Listen to the Sweet Sounds of Classic Arcade Games

video games cassette

From 1982 – 1988, two friends recorded their arcade gaming experiences up and down the east coast of the United States with a Sony TCS-310 Stereo Cassette Recorder. Happily the tapes stayed remarkably preserved and over 10 years ago the arduous digitization process began. Now all these sweet sounds are availble for your listening pleasure at Listen online to games like Jungle King and Donkey Kong or order a complete collection of mp3s for your own personal collection. The tapes sound great and the banter between to the 2 kids is gold. It is ambient arcade heaven.

    I love that site. It perfectly captures the excitement and feel of an 80’s arcade. I could listen to these recordings for hours. It instantly transports me back to my favorite arcade in Lynchburg, Va.
