Centipede Arcade Art by Sean Hartter

Some arcade art just sticks with you even years after you have played the game and Centipede had some of the best arcade art ever stuck to the side of an electronic game.

    Some of the most attractive artwork side panel arcade machines from the 80s were: Centipede, Phoenix, Dragon’s Lair, Pacman, Space Invaders, Circus Charlie, Burger Time, and Tempest just to name a few. I think in general Atari, Nintendo, Sega, Taito & Midway really did an amazing job of making sure their arcade games stood out from the rest! Now if we talk about architecture that’s a whole different ball game!

  2. A great list Pyrofenix, I can still remember the first time I spotted most of them or when the crowd around the game was so large I was forced to stand on the side of the game and I would just stare at the art while attempt to move to a better spot.
