Arcade Games in The House

Now, there is nothing cooler than being able to play one of your most favorite arcade games without having to dump a buck in a machine every time you die.

My friends got me a Playstation version of the video game Time Crisis 3 with the light guns, so I'm now wasting hours of my day in front of my TV with this little plastic gun blasting away at army guys.

And, if I want some real arcade goodness, the SpaceJam pinball machine in the basement does the job. My dad still owns me in that though since that was his favorite game, next to chess, when he was a kid. I can beat him in chess handily though.

Last year I got him a very nice chess set, and we played a game together while everyone was watching. I won mainly because I'm known to be mistake prone if I'm not paying attention, and he forgot that I'm a crafty bastard. That day not only was I paying attention, but I was seated off-center from the chess board so I could better figure out the whole picture. I was working on checkmating him, and in the process got my bishop in harm's way. I realized I could lose the bishop and win the game, or move the bishop and maybe win the game later. I didn't move the bishop. So he was asking me "are you sure you want to do that?" since he thought I wasn't paying attention. I just grinned and said sure. So he takes the bishop and I checkmated him immediately thereafter and left for the kitchen while he looked at the chessboard in disbelief.

Wow, that was a lot longer of a post than I intended. Well it's a fun story anyway.

Have a game-filled fun day!

I get more excited about arcade game compilations than I do about the newer games. I like the Capcom Collection. Great stuff on there. I also like the Namco Museum games. Great stuff on there. I wish someone could buy the rights to the Exidy and the Data East libraries, coz there are games I wanna play again.

Come into my realm! You aren't afraid...are you?
