Do you remember the old arcades?

In 1982, arcade video games were everywhere. Everyone was playing them, young and old alike, accountants, housewives and children. At the time, you could play a state-of-the-art computer game anywhere except at home: at Aladdin’s Castle in your mall, your local Chuck-E-Cheese or Showbiz Pizza Place, the corner 7-11 or even in the reception area of your dentist’s office. It was a $7 billion dollar a year industry, earned one quarter at a time, and it had emerged practically overnight. It disappeared just as quickly. By 1985, America was in the throes of a deep recession, the home gaming market had been glutted with inferior product, and many people stopped playing video games. Their novelty had run its course. The fad of the arcade ended and game rooms across the country shuttered. Game over!

But why did the arcades go away? And what happened to all of those games? Twenty five years later you can still occasionally find a classic arcade game “in the wild.” But when you do, more often than not, it’s a ghostly reminder (Inky, Blinky, Pinky or Clyde?) of its former glory; when you drop your quarter in the coin chute—assuming it doesn’t get stuck—you find the joystick no longer works or the monitor is out of adjustment, with decades of burn-in, caked in so much dust you can no longer make out any of the formerly colorful sprites. The artwork, too, has been ripped off or tagged with graffiti, abused by cigarette stains, decades’ worth of wear and tear. Someone experiencing a classic game in such condition for the first time may naturally be lead to wonder what was the big deal with these games anyway?
