Classic Arcade Games Get New Life and New Fans….

Published April 11, 2014 Leave a Comment

A new report from USA Today shows that across the country, classic arcade games are making a come-back.

Now if you have been reading this blog you will know that we have been tracking this for a while and we couldn’t be happier as I love the classics.  In my personal opinion there is no better arcade games then the classics, I still remember spending my days playing “1942” and other greats at the arcade around the corner with great fondness.

In the report the gamers state that they are attracted to the human contact that is lost when you play on your smart phone.  That is something that the classic arcade games has over the new media, the ability to compete head to head and not over the internet.  To be able to rib the other player in person.

Another thing that the new gamers are mentioning is the classic joystick action that you cannot get on any other game than the real thing.  No smart phone gives you the excitement like the real thing does. And with the MAME game cabinets like “Arcade Legends” that gives you over 125 games in one cabinet it is easier than ever to start a classic game arcade up.

Game On!
