i think arcades kinda cause trouble in some places and adults may not like it very much, firstly they are loud, and attract a bunch of teens and stuff which ends up gathering trouble as well sometimes cause ive been to arcade where ppl get pickpocketed and stuff and then fights and shit start. i think that would be a big reason why they are dieing.
also another reason why they may be dieing as well is that most arcades dont even supply that much arcade games anymore. i barely know any arcades that only have actual arcade games. now its all about stupid ticket games, sure they are fun but they take up like at least half an arcade if they have them and then those arcades usually only have racing and shooters. seriously what happened to all the arcade fighters?? and those old games like TMNT, raiden, simpson, and sports games?? i think thats what they need in a actual arcade for actual gamers to come and play.

It's nice to know someone is thinking outside the box.

Arcades in Singapore are almost the same as those in Japan.
Wangan ftw.

i live in malaysia and in the middle of the city..the nearest arcade is about 200m from my house..i go there almost every night after i finish my job,
yeah its an arcade in a very famous centre so....the machine is all nice and service is done everyday....somemore it is non smoking in there...
in whole KL i think thats the only arcade left(most of the small one get closed down becoz of economy crisis) .....
i would love to see more arcade in other place in my country,maybe i can go somewhere else and take up a challenge from other players.....its bored to play with the same people every night....

Yeah, I noticed there are a lot of arcades in the Philippines when I was vacationing there o.o They're even in the malls! Here in the US it's just a building with games. And the games there aren't as diverse as they were in the Philippines. Imo, the arcades there were much funner than ones in the US. And there were so many people in them all the time haha. Thing is, I could never get on the DDR machine because there was always a line of schoolkids who go there everyday after school.

I had a pretty cool arcade in the mall a few years back, It had your Tekken 4, Soul Calibur II, Time Crisis 3, Crazy Taxi, DDR Extreme, and I even remember having a pop'n machine. You know, the music game with all the big buttons? Yeah that one. It was a great arcade for me atleast. Then it got closed down and was replaced by a Console Gaming/PC Lan place called Game Frog. That business is now closed down also.
