Its hard out there for Pac-Man. Relive the drama from behind the scenes of this classic video arcade. Should there be a sequel to this untold story?

NBA Jam at number 1? That’s up for debate.

We would have listed the Blitz 200 / NBA Showtime combo at #1. Two highly addictive and fun sports games rolled into one amazing 4-player arcade cabinet. That can’t be beat.

See the remainder of the top 6 (most addictive) sports arcades in The Guardian’s blog and judge for yourself if they nailed it or missed a few classic arcade titles.

Its not bad enough that this game, which touts itself as the most boring-ever, delivers on its promise. It also makes you really hungry (if you are in to that sort of thing, Taco Bell that is).
Watch how they apply the vinyl decals and backlit to this classic arcade game frame. This is reminiscing of how PrimeTime Amusements performs their classic arcade game restoration and vinyl sticker installation.

Don’t miss out on the heart-punding excitement of The Waiting Game, you can play the online version here!

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!
