Greedy landlords and the advent of arcade-quality consoles like the PS1 will do that.

There history there. Plus they have Super Turbo and Thirdstrike Cabinets. Can't find those anywhere. There are usually gatherings every friday and saturday.

Is there a market for a modern arcade? Is it possible to be profitable? Is it quitessential to have skeeball ddr and wackamole? If yes to all then this could be a good idea to include in a bar or something. I tried to go to EXP on pender the other day and there was a 30 minute wait. I seen a few arcade games and realized this town lacks colorful nerdy drinking spots. Would any of you go to an arcade pub?

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

OH FUCK YOU OH OH OOOOH~

they dont even have an ST machine even after i begged the owner to buy my CPS2 for 100 dollars.

If they got a third strike or a ST cabinet, I'd be there every weekend.

It's 100% in my mind a grow up underneath there.

Never. Arcades compete with Casinos apparently.

There used to be a bunch of Johnny Zees in Victoria but they have dissapeared. The closest we get here is a few arcade games in movie theatres.

One day I will own Daytona USA side by side sit down units!! Love that game.
