I went to Gameworks in Las Vegas last week, I only took a few pictures, but here they are. It's funny how after the chaos of the strip, I could go downstairs and sit in front of a candy cabinet in a loud arcade and feel like I'm in a totally familiar setting, it was nice :)

I was using a new camera though, it was pretty hard to get shots that weren't blurry :/

It looks like I got there just in time:

i guess they are moving off the strip in order to cater to locals more (a good thing).
I remember thinking that there's no way locals would spend much time there, because you have to deal with all the strip nonsense to get in and out.

Suweeet retro cabinets. If you need to find me, I'll be losing my money over there on Centipede.

They sure look nice don't they?
I thought the same thing.. the trackball was broken on Centipede so I moved to Ms. Pacman. I left the game in progress you know? Some teenagers came by and I swear to god they were freaking out that there was a game in progress and they didn't have to use one of their credits. Like yelling to their friends "OMG LOOK LOOK A FREE GAME!" It's hard to believe how cheap people are sometimes.
It's hard to tell from the pictures but those classic games are all minis.

Damn trackball! That's the problem... and has always been the problem with those types of games: lack of qualified trackball technician's in the workforce. Why I believe if a fella could learn how to fix those and was willing to travel, why he'd have good work for years to come.
