Arcade Hunters FAQ #1


Here's the FAQ to answer some of your questions that you guys might have had about the past, present and future of Arcade Hunters.


  1. Nick,

    I enjoyed that. Doing one of these was a great idea. I think one every couple of months would be good.


    See you in June.

  2. I am astonished that the "Death of the Arcades" article would generate such hatred, particularly the comment like the one regarding "World of Warcraft".

    Anyhow guys, KUDOS for keeping the efforts up. I am glad you are doing this.

    I am involved with a group for fans of casual and retro games (includes arcade stuff), called CADERS.

  3. We've lost friends to WoW, so I was a little angry when I first heard that comment in the video. Arcade games for me will always be more social then MMO's because they require you to physically go out then interact with real flesh and blood people.

    But mostly watching the PV show I was dumbfounded. It was like the people on the show never lived through the 80's. I often get told I'm too young to cover arcades since I was born in 81', but the people in the video must have been in their late 20's or early 30's when they recorded it.

    When I heard the one girl comment about sports games I just yelled out "WHAT!?" and had to rewind the video to make sure I heard her correctly.
