YES on ALL! :)

There must be about a million arcade games, as I keep getting exposed to ones that I had never heard of before. The Japan exclusives alone come to huge number. I saw a documentary the other day that mentioned that there was once a time when arcade games were made exlusively in the U.S. Even the earliest Japanese arcade games and consoles used American chips. Sega used chips by Texas Instruments for their first few consoles.

It's really impressive how many arcade games are out there - even after playing hundreds, I find hidden gems.

Yes, and sadly we are passed the prime for arcades. In the 80s they were everywhere, now you have to hunt for them. At least we have Dave & Busters, who probably buy more arcade games than anyone else. Fortuantely Jacksonville has a D & Bs. Disney has several arcades in their Walt Disney World Resorts in Orlando, but it's an expensive way to visit an arcade.

I've talked with the manager of the Jacksonville D & Bs, and he said that they had tried it but it really wasn't worth it. They're expensive to maintain, and were earning roughly $300 per month. A typical redemption game take in thousands of dollars, so in their eye they earn their floor space.

The one time I talked with Gary Stern I asked why D & Bs didn't have any Pinball machines in their Jacksonville location, and he said that they'd been trying hard to get them to place some on location, but so far have had no luck. That was in 2016, and even now D & Bs has no Pinball. Fortunately, according to Gary, Barcades are becoming a great avenue for Pinball machine sells.

But D & Bs does carry video arcade games, mostly from Global VR and Sega.
