we went from a ghost squad to a target terror. Target terror is a "anti-terrorist" game where all the "Terrorists" are white, and plays like Area-51 meets Tim and Eric Awesome Show.

Seriously thogh /v/, why is it there is no market for arcades here, but there is in japan?

We have a mega billion dollar industry in the states, with huge events for gamers and cons that sport thousands of attendants. Hundreds of thousands of people here watch people play video games for fun on youtube.

Why wouldn't they go to arcades? Is it our cities? Is it that everyone drives everywhere, so the arcade is extra expensive? Is it just that everyone is a filthy casual who can't stand spending money on getting gud? Why are the Japanese capable of this masochism?

There were never any arcades near where I lived. But it didn't matter anyway, my family was poor so I knew it would be unwise to waste money on arcade games. When I saved up enough to finally buy a game, I made sure it was worth the money and I would get my time out of it.

That's mostly why I stopped going to mine. It's part of a tourist site, and shit just stays inoperable for months, since most people who go through there don't really care/notice if something is broken. The repair lady got mad at me and my friend when we told her the Technika machine was broken. It used to have a decent scene where every weekend we had a group that would get together and play CvS2 and Tekken 5 but everyone just kinda got fed up with it.

There's no market because people in japan are willing to play IIDX for months before passing a song. People over here want to win that card in stacker RIGHT NOW then leave.

So pathetic.

I'm just bummed. I like the Japanese method of playing arcades, just playing until you get gud enough to get as much time as you want out of your credits. It keeps the places alive and bustling, and it encourages the creation of good new arcade games because all of the patrons are skilled gamers.

Every arcade in the 80's was like this. Of course this was back when shooters were 90% of the machines and generally fostered violent customers.

>>260697114
You won't find a self sustaining arcade nowadays and even the most popular ones need shit like kickstarter to stay afloat.. The business model is way to out of date. Why go to an arcade when you can just get a console. The only types of arcades that can exist now are "barcades" where you can just be in a drunken stupor while playing beat em up games.

>>260701325
Nah, you'd be surprised it was gangs or mobs that controlled most arcades. The gamling/money income of it was very popular for shady organizations, and there were counties or states that wanted all arcade zones banned because of the culture.

Back then you'd mostly find one or two machines in a diner or barber shop and that's where you'd get some peaceful vidya.

around the 90s things subdued, and places became more family friendly like Peter Piper Pizza or Chuck E Cheese.

There aren't fights breaking out between the salarymen in Japan playing arcades. That is just because America is a violent shithole in which half of the people living in the cities are spontaneously criminal.

There is a huge difference in cultures. Arcade games where a place where blue collar workers would go to pass the time in America during the boom of arcade games.

Shitbong here

Last time we had an arcade in my city (just a few miles out of London) was like 1997 or 1998. The 5th gen was like digging the grave, the 6th gen was hammering the last few nails shut on the coffin of the arcade era.
Used to regularly into 2d-fighting (various iterations of Street Fighter and Marvel) and racing (Daytona and Sega Rally).

Sad that those days had to end. I sometimes dream of moving to somewhere like Japan or Korea where I can rejoin that scene.

I can confirm this. 8-balls fucking love arcades. They will ONLY play basketball if they find out you have it though. That said, they're here to have a good time, not cause trouble 999 times out of 1000. I've had trouble with 1 8-ball, and it's because i yelled at his kid not to shake the coin pusher machine. He wanted to hit me till i pulled out a baseball bat from under the counter. Then he walked off screaming honkey this cracka-ass cracka that. In the 5 years i've been here, that's the only 8-ball problem i've had other than littering. Good lord does tyrone love to litter.

Could that change now? It seems the culture would have changed by now. Blue collar workers clearly don't care about arcades anymore, they all died off.

But then again, I guess white collar workers don't give a shit about arcades either, and a big chunk of the arcade user base in japan are salarymen.

Yeah.
Other is those sound voltex arcades.
To play arcade rip on PC you need endless analog input devices, that is knubs that do not end tracking to any point, they will spin or go endlessly to two different ways. That is hard to come by as windows compatible input device over 1000hz USB.

Well NOW they have 500usd controller out for that. Other is to have pivot monitor optimally.


And yeah the konami games are very ruthless. Starting out IIDX is not easy, not for anyone. Nobody can do it right the very first try not even in very easiest you will need some hours with the game to really get hang of hand coordination for it.

