I was terrible at this game.

I was at Shorty's last night and was reminded how much I miss the old arcades. Growing up, every pizza place in the world had an arcade, big or small, they were there. Waiting for you to beg your parents for quarters and supplement the restaurant's income.

The first time I felt the satisfaction of entering my initials came when I beat this at Godfather's Pizza:

Then when I was in middle school this incredible arcade opened up and I spent all of my money there.

Then they got robbed and set on fire and they never reopened.

Then there was Gameworks! Wow that was awesome until they stopped getting new games.

There is hope!

Ground Kontrol

That place looks rad as hell. They just relocated or something.


There's a place up north from me that has some games that Shoe keeps bugging me go to as well. Starting on my birthday THIS is happening right in my back yard. Well not litereally, but it's one bus away.

What did you waste all your quarters and time on?

LONG LIVE THE ARCADE.

    Ohmigod I was so bad at Pole Position

    Really, I was terrible at everything except Mortal Kombat and pinball, but that was just because I'd mash buttons at MK until my opponent died from Blanka's electricity attack

    But the first time I ever had my initials up for high-ish score on something was the Addams Family pinball machine

    The Simpsons game, the Avengers game, sometimes Rampage, sometimes some of the shooting games that aren't zombie survival type deals. Kiddy shooting games.

    Skeeball, crane games, and the occasional basketball one. I also like the ones where you'd put a quarter in and you'd try to have it land so it'd knock over more quarters

    I've got a Dave & Busters card with about 50,000 tickets on it

    When I was a kid the local doughnut shop had Lifeforce. I'd go with my dad when he'd go get coffee and yak it up with the other regulars, and I'd rock some motherfucking Lifeforce.

    Once in college, I went to the arcade to get some quarters for laundry and spent the entire $5 on that Capcom trivia game. The one that's like quizbowl combined with DnD. Fuckin old pop culture categories were my bane.

    When I was at college the campus bowling alley was right next to the lgbt offices and the asian student thing, so there were always a lot of gay asian dudes hanging around. Mostly playing the fighting games. Sometimes I'd go and watch these two insanely hot buff ones fight each other out in Street Fighter # and wonder why they don't just actually punch each other. If you get that fit you might as well actually do something about it

    Tokyo Wars! Almost every arcade I went to as a kid had this for some reason. I think virtually every game is better when you have a cab designed around it.

    A very hot woman and I got kicked out of that at Gameworks for taking way too much time hogging the machine.

    So we went and made out in the back of her car in the parking garage instead.
