The Evolution of Arcades

March 9, 2017

In this episode, Jimmy and Glen (PAUL COULDN'T MAKE IT THIS WEEK) talk about the ever changing medium of video games and the transition of arcades to home consoles back to social gatherings. We talk about how our earliest memories of arcade gaming are cemented in our minds and how that helped shape our current feelings about arcade gaming. We disrespect air hockey manufacturers and praise old arcade reward systems. Overall, we talk a lot about how the decline of arcades in the early to mid 2000's was due to home-console use and that the shifting demographics of gamers led to the logical conclusion of Barcades and the like. Give us a listen!
