Classic Arcade Games At Home?


Visitors: 227

Some people like to unwind by listening to music, some like to watch TV, some like to indulge in a little baking, and some like to play in the Arcades.

Those people who belong to the first three categories are lucky because the radio, the television, and the oven could be found in the comfort of their own homes.

The same couldn't be said for the guy who likes to play in the Arcade though as the nearest Arcade is probably blocks away. And due to the dwindling popularity of the Arcades, their numbers have dropped as well.

But, as is the case with almost everything else in our modern world, technology has made it easier for the Arcade Buff. Your favorite arcade games like Pac-Man, Pinball, and Space Invaders can now be played in the comfort of your own home all for free.

You don't have to buy those bulky Arcade Machines. The solution is actually more practical. You only have to go to your desk, open the computer, connect to the Internet, and go to one of those on-line Arcades. Nobody has to see you struggling over that unbeatable stage in Super Mario.

Nobody has to see you fumble with the controls as you try to outrun the enemies in Pac-man. Nobody has to hear that booming voice shout “Game Over". You can do it all in the comfort and privacy of your own home. No more humiliating defeats, no more annoying bystanders whispering that they can do better, no more waiting in line to buy tokens. Indeed, the on-line arcade has made things extremely better for the modern gamer.

Online arcades also offer a bigger variety of games than your local arcade. There are over a million arcade games in the Internet, a number made possible by the emergence of different versions of different games.

These on-line games, ranging from puzzle games to shooting games to word games, have even become more complex, more interesting, and more addictive. Pac-man, a traditionally two dimensional game has evolved into a full three dimensional game, where our hero, Pac-man has changed from a mere circle to a 3-d sphere with legs and arms, and an interesting personality to boot.

Modern Technology has made things easier for the modern man. If you're too busy to go to the actual Arcades, you can still indulge yourself in the Internet without having to leave your home and and play free arcade games.
