  1. I have. I worked at the Hollywood Arcade in Ocean City, NJ from 2008 to 2015. Then afterwards, I started working at an arcade on Coney Island in Brooklyn. Hollywood Arcade was pretty nice. They had a Who Tommy pinball machine, and a nice offering of classics, even though there was a Class of 81 machine. Can't say the same for the Coney Island one. There's absolutely NO classics whatsoever save for Class of 81, and all it is is just newer shooting/racing/fighting crap, along with kiddie gambling- sorry, I mean redemption machines. No pinball either. I've been trying to quit my job and work at Yestercades in Red Bank, NJ or Go Play in Belmar, NJ. They have more classics than this Coney Island nonsense.
  2. I actually had this as a kid. What the hell?
  3. I forget the name, but it was in Brooklyn. It had all the classics and some oddities like Pac-Land. I do remember Aladdin's Castle. I also remember an arcade in the Nanuet Mall.
  4. F-14 Tomcat would later be the name of an amazing pinball game. I have it in the game room of my comic shop.
  5. I always thought it sounded Japanese, not Korean. Speaking of Koreans, have anyone listened to K-pop? Some of those artists are amazingly talented, like Blackpink.
  6. In 2002, I used to go to an arcade that had a PC game room. The arcade games there were DDR, Tekken, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat III, Daytona, Indy 500, Virtua Fighter, Fighting Vipers, The Ocean Hunter, and more. There were a lot of games like Starcraft in the PC game room. I used to talk with my nerdy friends there about stuff like Toonami and anime, Adult Swim, comic books, and more.
  7. Ah, TI-99 speech synthesis! My favorite use of it was in the board game "The Omega Virus." The computer sounds monotonous... while the virus sounds smug as hell! That virus guy from Toonami sounded WAY better than Omegsy.
  8. I remember that episode... I thought it was so funny they played a children's game. I remember those games from when I was 12, but it was at a friend's house and it was their little sister playing it.
  9. There was also the Atari Force, published by none other than DC Comics!
  10. I definitely remember that, but I had it on my wall in my room BITD.
  11. Fantastic Voyage. It's hi def. 😆
  12. I live in Brooklyn, and that game was in one of the arcades in the city. It was one of the "rarer" games we had.
  13. LOL, I remember that part of the manual (or was it the box?) Video game manuals were so tongue-in-cheek back in the day.
  14. I was around during that time, and I agree with you 100% on what it was like. 2020 is stupid compared to 1980!
