You'd see guys standing on the side of machines and just dancing on the floor, practicing their steps while someone else played LOL. The social aspects of gaming are so different now. Kinda weird/sad to think that most teens now have no experience at all with stuff like local co op and local competitive gaming. 
Oh believe me, it's quieter these days compared to back in 2009, but people still go. Especially the rhythm games, those are quite popular. Drum Mania, Guitar Freaks, Taiko: Drum Master, DJMax Technika, Pop'n Music, DDR, In The Groove, and a game where you wave your hands around 4 infrared sensors whose name I don't know.

I absolutely suck at any rhythm games, whether it's Project Diva on the lowest difficulty, or Audio Surf. I also equally suck at arcade-style shooting games, as well as arcade 2D fighters. Smash Bros. is literally the only fighting game series that I'm pretty good at, if you consider it a fighter, in which there are cults for/against it being one. lol


Soooooooooo really arcade places are not my preferred location to go since I suck at all the games and they're thus a black hole for my wallet for buying tokens. Even if you go to an arcade place to try to earn tickets to exchange for prizes, those machines are programmed to be rigged sometimes. Notworthit.jpg

Oh yeah, the air hockey tables are still fun to play. : D

Similar to what happens to me when playing pool, the puck always seems to fly off the table whenever I play. lol
I don't even know how that happens when playing pool; I'll knock both the cue ball AND the ball the cue ball hits off the table. o.0

I did a quick test on one of my 6 year old AA eneloops, after a charge(1A)+discharge(0.5A) cycle it still had 1750mAh in it. I think these were rated at 1900mAh minimum when new. I have no idea how many cycles it's been through.

 

I'll run it through a few more cycles to see if the capacity recovers, I'm still very happy with their performance. 

 

I found a AAA eneloop still in the pack from 09/2011, discharging them now...

I've only done that when going for trick shots biggrin.gif I enjoy pool quite a bit.

Eneloop testing! Awesome!
