Space Invaders Making A Comeback… In The Original Form
from the no-need-to-update-a-classic dept
There are plenty of old video games that have been getting an “update” lately. These are games that have the same title as a game from decades ago, but are otherwise almost entirely different. This isn’t a surprise, considering the vast difference in gaming technology. However, sometimes, people just want the original classic. Taito is planning to start selling the arcade machines of “Space Invaders” again – twenty five years after it was originally introduced. It’s not an update, but the same game that was such a big hit years ago (and one of the first video games I ever played). The only difference has to do with inflation. It’ll now cost $0.50 per play instead of the old standard of $0.25.

try it on excel...
If you’re missing those old games and don’t have the time to install an emulator, but you’ve got MS Excel… Try Excel Pacman…
Yes, bring it back. And bring back Asteroids too. And Galaga.
Set up an over-30 section at the arcade and keep those pesky kids out.
Actually, a lot of guys who were scrounging for quarters in the 80’s could probably afford to buy one of these things for their own rec room – if they can get it past their wives.
Some of the ol’ favorites.
Wow, I agree with Beck

This is a great idea. Maybe do a cover charge to keep the rug rats out. I could play Centipede for hours.

Actually, my wife WANTS a Ms. Pacman, but I simply don’t have any room in my rinky-dink California home.
