    Man.....I remember when me and my boys use to always go to the arcades and spend like 20 dollars worth of quarters havin fun playin the newest games with the best graphics on them....now a dayz u can get that at the crib...lol I mean conversions of arcade games have always been done, but remember playin street fighter 2 or tekken on the arcade then playing the console versions, theres a big difference...and other games at the arcades like Daytona USA, where u could play up to 8 different racers at once was fun, but now the incentive is gone because now we can take just about any game online and play with twice that amount..now that I think of it, I can't even remember the last time I went to the arcades......but who misses it....

    Yep, we had a place called Diamond Gems at the mall and me and my boys would always catch a ride with one of our moms and spend all day up there. There was this one tank game, I cant remember the name but 3-4 people sat in the separate seats and you controlled your tanks and battled each other. Best times ever

    I dont think I ever spent more than $5... I stopped playing at the arcades around the time NFL Blitz came out...

    BUT... I stayed at this hotel last year with an arcade and I spent a bunch of money on some classics like Ms. Pacman and The Simpsons.

    Me and my homeboy stopped at a local arcade after work one day, about two weeks ago. There was a big group of guys around the Tekken 5 machine, which got me excited, until i saw that the two guys competing were sitting down using controllers that they brought from home. Me and my boy looked at each other like "what the fuck!?!"...

    I got upset and we mosied on back to Marvel vs. Capcom 2.

    CONTROLLERS!?! In an arcade!?! What has this shit come too?
