Dammit, we want you to tell us stuff! Stuff like whether arcade gaming is still relevant to you.
This isn’t some marketing survey or whatever. It’s an emotional investment in you. Yes, we’re interesting in knowing you, Kotaku reader person. You probably know enough about us — more than you even want to, we’re sure. But, hey, we’d like to know about you, too.
Anyway, here’s today’s question…
Do you still visit arcades? If so, what do you play? If not, why not?
Me? No, not me. My last arcade visit involved stumbling into some seedy and far too brightly lit gaming den in Melbourne when (a little bit) drunk and being challenged to a round of Street Fighter IV. In my teenage years, I used to love arcades, and would spend hours playing Double Dragon or Outrun or 1942 or Gauntlet. Back then the home consoles and computers couldn't compare to the visual spectacle of the best arcade games. Today that's clearly not the case. So yeah, I'm curious to hear why you still go, if you still do.
