Soooo happy to have moved to a city that actually has a good arcade culture. Here in Chicago there has been TWO Barcades that have opened this year; Emporium, and most recently Headquarters. They both are heavy emphasis on 80's machines and HQ even has all the games set to freeplay. We also have a great record store called Logan Hardware with an awesome arcade room in the back with all the games fully restored in amazing condition by the owner. The games here are free play as well they just suggest that you buy something from the shop. This is usually my go to spot as they have several pins and do a great job of keeping the games working in full order, not to mention as much as I love and appreciate the barcades, it gets loud in there with music and everything so it's almost impossible to hear the sounds of the arcade machines, so that's another great reason why Logan Hardware rules.
I have yet to venture out to the suburbs, but that's next on my list, Galloping Ghost ($15 to get in, and all games set to free-play) !
In the early eighties, the Jaguar was noted for having the most attractive and advanced looking video game package in its day and the competitors had nothing like it. Its life though, as a game product was destined, then being discovered as not in use, it later came back to life as a new package for an intraoral dental camera system called the HotRod from Imagin Systems Corp.
