They have to include mostly retro games, pissed geezers can\'t be expected to play new stuff. I can see some drunk throwing up all over the afterburner cockpit though.

It was the thing at uni to have an Xbox or some similar device in the Student Union Bar along with the pool tables but I never saw the appeal, too busy drinkin\' I guess.

I was at the seaside the other week (Winter on the British coast, that\'s a bloody experience I can tell you) and I went in an arcade for the first time in what seems like decades. It was great, ended up fucking my elbow up with some whack-a-mole game and pumping far too many pound coins into a \"Time Crisis\" zombie shoot-up. Good times had by us all (24-39 years, one bloke, two women).

Would it work in U.K. Possibly in a big city. Maybe as a \"room\" in a nightclub somewhere. I\'m a bit cynical though, I think brits just go to the clubs to get ratted, cop-off, or beat the shit outta someone.

Someone should open a pub with them in, I\'d drink there but they\'d have to include some retro-machines.

Maybe the Star Wars Trench Attack..?
