I had Splatterhouse for the TG-16 :)  Another great game!

 



I seriously get sad when thinking of the The Golden Age of Arcade Gaming.

So many good arcade hall memories. :(



Yeah, but they were also bloody expensive. I wasted a fortune in the arcades back in the day.



Never went to an arcade in the 80's since i was like...5 by the time that they ended. But in the 90's The Simpsons (the one where Maggie gets stolen) and X-Men were my favorite games to play. :)

I'm talking hardcore Arcade Halls here, with 50-100 different games, lot's of noise, lots of people. It was like a community. A 'community of gamers' taking a break from everyday life.

The tournaments , the competition, the snack food and soft drinks, all the bragging and joking among friends. Some arcades had pool tables and other things to do as well.
It was a cool place to hang out.

There are still some 'game centers' around these days, but it's just not the same.
