You own an arcade. What games do you put in it?


Recommended Posts

I think it's time to pay some respects to an industry that's barely still alive. We really shouldn't have to travel all the way to Chicago and visit Galloping Ghost just to play some arcade games.

Let's say you get the funding necessary to start your own arcade, and fill it up with some badass retro titles and other games that are currently being produced only for Japan, or one of several Dave & Busters in the US that are too few and far between. As per the norm, choose coin-op titles only. While there are many games you enjoy on the current market, the idea here is to make money.

My picks:


Metal Slug 1-6
Magic Sword
Elevator Action Returns
Shadow Dancer
Rampage: World Tour
Rampage 2018
