    When I was a kid you could buy a Coke for 25 cents. We also used to put 25 cents into an "arcade machine" and played this for 90 seconds...then we'd have to shove in another quarter.

    Today a coke costs more like $1.79 at a convenience store. But we can pay 99 cents and play this for as long as we want:

    mods don't delete this thread... we can write what we played when we were kids, and how the times changed.

    My favorite all-time arcade game was a scrolling shooter called Slap Fight. It had the very best powerups and it was challenging. Sunk so many quarters in this guy.

    That and of course, Gorf :)

    And all the other classics, galaga, pacman, ghost n goblins.

    Ohhh man I know you did not just bring up TMNT arcade!!! Loved that game, I remember when that game came out on nes and EVERYONE had it. I still remember the pizza signs squashing your guy. Simpson's arcade is awesome, but I really think we're forgetting x-men here. Oh yeah!!! the one with colossus and mowhawk storm....good stuff. My first console was an Atari with pitfall and q-bert.

    So your just a little guy? Well when you grow up you'll be able to talk about all the fun times had on the dusty ol ps3. By then I'll probably get my kicks from oblivious senility, medications, and antiques roadshow...

    I'm a little too young to have lived during the full-out arcade era, but I played a handful of arcade machines during my time.

    When I was a kid I had to carry around a Sega Nomad with game cartridges that were as big as my iPod is right now! :eek:

    The controller on that is bigger then my iPhone. We've come a long way...

    As for games, I used to love this one:

    I still remember the first time I watched Dragon's Lair being played. It was mind blowing at the time.
