« on: 30 January, 2020, 08:11:51 »
A recently found clip on youtube .an absolute gem to behold and exactly how I remember  how real arcades were back in the 80s .I know it's mainly vid games on show but just listen to all those great sounds which could be heard all around the arcade and probably from the street too .galaxians /mr do /defender/battlezone and star wars can all be heard .there s a sys 80 golden steppa in some of the shots and one arm pullers too .

Cannot beat the sounds in those arcades.
Some dodgy dealing going on in there?
I'd love to create similar sounds in my games room
if I can get more than 3 to play along with me  on my lot lol😁

Brilliant to see.

So many upright video cabinets around back in the day then they just seemed to vanished.

Been seriously considering buying a 1uparcade machine or two. I doubt theyíll be quite as good as the real thing but the size and weight are advantages plus the reliability issues are a plus.
