Arcade Games

Video Games were once a big thing in the arcades worldwide. Beside slot machines, pinball tables and playing cards, games like Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, Pac-Man and later a ton of fighting games like Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat or Tekken and racing games like Ridge Racer, Pole Position or Sega Rally dominated the arcades.
