Arcade Game Museum Opening In Japan
Now, this is my kind of a museum, I love to visit this and see all the greatest hits.
Here is an officially branded museum and it is called The Game Center Museum, it opened this month in Nagoya.
According to FNN, the museum has around 70 amusement machines as part of its exhibition. This isn’t a hands-off museum, and all the machines can be played after paying the entrance fee.
Games available to play include iconic retro games such as Space Invaders, Pac-Man, and Xevious, as well as music games from the Beatmania and Pop’n Music series. Street Fighter II, Afterburner, and Taiko no Tatsujin all make appearances. There are also Sega pinball machines, as well as small trains people can ride on.
While iterations of modern-day arcades go back before World War II, they started to come into their own during the 1960s and 1970s, with bowling allies, department store rooftops, and cafes all becoming places where people could go to the game.
