When's the last time you've been to an arcade, anon?
>>2412 >discovering That's true. You would often walk into an arcade and don't know what you're gonna play/find, the excitement of discovery was a major element of arcadya.

Why the fuck do old people love pinball so much? I want to go to an arcade and play some actual games but arcades in the US are like 70% pinball.
>>3303 In 30 years kids will be asking why are old people coming to arcades to play "video games".
>>3314 nooo
>>3303 were pinballs in arcades during the 80s and 90s?
I miss arcades but i also dont think they could have sustained themselves into modernity even had the current year not happened.
Last Friday. Went to Akihabara to play Taiko
>>3876 u in japan?
>>3877 That's where Akihabara is, isn't it anon?
>>683 I don't think there's any way to revive arcades, so it's lost media at this point to the generations who missed it.

>>3876 My dream just had me in a place in nippon shopping for shit, a couple of cute girls were there but I didn't make any moves in it since I am not a filthy seggs tourist.
>>4475 Take me back anons.
>>4506 ok but there is only one way to get there, hop on in...
>>4511 >mfw retarded meme is almost 10 years old It might actually be 10 years old, I remember when the ps4 was new, not like it was ever truly replaced in a sense.
>>4515 The diminishing returns of console generations hit progressively, when PS3/7th gen came out it already had way less games than before, some series didn't even get an installment. Then PS4/8th gen came out and it had no games to play other than Bloodborne. Now PS5/9th gen is on and it actually has 0 games while PS4 is still fully supported by the devs.
>>4505 What's the context here Anon?
>>4520 This was a protest against Chinese coming into Japan, that guy just ended up being caught in the middle.
>>4529 I suppose I could understand that protest, but why would 'Waito Piggu' be used against Chinese visitors?
>>4530 He's not chinese, anon.
>>4532 Yes, I understand. Thus my question.
>>4534 >Yes, I understand i don't think you do
arcades were so comfy, I wish i had an arcade cabinet
>>4475 Look at all those chads.

How can I find actual arcades? Everything that's actually advertised somewhere is shitty hipster bars with overpriced diluted cocktails and 2 or 3 cabinets at most. Every time I ended up somewhere with actually good games it was by accident. Do I just need to luck out into it?
>>7015 >How can I find actual arcades? You go to japan. There are no "actual arcades" left in the west. You can find actual arcade cabinets here and there, but they are usually in places where you don't want to be in.

the death of arcades as i knew them is something i'm still not able to come to terms with outside of JP, which even then still isn't doing too hot from what i've heard, the best arcades US (and maybe CA or EU? not sure) can scrounge up are comprised of shitty redemption games made to take up your time and provide zero actual fun aside from 'get big tickets', with very few actually enjoyable games made to just be played for fun what happened to all the good shit? the fighting games, the lightgun games, the unique racers, the beat-em-up's, the shmups, the rhythm games, the action puzzlers, hell even in terms of redemption games, the best they can do is 'remake mobile/webgame made for children'. at least back then there was original, actually enjoyable concepts and ideas. colorama, spider stompin, dunk-n-alien, all sorts of shit it just sucks. arcades are a lost cause from what i can tell, and the ones that still exist suck balls and aren't even worth going to, outside of a *very* small few, and even those can have their own niche of issues or maybe i'm just alone on this, who tf knows
