Game Works is still a thing? Man, I just get so weirded out when I see arcade machines now. It's sort of weirdly melancholy since they're mostly vacant. I used to spend so much time in arcades as a youth playing stuff like X-menvSF/MSvSF, MvC, HotD, DDR and the like. God especially DDR. That was like like a lightning in a bottle moment in SoCal. 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.
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
