The Last Arcade Game You Played........

Post by bonerlaw » Fri Mar 07, 2008 3:04 pm

In an actual arcade??

I used to love going to my local arcade and spending a few quid, but I think those days dont exist now......what was the last game anyone played in an arcade??

Cant for the life of me think what it was, I think it may have been that Horse Riding game (oh the shame) where you had to control the motion yourself. Played it with my wife at Meadowhall, Sheffield.

We think Gunblade, maybe a year or two ago. Passed through a few arcades, but rarely anything grabs our attention enough to play.

We think Pac-Man, as part of the Namco Classics thing (original version of course), about 100 times back in 1997.

I'd weld myself to an Outrun 2 cab if I ever saw one though...

Me and my 2 year old son played on Sega Rally.......didn`t actually put money in......he thought it was great anyway!

The last arcade I actually played was soma sort of bowling game.....dunno what it was called but you just spin the track ball.

We think one of those dance machines with the arrows. We thought it was good fun but our friend was better than we were.

I think I played House of the Dead III last. I didn't realize how rusty I was at those type of games though because I don't think I lasted for fifteen minutes. :oops:

I was wondering what that jungle game was called. I remember playing it once and liking it but I never knew its name.

It was either Metal Slug 2 or House of the Dead 2 and that was AGES ago. I have been playing plenty of Ninja Gaiden and Super C on my Playchoice cab this week, but my place isn't an arcade. Yet.
