Arcades may be a dying breed, giving way to the evermore popular home gaming console, but many of us still remember with great wonder and nostalgia the awesomeness that was the arcade game. Whether it was pinball, or Space Invaders or Street Fighter, there was something special about plopping a quarter into the machine seeing how long you could last. What was your favourite arcade game?
There are a number of arcade games in the running for me. Tetris, Tekken, and Simon the Sorcerer Pinball are among my top three. I think the simplest games are the best because they endure and have a timeless quality about them.
