Any recommended arcades in London

Looking to do something fun for my birthday and I was hoping that there are still some decent sized arcades in or around London, any ideas?

Thanks

The Bourne Conspiracy, I'm willing to believe that this title didn't even register on most peoples radars but in spite of that it received decent reviews and is frankly a fantastic title.

Not your typical film license fare.

28" Sony CRT for me mainly because anything I put through my LCD that pre-dates last gen is gonna look like trash.

I'd say that either the PSX or 360 versions are the best.

Change the screen resolution in your 360 settings to 640x480 before you play the game and voila full screen :D

I think it's fair to say there is as you just need to look as Xbox Live's list of most downloaded and played games at the moment and I believe this is only the beginning as those money grubbing marketing experts will soon get a whiff of that new pool of money and want in.

I can usually see why people enjoy internet fads even when I don't like them myself but to me this Zero Punctuation stuff is just crap :?

I think perhaps a more accurrate statement would be that the cel shading used in Wind Waker was an unpolpular decision among fans, the game was a great addition to the series but after the infamous... *falls asleep* Gamecube... *yawns* trailer... realistic... meh I think we should compile a list of ...

Still playing The Club and SSF2THD Remix at the moment and having a ton of fun with both of them but those games and life itself at the moment are just things that are passing the time until Street Fighter IV!!! :D :D :D

For me I find that cinematic masterpieces like the beginning of MGS 4 or something like that are a whole different kettle of fish to your old school "in a nutshell" type attracts and as such my choices are as follows. Resident Evil 2 Tekken 2 That Tekken 2 intro is brilliant and the music is just a ...

I love the Streets of Rage games and Final Fight is still a great game in it's own right (although it's mostly cos it's got Street Fighter characters and giant sprites and you know it!) but Super Double Dragon is hands down the best side scrolling beat em up ever!

I've been playing The Club on the 360 and it's a really enjoyable and original 3rd person shooter from Sega, it might not look like much but in spite of not having a typica campaign mode the gameplay of kill combos more than makes up for it... uber! Also Soldner on PS3 but I imagine everyone here kn...

My Snes with my entire collection of games in 1995 for a few measly Playstation games :(

I've never really made a mistake and sold something really valuable for nothing though so I suppose that's good.

No mention of Halo 2?

Rainbow Six Vegas did a great job of this as well...
