I still remember the first time I played arcade games in the indoor playground when I was in primary school. When school was over, a group of children flocked to the arcade hall, and I was dragged there. The excitement of being in a place like this for the first time can be tinged with a bit of nervousness. In the arcade room, the dim light mixed with the light of various arcade machines, the heavy smell of smoke in the air, the sound of joysticks and buttons, and the creaking of old ceiling fans made a picture of the most primitive memory.

Arcade hall-It’s not about the game, it’s not about the people you played with!

In the arcade hall, there are all kinds of machines, people have computers and phones, and they can play games whenever they want. Machines in an arcade hall in the past time also are more finite, there were about 20 machines in a small arcade hall, and maybe 40 or 50 machines in a bigger arcade hall. There were no more seats sometimes because people were too many, so we could only wait for some people to leave.

We usually called some good friends to play together, on the one hand, it is not easy to be ripped off in this way, on the other hand, it is not easy to quarrel with others while playing. After all, in the arcade hall, even fighting is really common. Of course, there are also a number of people who broke up with friends, this is very embarrassing!

At that time in the arcade hall there were mainly three categories of players: one is only playing combat game players, PK game fun, they were not interested in other games; One liked to play fruit machine and mahjong type of games, arcade hall is mainly dependent on these people to feed; The last category is dabbling in a lot of arcade games, they can basically play all kinds of arcade games. But they are the real sense of arcade players!

By the 1990s, a number of domestic arcade games have entered the main street arcade hall, there were “a journey to the west”, “three kingdoms”, “sword” and other classic works. Countless young men enjoyed the fun that arcade game brought to them. But the golden age of arcade is only a few years, then the street arcade hall disappeared in the tide of times……

Looking back, there were some games that people don’t want their children to play because it was bad for their studying, such as the early years of novels, television, MP3, and learning machines, arcade…… As I got older, I never went to the arcade hall again, so I don’t remember when it disappeared. I occasionally want to review, I used to play “three kingdoms” with the simulator but I can no longer find the same feelings as when I was in the arcade hall! It’s not about the game, it’s not about the people you played with! But now, there are many old players who can play with you.  The perfect solution to the problem is not hurting each other when playing.
