Your fav Arcade games, not PC or Console.

Outrun for me, spent many hours and pounds on this as a youngster, hanging around the local arcade place in the shopping centre lol.

    Asteroids.
    I remember "playing" it in a "posh hotel" I went to as a kid.
    I say "playing", as I couldn't tell the difference between what happened on the screen after I put a 10p in, and just pressing the buttons while it played a demo.

    I worked in a skate shop which had the arcade game in it. I remember playing it once and someone nicking some clothes and making off with them but I was too engrossed in the game to notice at the time!!

    haha!  When i saw the title of the thread this is what I was going to put down!  Brilliant!

    I was at a holiday park when i was about 12 and a couple of the older kids put one straw into another and fed it down a crack in the joystick panel, - tap some metal thing and get as many credits as you like

    great game!
