I’d always thought Japan has more interesting arcade selection than America (We’re just too darn glued on our consoles and PCs). I mean, I would love to play the table flipping game or the Dragon Ball Card Game thingie but they never seem to make it in America, or even if they did, they aren’t translated. :/ Anyway, this post is to inform you about a documentary called 100 Yen: The Japanese Arcade Experience which focuses on the thriving, exciting, vibrant world of the arcades in Japan.
“IMAGINE a world where video games reign supreme. Five stories of arcade cabinets, new and old, dominate the streets of downtown Tokyo. Welcome to Japan. A place where the arcades of the 80’s and 90’s not only still exist, but thrive and have evolved into elaborate environments of pleasure for any gamer.
