Yearly visit to Arcadia in Ryde (pics of classics attached)

Glad to see that all from last year are still there, sorry some are blurry!!

If you're ever on the Isle of Wight be sure to visit, you really can't beat playing these in their natural habitat, MAME is great but it's not the real thing

Still there after all these years! I've been to arcadia many times, but not since 2011. It's great to see most of the machines are still there, and part of me wishes I could get back down there and play them again.

my only complaint would be it's not dark enough or smoky in there to really get the old feel of an arcade

that and the lack of a sticky carpet and dodgy looking adults who shouldn't really be there

I'm sure I can remember a dodgy old guy in there a few years back. Maybe he was the owner :mrgreen: But yeah, I know what you mean: nobody in a shiny tracksuit smoking a big cigar to be seen!

If I had a choice of any arcade cab I could have? It would be a 6 button Supreme Video one, they are by far the best I remember playing my fave games on
