for the older 'Baggers...remember classic arcades from the '80s?

and even more amazing is that they haven't unplugged it in 2 years to erase your high score
Har har. Nah, this arcade logs the high scores at the front desk and keeps them updated on the website and also scrolling off a projector onto the wall in a loop in alphabetical order by game with the score and players initials. It's really cool looking.
Some games retain high scores after shutdown (Paperboy does for example) but some don't

I use to rock the NASCAR Arcade game. Always had a high score, even on the eight-game one.
Daytona USA was the greatest most addicting racing game I ever saw circa 1994 when it came out. Me and my friends played it almost all afternoon when we went down to Seaside Heights one summer in one of the boardwalk arcades. I can still hear the seagulls, feel the sun and smell the salt in the air from the ocean whenever I hear the music.

That is some serious nerdiness and probably keeps from having a lot of bitch slap fights between the weenie arm players.

Saw a few mentions earlier about arcade museums. I went to the one in Daytona Beach, which was an old theater. And it was like, $25 for the day and you get to play anything in there. They had a larger collection of pinball machines...some that were pre 1950s and no digital screens, all analog. They then had tables with old TV sets and had a classic game system on each TV. Intellivison, Atari...and then some with the pirated 500 in 1 game NES game cartridge. They had a few rare systems on display and had a display of those ET cartridges that were dug out of that landfil a few years ago. They have a small bar with a bunch of Gameboys and Game Gears on the counter. And they would just play old music videos from the 80s on a big screen on the stage.

It was a crappy day, so we ended up going back there for a few hours and getting our money's worth.

I'll never forget going to Casino Pier in Seaside Heights when I was a kid. Riding the carousel and looking at myself in the "funny" mirrors. But they had a lot of those arcade games, all 25 cents. My favorite was Outrun...but I did like Hard Drivin because that was the most realistic. You even had to turn the key to start the car...so advanced...
