Vintage 80s Arcade Photographs

Matt Barton's picture

Just saw something awesome on Game Set Watch: A cool Flickr album loaded with vintage shots of arcades from 1979-1989. Definitely worth checking out; hopefully we'll be able to use some of this in our forthcoming Gameplay Forever movie. See it all below, and if you have some of your own photos of the era, be sure to upload them to the Flickr group.

I agree, this is a brilliant

I agree, this is a brilliant idea. Why start at '79, though, I wonder? I would think from '72 onward would be good.

You sure these are really that old?

Funny how some of these fashions seemed to have come back.

the worlds full of people with no identity of there own, they cant even find new ways to dress... At least old 70's 80's cloths have function.... the pants hanging around your ankles is not very practical.... I mean you can buy pants with underwear pre stuck out of um!!!! if those people dont know they look like clowns... and the half turned baseball hats, time was when the only people who did that where mentally challanged people.. interesting peer group to steal that fashion from..

dont get me wrong I was just old enouhg to catch the very end of Bell Bottoms and man when I look at a picture of me with those... one period of my life I would gladly blank from my memory. Bell Bottoms and baseball jersy shirts and the SHINEY satin jackets.. and yes I even owned Parchute Pants!!!! I guess I didnt know I looked like a DORK back then either... youth is wasted...

Not a chance, I make a fool of myself pretty regualar with my words, I dont need photos to back it up! And for the record, I never did try breakdanceing ( i may be the only 80's kid who never saw the breakdancing movies, But I must admit Judd Nelson looked pretty cool doing it in MAKING THE GRADE (on of my favorite 80's movies)), but I did learn to Moonwalk pretty dang good.
