Dim The Lights For Another Arcade Has Fallen

Friends, I’ve never had the pleasure of visiting Arcade Infinity in Los Angeles but I get very sad whenever I hear yet another arcade has fallen. Thanks to Kotaku for the heads up on the video posted below by Hubert Chung, a fan of the arcade that put his grief into said video.

If you are fortunate enough to live near an arcade, frequent them, support them as best you may…because sadly there is no guarantee they will remain there.

  1. I used to hit the arcades on the Ocean City, NJ Boardwalk all the time, even as an adult. Once I moved to Florida in 2000…none to be found here. Closest thing is Dave & Busters, and that’s just not the same.

  2. Some great arcades at the Jersey Shore and some are still holding on. Does Florida have any that you know of worth visiting? Even if it would be a haul to get there?

    If any of you ever come to Chicago, I’ll take you to an arcade with 200+ restored retro games. $15 at the door = unlimited free play, no quarters needed.
