Before I get started about arcade gaming, I want to respond to a comment from my longest and most regular reader. Mom:
You’ve said you were going to blog every day before. How about committing to at least once a week? Then you could miss a day every now and then and not break your commitment.
I know better than to try to actually blog EVERY SINGLE DAY. What I really meant in that last post, is that I’m going to be more regular. 🙂
It’s Time To Let Go Of Arcade Gaming…
I was trying really hard to hold on to the AWESOME that was arcade gaming. It’s time to just let it go. I had fun last night, but… Gameworks obviously isn’t an arcade for gamers anymore. Like 90% of the games were shooters or some kind of driving simulation. They only had one DDR (Dance Dance Revolution) machine. The screen on the Marvel vs. Capcom machine they had was all jacked up and flickering… *sigh*
I understand that it’s ALL about console gaming now, but… There’s something AWESOME about gaming in large groups. Not just groups of your friends, but mixing it up with people you don’t know. Yes, you can do that online but… *meh* There’s another kind of energy that exists when you have a REAL crowd watching. I’m going to have to try harder to make an event like “Drink n’ Pwn” work.
