Hello dues how are ya??

I mi$$ arcades like crazy...... I used to goto my mall and play Frogger,Ms. pacman,Galaga,etc....... Ahhhhh it was fun!!!!!

Now all there is IS PURE CRAP in malls..... This joke called "WOW ENTERTAINMENT" -- Nothing but garbage in there!! (Nothing I wanna play)

What happend to good games like we had in the early 80s???? -- I dont mean these newer cabinets with multiple games,its just crap (Doesnt sound as good,etc)... I PREFER THE ORIGINAL EARLY 80s ARCADE GAMES!!!!!!!!!

I have read of an arcade place in NH that supposedly has original games........ I WOULD LOVE GOING TO IT!!!

I agree 100%! I have seen some bars online that will have retro games lining the walls, I love to go a place like that if I had one nearby. I know you don't like the newer cabinets with multiple games but its what I plan to do, its pretty cheap if you build your own.

Its time to get GOOD stuff back

When you stop watching what they want you to watch you stop thinking what they want you to think.. Then you see a world that is nothing like they tell you it is.

Yeah, definitely. I noticed that retro arcade games are getting back. In my town, you can find at least a few places with platforms and games from the 90s. It gives a lot of fun to play same games you played as a child. I believe that you will find some good places in NH which meet your expectations.

I went to a local mall here yesterday and played pacman

Its not the original 80s machine so it didnt sound as nice but it was still nice playing...... THANKFULLY ITS NOT "WOW ENTERTAINMENT" -- That place has nothing but crap in it!!

There are "classic" arcades popping up around - we've got one here in North Houston that I've been to a number of times:

And when in Portland, OR, be sure to check out the Ground Kontrol bar and arcade. They have an awesome WOPR themed bar and a WarGames threat display board, too.

(and thanks for the reminder, I'll be in Portland for business next month!)

I have the original Donkey Kong, Mario Brothers and Ms Pac Man coin-op games. I brought them over to my folks (grandma & grandpa) so all the kids could play them. Ms Pac Man hasn't worked in years tho. When I turn it on it says Bad ROM 1. Not sure what that entails to fix it.

I wonder if something is loose in it?

Have you tried taking it apart,cleaning and reseating things?

Good luck.... MSPACMAN IS MY FAVOURITE!!

Have you been to the Pinball Hall of Fame (I think that's what it's called) in Vegas? They have tons of pinball machines + lots of old arcade games. Free to enter and you just need quarters to play. Loved checking that out.
