    Madonna was an interesting character but I always found a liking with Truth or Dare as the film was a good period correct of a memorable time.

    Dream Warriors had everything that, IMO, made for a great 80's horror. First, it wasn't overtly predictable. Second, the story was good. Third, it was "scary" for the time. Fourth, the soundtrack was...

    The relatively quick dismissal of the older Atari cabs was surprising. Centipede and Crystal Castles were good games but in a short few years those were tossed away like nothing in favor of games...

    Ends was forgettable but at least the finale had a few glimpses of hope. The flashbacks were the next best thing in the film.

    Right around '84 or '85 one of our "big" arcades was already putting the Atari cabs (from '82 and '83 and older) way in the back on the way to the bathrooms. I always thought Centipede, Crystal...

    Kmart had a fire sale for the HD DVD when the nail was in the coffin and sold them for $10.00. I should have purchased more than one.

    Absolutely it is different for each of us but I'm willing to bet you stayed away from the crappy games in favor of spending $$$$ on the better titles so it was more about specific quality, fun games...

    Harking back to something you said earlier, that layout worked for REAL arcades in the past. Is it cramped? That doesn't play as much, if any, of a role as the cabs. Ambiance is extremely important...

    In order for a retro arcade being successful it needs to mimic the feel and the sounds of a 70's or 80's establishment rather than being a half-assed attempt.

    In the long run it's just easier to pay a bit more from someone who will ship it out of country rather than relying on a go-between shipping service.

    Make friends with someone in the states who can be the go-between shipper rather than some flaky shipping service.

    The tried and true fall back to lacking originality is to use something that has already been done. Nothing can be done to outshine or even equal the meaning and impact of the original.