Good thing is that then it translates very well to pop'n music and so on as well.

I live about 15 minutes from the seaside, so theres a bunch of Arcades in a long line down there.

Not that theres anything worth while to play anymore.

I have a memory of playing The Simpsons Arcade Game down there with some of my older family members when i was about 6 and being really pissed i had to play as Lisa.

Theres still an Outrun 2 machine there which is probably my most played arcade machine up to a point were me and a friend had the majority of the high scores for all the routes on Outrun mode, but now one of the screen has become blurry and one of the seats wont slide back to fit my long ass legs.

I did notice one arcade has a Mario Kart GP machine now, i don't know which one but i haven't been able to give it a try yet.

thats pretty much why owners dont want food in their arcades - people don't care if they fuck shit up and the owner has to clean up everything.

At my local Dave and Busters they have this game. It's pretty damn fun, though it's so different from console Mario Kart that it isn't even funny. You get a random roll at the beginning to determine your kart and the 3 items you can use throughout the match, which will randomly be chosen when you hit a block.

Lots of fun, just a bit strange. They also have a bunch of the house of the deads there as well, even though one 3's shotguns is broken.

We had some kind of plumbing box from the Starbucks upstairs rupture and leak old drinks onto our carpet for about a month straight. I guess the sink or something ran through it and when they poured out milk and shit it would collect in that.

Also, for all those people that are hurting for an arcade near them but there aren't any, you should really get into pinball. Not exactly the same thing, but if you're looking for a quarter eater then that's the way to go. Got your highschools, flashing lights, and it's pretty skill based.

Every day the place uploads gameplay of fighting games onto youtube. I wish I wasn't too much of a poorfag to not own a car. I'm not good at being social and I end up hyping too much when things happen. If I looked better I'd try to do casting for games.

This, plus the fact that you can always find a pinball machine at a bar somewhere is great. Takes some skill too, so those highscores are properly earned.

Does pinball discussion belong here or on /tg/? I got a feeling that either way would work

>>260709845

I'm not too far from PAPA (Professional Amateur Pinball Association) in Pittsburgh. Christ the variety was staggering and all I wanted to play were so 70s machines and an absurdly small Super Mario World pinball machine i remember seeing in NJ as a kid. Probably the same one for all i know.

the only thing remotely close to an arcade where I live is with some local go karting place, but the machines are set where even if you win you still have to feed credits. Some of their racing games are fun though.

I managed to track down some theater or something that has an original R-Type machine so I'll go down there sometime to get a highscore.

Los Angeles fag here.

There's 3 arcades that I know of here but non really motivate me to go.

The first one is at Santa Monica Pier, that arcade charges anywhere from 50 cents to 75 cents to a dollar to play shitty broken arcade cabinets. It's mostly just a scam to get tourist money.

The second one is in downtown LA on Broadway, in a run down building called Sassony Arcade. It's actually decent but all the rail shooter games are not calibrated. Lots of gang members go there to play pool, and all the mexicans hog the fighting gams.

The Third one is called Family Arcade, it's on vermont, it's okay I guess, It's kinda ghetto, lot of the cabinets have sticky buttons, grafftiti on the screens, and a lot of gang members.

So eh, I'd like to spend my weekends going to them but there aren't even that many or at least any decent ones.

There use to be an arcade in my area called Video West Arcade, it was actually a pretty good arcade but they got closed down and it turned into some pop art museum. Kinda gay really. Here in glendale.

So yeah, no.
>>
The only good place to really have arcades open is in tourist areas that see lots of traffic daily

People drop their little shits off with money to the arcade while they shop and you're pretty much always filled

There was a pizza place near me that had tekken, pacman, and time crisis but it is now a flower shop and the only other place I can think of that has an arcade is hershey park but I don't want to pay to get in there just to go to the arcade. I also don't know how good it is now.

because the arcade owners in my country are jews, that's why most of them closed.

They lowered the 'lives' on shooting games and increased the cost on most of them. you can buy a good quality drink or a huge 3L cheap brand drink with 1 play

Seriously though if you're in the area check out Disney Quest. It's like 5 floors of games all on free play once you get in including these weird co-op interactive ride ones.
It's a pretty big collection as well, when I was there there was Dragons Lair, like 8 of the Mario Kart machines and H20 Overdrive. For $35 bucks its worth a go, unless it's full of fruit ninja shit now.
