I really like checking arcades for the old games, but the owners often have the pricing all wrong. I'd happily sink £2 into a machine at 10p a credit but 50p? what the fuck?
I had this little idea some years ago of running a 'modern' arcade with a global electronic leaderboard to encourage competition and play time. Members would get free credits on selected games, plus leaderboard prizes. Cheap retro games to draw in players, more expensive modern games for the hardcore competetors. Every other week you'd run an event on a the retro machines to drum up interest and draw customers. Once a month run a modern machine tournament to pay the electric bill. You'd sell it as a social club - they say gamers are lonely these days, right?
