Arcade game.

Yes they sound boring because now a days we have lot better gameplay. And things have lot much improved. So that's why people tend to not get interested in arcade type of the games. You can see that it can be pretty difficult to find new kids having interest in the arcade games.
