Throwback photos from old video game arcades

Recommended Posts

I like those old pictures.

 

For extra pathos, add 35 years to everyone. I hope the beardy guy is happily retired and still playing the video games.

I always get a kick out of retro arcade photos. Now I wish I had taken some of my own pics when my buds and I hit every strip mall arcade we could bike ride to in

the early eighties.

I've definitely been to the pier 39 arcade in SF around that time, and I'm pretty sure I went to that same Chuck E. Cheese around the time of those photos too.

 

I had two "home" arcades through most of the 80's, one at the Morris County Mall and one at the Rockaway Mall in NJ. But I've never been able to find photos of either one. I can picture them both clearly in my head so I guess it's not strictly necessary, but I'd just love to see the actual game machines I know I played back then.

Love the photo of the guy with the mullet and wifebeater giving zero fucks while he plays Tempest surrounded by cigarette butts and filth.
