If you want to open an arcade center, what games would you include?


Recommended Posts

Let's not put profit into consideration, otherwise many older games would not be profitable anymore.

 

Since the total number of machines that a room can fit is limited, would you place more than one game in a series? Such as having more than one KOF games? Or even more than one machine loaded with the same game?

 

Would you have a balanced number of lightgun/driving/joystick+buttons games?

 

Balanced number of different genres such as Shumps and Beatemups?

 

I'm just interested to see what everyone's tastes are.

ALRIGHT! I like this question. Suffice to say Arcades are dead... I have a badass one nearby, had ashtrays bolted to the side of the cabinets, they sell cups of beer, and have 50 cent hotdogs... but they do so poorly now, they dont get anything! I still have yet to play the new Tekken.

 

Well Ill set up the invirons. Lets say I have beer and hotdogs, and you can smoke... just like my arcade here. Ok.

 

Id have a few (top notch) pinball games. Probably no more than 3. Id have an air hockey table. Screw DDR. 1 Ultracade cabinet. (basically 50 or so old ass games in the ultracade cabinet) Ok id have 2 4 slot Neo Geo cabinets. Games for them... cant decide... 2 Tekken 6's, Zero Gunner, Darius Gaiden, 2 F Zero's linked, Area 51 or equivelent. a 4 player Dungeons & Dragons 2, Hmm I'll add more, or decide the neo geo games later...

Yeah, there is also one downtown in my city, I don't know how they can stay in business. There were two, one closed a few years ago.

the arcade I grew up next to was like that, they sold hotdogs and nachos.

I'd have pool, air hockey, and foose ball. a few pinball machines, 2 or 3 four slot neo geo cabs. load em up with metal slug and SNK fighters. a nice mix of beat em ups, and shooters. a few mame cabs for the older stuff. the newest fighters would have to have 2 to 4 cabs each, set up for tournament play. I'd slap a old style juke box in there and some big screens. have football on sundays, ufc events, boxing whatever.

it's really too bad that the arcade is dead in most of the world.

Yea Raq and Gavin are really feeling me on arcade games. Or rather Im totally feeling their pics. Id think that we 3 would have the best arcade ever. Which means Id need to serve Hamburgers, steak and cheeses, nachoes to seal the deal.

Nah, you all fail. There's no classics in your lists except for DD in Gavin's. (And maybe Ghosts and Goblins.......sort of)

 

You're in Florida right? I'm pretty sure there's a "museum" of sorts there (Or maybe it's in CA)
