What Arcade Rooms Looked Like in the 80s

Published by at 8:00 am under Images

Here at Unreality I consider myself to be the old school guy and Paul to be the new school guy.  I always get nostalgic for the old days of gaming whereas Paul is up on the current trends and so forth.

But for all you old school kids this gallery is a treat.  Remember games like Pole Position and Galaga?  Remember pumping quarters into machines but still having money for lunch?

Remember the 80s?   Ah I wish I were back there right now!  Check out this gallery of Arcades in the 80s……

Pole Position!  I know most of you are too young but this was the best game ever.

    There’s a lot of chicks in there. I find that most surprising.

    Even-though I was born in the 70′s I’m a second generation gamer. My parents owned a poolhall when I was little and they were awesome at Ms. Pacman and Centipede. I got my start with Galaga. I had to use a milkcrate to reach though.

    What’s amazing to me is how thin everyone is in the pictures. Americans have gotten so fat over the past 30 years.

    There are still places like that in England. Come to think of it most sea side towns still have a lot of these games in them.

    I spent my childhood there.

    I was born in 74 so I totally remember the 80′s. It was my era and looking at these pics brought back many memories.

    I lived for Arcades. I could spend hours losing myself in a game. Oh the nostalgia. Wish I could go back.
