I personally love video arcades, it's a shame they are so scarce now. Closest one to me is "8 on the Break," in Dunellen, NJ and since I live in Lakewood, NJ, it's about an hour drive away. I actually talk with the owner quite a bit, he's a really cool guy who even knows how to fix the machines as well, very resourceful. If anyone here watches the "Break weekly" where they hold weekly UMvC3, SSFIV:AE, sometimes SCV and SG tournaments, 8 on the Break is the place they all go (some well-known players such as NYChrisG and Marlin Pie frequent the place).
(this place is much bigger btw, there's a whole other side)
Anyway, Video arcades are not all about fighting games, so I'll move on XD I just love arcades, I try to visit them whenever I can if I'm in the area where one is present. The atmosphere, the people, even the food
It's nice to play a game competitively with someone whom you don't really know and it isn't online. You get a sense of respect, especially since trolling can be bad in real life XD.
Anyone else have any good memories of the Video Arcade? Any arcades you still visit till this day or are they dwindling down in your area as well?
