Arcade Question


New Member
in your opinion what games does an arcade NEED

....kuz i might be opening one soon and i need to know what is the general consensus on what games are 'musts'

so far ive got
3-4 Street Fighters
2 DDRs
1 co-op game
1-2 air hockey
1 Pac-man
1 Galaga
2 Maddens

the venue is relatively small so that right there covers about half the room, maybe a little bit more

so can you gimme any games that you think i should have?

I think the best games to have are multiplayer games and light gun shooter games. Nowadays home videogame systems are the top of the line when it comes to gaming so you don't want to stock up on games that are similar to current titles available on home systems.

I also think that if you have the room for it you should add laser tag. I have seen several arcades do this and it seems to be a money driver.

Are you going to have a restaurant area as well of is this strictly an arcade?


Trust me, I'm The Doctor.
The more co-op, the better. A block of racing games, and tons of gun shooter games.

I have no clue, considering I haven't been anywhere near a real arcade in years.
