If you missed part 1 the Video Game post from Monday click HERE There was so much to take in during the Arcade Expo press event that it was too much to do one huge post.
UPDATED 1/7/14 Part 2 that covers the Pinball Machines is now posted HERE I was fortunate enough today to get an early look at the Arcade Expo in Banning California that will be held on January 16-18 2015.
Last week was the fall get together for the SC3 (Southern California Classic Collectors) group that is dedicated to preserving and sharing classic home and arcade games for members to enjoy and play.
I am always on the lookout for arcades. There are so few around now that going to one is like taking a step back in time to when I visited local Los Angeles and Orange County arcades in the 1980’s and 1990’s before the implosion of the market in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s.
UPDATED: (4/30/14) I have been back to The Last Arcade on the Planet twice from when this original story was written and Juan has done a great job of fixing the minor issues that I had with some of the machines and he has added a few new games to the mix.
On the eve of the next generation of video game systems PS4 and XBox One, I find it ironic that you can talk to most video gamers and at some point you almost always start talking about playing games on older systems.
