Welcome to Arcadedevils.com, where we celebrate all things gaming. Before we go any further, picture this:
You sidle up to a colourful, blocky cabinet, the metallic jangling of the coins cupped in your hand an omen of what is to come. You insert two coins into a knee-level slot. Thunk. Thunk. Nothing is sweeter than the clunks sounding out as those coins roll deep into the heart of the arcade game in front of you. With fingers poised over big buttons and one hand clutching the joystick, you’re ready; and so, you push Start.
Did that bring back some memories? We thought it would.
