    1984 Arcade

    I was looking through the web for pictures of old arcades and found this virtual picture someone photoshopped. It's of an arcade as it would've looked in 1984. Check out the video wall in the back of the room:

    Eddie wouldn't sue a random photoshopper for using his likeness without his permission, right? Right....? Right......................?

    TRON was the shit! Berzerk and Pole Position, as well. Any love for Zaxxon?

    Jesus, does that picture take you back or what? Very cool.


    As soon as you saw that picture did you immediately hear that certain arcade sound and noise? I could totally feel the scene.

    Galaga, Joust, Pacman, centipede, space invaders...jeez...I could live in those old arcades...even up to around 1990 or so when some of the street fighter type games came out...they were never my favourite kind of game but I always enjoyed hanging out in arcades.

    Still do, but they're so damn expensive now-a-days. Freaking game costs a buck to play and it's over in 10 seconds.

    I was always a huge fan of plain old pin ball too!
    Stay out of it, dude.
