What Arcade-games did you use to play? When did you play them? And where? In the Arcades or somewhere else?
Interghost did a great video on it and made it a TAG:
This is my response to it. If you don't know Interghost yet - please go check out his video and channel.
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 have had more time to play games in Japanese arcades and have run across a few more interesting titles.
Tetris Plus 2: This is a fun Japanese only spin-off of Tetris. In the Puzzle Mode, you get to control either a Professor or her Apprentice through Tetris levels with a bit of a twist: you have to make the Tetris board completely empty in the time limit. Your cartoon avatar runs arounds the blocks as you make lines and a spiked wall tries to crush you as the time limit goes down-- the higher your blocks are, the more your avatar wants to climb to the top to get killed! It is a fun take on Tetris.
