Favorite arcade, eh?? I have a few. Area 51 was cool when it came out. But my biggest favorite was Super Offroad. I used to play this one near the house I grew up in and managed to get to 16th place overall. Number two would be 1942.
Mortal Kombat 2
Alien 3 (the one with the big gun, with a trigger to shoot the generades)
Marvel Super Heroes Vs. Street Fighter
Street Fighter 3: 2nd Impact Giant Attack
Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike
House of the Dead 1 and 2
TMNT the Arcade game
Simpsons the Arcade Game
Street Fighter 2 Hyper Fighting
Oh okay. I thought it was arcade game too. Well the best place I have been to is Castles & Coasters in the Phoenix area. The arcade room is two stories tall, and seems to have about a thousand games. The company I work for buys out the park for one day for a company picnic. So the employees and families spend the day being gluttons with all the free food and drinks, play miniature golf, try to sink the bumper boats and smash around in the go-karts. hey, rubbin' is racin'!! And of course, spend most of the afternoon playing the arcade games like a bunch of 12 year olds.
The original Ms. PacMan is teh BEST Arcade game ever....closely followed by DDR and the original mortal kombat. I use to spend lots of money on those games...than I got bored with them...I'd love to play them again right now though...good times.
