… And let’s just say it’s clearly not the 1970s, anymore. Heck, even when I was a kid in the mid-90s through the early 2000s, I remember there being a lot more arcades out there — coin operated, too!

I used to go to the mall every weekend with my friend Rory (a young boy who had a penchant for tucking in his logo’d t-shirts), and we’d always find ourselves in what I recall being an absolutely massive arcade. We both had home consoles, and in most cases the home games looked better than the slightly dated arcade machines, but there was just something about an arcade, the way it stimulated all of your senses, to which home consoles couldn’t compare. There was that social aspect, that feeling of being.

Person-to-person interaction is lost on most gamers these days. I blame the internet. But hey, I’m part of the problem. Click the piece of nostalgia below for the depressing map.

Caption: “I used to not care about my hair until I moved to Canada.” Some good old fashioned social commentary for you.
