On Fridays I generally write some sort of post about gaming. But nothing I wrote this week could’ve held a candle to this amazing article over on The Verge. The article is called: For Amusement Only: the life and death of the American arcade. It’s lengthy, but it is a fantastic read. And for the average American attention span, there is an 8 minute video (embedded above, though not very reliable – go to The Verge and watch it) that is part of the article. A fantastic look back at the arcade industry, and a few theories as to why it’s so hard to find a good arcade these days. Enjoy the article.
