"RIP my Local Arcade at the Mall"


          

it was a sad sad evening. chopped it up with a Bro Man about who was better between Ali and tyson and also Pryor and Eddie

real talks
and then looking over at the arcade because I had some quarters and already to get my play on
and then it was closed.
\\\


the gate was down and it was a empty building. my eyes was sad.

this cat working at teavanna felt the same way about the end of the arcade because i was like NO, it can't be.

good thing i had my LG and Brian Mcknight's"s show you how it works" was playing to bring some smile
despite the saddness.,

who else had arcade blues when it was no more?

my ex's nephews always got huge eyes when i took them to the arcade down here. we'd shoot pirates and ride bumper cars and run through the dumb little obstacle course. it was always a fun, strangely overpriced day that left the kids exhausted but still begging to go back and play another 10 bucks worth of games. i would fuck up some pop-a-shot (nine outta the ten best scores on the machine including the top five lol) so they'd actually have some tickets for whatever dinky ass prizes they wanted.

it was like a time warp, because this arcade mostly had shit from the '90s and of course as a grown man you can seldom enjoy stupid shit like this.

earlier this year they closed the arcade and moved all the games/equipment to another location in another city. we heard about it and made sure to go and stay til closing one night.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

You're lucky you had one for so long. The good news is there's an arcade underground that seems to popping up. Arcade cabinets are really a piece of game and computer history and being that they are a limited resource-- I think you will see them survive just in smaller numbers and through avenues different than the local arcade.

When I was a teen, we could have a few bucks in our pocket and hit the bowling alley, the arcade, or the dollar theater just to get out of the house and kick it.

Now, you can't pry them out of the house, and if you do, all the little cheap break-off places have been replaced by entertainment megajoints like Dave & Busters, Stars & Stripes, LaserQuest...etc., that are designed to hit those pockets HARD

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Whether it was the big arcades with the pinball machines way in the back, or the grimy hood corner stores and take out food spots, them shits were the shit. Street Fighter, Mario Bros, Ms Pac Man, Berzerk, good times. Dragon's Lair blew my mind. TWO quarters, but fuck it.

X-Box and Playstation are cool, but it ain't the same as a big ass coin-op machine in an arcade.

And there were always shady characters lurking about. And some delinquent little punk trying to weasel his way into your game "You can't beat that boss, let me beat him for you"

Get your ass outta here, youngin'. This is MY quarter, my game.

I was disappointed to find that the machines are really shabbily maintained, some are totally unplayable. I haven't been back in years though.

In response to Reply # 15


  

          

like i remember as a kid i would always go to this store where they had one on display and wonder what it would be like to own this console that cost damn near as much as arcade game. i think they ranged from $700-$1500 depending which model you got.

i wonder if today they are worthless or even more expensive because they were not very many of them and of course now 20+ years on a lot of the ones that existed no longer work.

either way i never thought it was *that* much better than like genesis and playstation 1. but it was pretty cool. you could also save your games and play them in the arcade, which was kind of pointless but sounded cool to my pubescent ears.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

$5 at the arcade in Wildwood, NJ made you a rich man. My dad would give me and my brother loot and just turn us loose. Heaven, Berzerk, Carnival, Asteroids, Phoenix, Tron, the list goes on and on.

There used to be a crew of 5 of us that would head there every week and play whatever version of Street Fighter II or Street Fighter Alpha was out. We would have to fight whoever was on the machine to get them off so we could fight among ourselves. We would watch whoever was playing for one round than argue who would get the chance to take him down.

Online play if fun and all, but there's nothing like being right next to your opponent. You can use a cheesy move online now without recompense but that could get you punched in the arcade. Man I mess those days

mainly 'cause that's usually where we stay when we're there. My kids LOVE going to the arcade and I still get warm fuzzies when I walk into one.

... and I STILL kick people's asses on SFII, MK/MK2, and Samurai Showdown.

Nothing quite like literally sitting down at a head to head street fighter cabinet and having a dude in a business suit take a seat on the other side, put down his briefcase, and proceed to open a full can of asskick on you.

Yeah... I've done that before. stop off somewhere after work, they got that SFII Hyper Fighting cabinet in the corner with a few kids on it. I walk up, put my quarter on the marquee and wait. My turn comes and I annihilate all comers with Dhalsim just for grins and giggles then give one of the kids my game 'cause I gotta head down the road.

Yutes these days don't realize cats my age have 30+ years of playing vidya.

Was in the arcade earlier today. Just got turned onto these crazy coin games. SUPER addictive!

But I know exactly what you mean when playing some cat on the other side and you can't see his face until you beat him and he gets up to walk away. Greatness.

I think it may be. We passed by it two or three years ago and it looked like it still had games but maybe a smaller selection.

29. "WTF...the arcade at our mall called Del Amo closed in maybe 99?"

At latest, 2001...but feels like 98-99. It was riiiight next to a Sam Goody.....so perfect.

The one at Fox Hills closed sometime in the early or mid 90's.

A pretty sweet barcade just opened right near me, though. Me and my bro took 2nd place in their first 2v2 NBA Jam tournament.

39. "I can emphasize, my local mall had arcade AND theater shut down :("
In response to Reply # 0


          

Shit is more like a glorified strip mall at this point, just a bunch of empty spaces, a no-name taking anchor store space, and a Target you have to walk outside the damn mall to access.

Think a nigga is gonna have to find a way to recreate a arcade at home for the day I have kids n shit.
