The Death Of The Arcade

Do you miss going to the arcade with your friends and blowing your allowance?

In Springfield, MO downtown there is a place called 1984 which is an all day arcade. They have a snackbar and about 50 old arcade games (I got the Star Wars flight simulators) that you can play all day and half the night for 5 bucks.

I've had great fun at Dave and Buster's but it wasn't like the old days. I love my home console but for years I'd missed the sounds of the arcade. Anyone else in the same boat?

You can thank mobiles for that. People like being independent of people and yet in touch of them at the same time through their apps. Arcades use to be a center place to hang out, now even hanging out at the mall is something to be recorded in history.

I think the social aspect has evolved. I have had very good friendships and exchanges in guilds when playing online games. It depends on whether the game encourages this or makes it easy to join up with random strangers. I don’t think virtual friendships are any less fulfilling when you spend tons of time together and slowly get to know one another.

I use to spend my entire Sunday playing at the arcades.
Actually I do not miss it as much as I would think I would since the smart phone replacement / home computer ROM consoles can totally replace the experience.
Nowadays, kids meet up together and sit next to each other; each holding a smart phone and playing the same game. I would say this is quite close so the same like in the arcade.
If already, birth of the smart phone killed the outdoor activities for the kids.
