    I was sitting around on friday, day off with not much to do {the WW2 site was offline!! :eek: } so I went to check out the arcade in the plaza, they have one of those new multi-game video arcades. It was like taking a trip down memory lane, back to the 80's when I used to waste my pocket money plugging quarters into the local machine!

    The best part was that this machine had a glitch, every time you croaked it gave you another credit. :twisted: :twisted:

    I must have played that sucker for hours....


    What games did everyone play way back when?

    yep, afterburner, had that one on my old AMIGA. That was some computer. I only sold it last year, about 18 years old and still worked like a dream.

    Frogger?

    Is that the same game depicted in a Sienfeld episode? George Kostanza had to get the game across the street with an auxiliary power supply, engineered by 'Slippery Pete' (Peter Stormare of 'Fargo' fame).

    Aarh man I can hardly remember the names of those games, but heck I hardly ever played such machines.

    I had a Nintendo 64 which I used to play all sorts of games on..

    Anyhow I was always more of an outdoors person.

    The local 7-11 store was our arcade till we were old enough to get to the Mall....

    Asteroids, Space Invaders and Dragons Lair were the ones we played in the early 80's....
