A 1984 Virtual Arcade By Dave Dries

With the announcement yesterday of the Retroist Arcade Meet Up At 1984! I felt this wonderfully moving tribute by Dave Dries over at CinemArcade needed to be shared. Dave’s computer animated ode to those glory days of the Mall Arcades, with aid by Journey’s “Stone in Love” as well as an absolutely fantastic catalog of background arcade titles makes me wish that November 9th was already here!

A big thanks to jamin1317 for uploading this video over on YouTube!
