Arcades In The Movies

You see kids, back in the day, game companies took our money one quarter at a time for hours on end.

Michael J. Fox looked like he was about 10 in that one clip.

I don't think I want to admit how any of those movies I recognized.

lol @ Gayeld, same here.

things smelled better in the 80's.

Gayeld said...

Some of those actors certainly did.

hairydawg said...

Hulkster and Jean Claude most certainly.

I love Galaga. We have a joystick that plugs into the tv with Galaga, Space Invaders, Pac Man, and some car game.

OMG, JCVD looks SO YOUNG there!!!

I wish I had back all the quarters I pumped into Missile Command.

0:37 - Dragon Ninja & 0:43 Gryzor bring me good memories. It's late here, but I'm gonna burn the emulator tomorrow with them.

1:50 - Street Fighter sucked hard, it's surprising that Street Fighter 2 was so good. Another game I'm gonna leave my thumbs with tomorrow, the second one.

Yep, one coin at a time. It was great fun, all your friends around & all the fights .... Good times.
