I am glad to see this. As someone who grew up in the golden era of arcades, I can say wholeheartedly, that they are an evil hive of scum. $.75 to play Dragon's Lair (Canadian prices in the mid-80's), to $4 for a single play of Rush: Alcatraz Edition (Canadian prices in the mid-90's), or $1 for a game of SF Alpha 2 (Canadian prices just two weeks ago); these are awful prices that can only be described as a rip-off. If that is what needs to be charged for an Arcade to make a profit then good riddance, I hope they all go under.
As someone else who grew up in the golden era of arcades, Imma drop a double dose of honesty up in here. The majority of the people in these arcades throughout the eras were mostly shit too and the day that the games in our house became better than the games in the arcades... well, it was straight up fuck the arcades.
That being said... I think there's a solid niche there that one could do right if they did it right.
