In my time traveling fantasies I always like to stop by the arcades of my youth. My memories are still pretty vivid and fresh, so I know exactly what to expect. For those of you who did not live in the Golden Age of arcades and want a sneak peak of what you can expect on your journeys, you can check out this wonderful arcade footage filmed at the Central Park Arcade in Mt. View, CA in 1981.
The video shows the art, the sounds and the people that made going to an arcade such an interesting experience. What makes this video especially great is that the footage is so clear compared to others I have seen. It is a really great time capsule. Thanks to atarigames.com for uploading it.
