Arcade Cabinets

This week's Trivia

Arcade Cabinets

Sure, every household nowadays has one game console, if not more. But in the long lost days of yore, gamers had to find the nearest arcade, which we assault with a fistful of quarters, loudly proclaiming "NEXT!" by placing the shiny coin up next to the monitor. Alas, this practice is rarely seen, as bowling alleys and movie theaters are the final haven for arcade cabinets. Yet, they will always hold aplace in our hearts, as they were the seeds planted for a lifelong love of video games.
