While the article we’re linking to on this one doesn’t really have much to do with real coin-op arcades – it treats them as though they don’t exist anymore while it discusses a new software game suite that has people buying virtual tokens like they were in an arcade, it does bring up the subject of the kinds of games people are trending towards playing. Now I don’t know if they have any solid evidence that people are starting to opt towards playing arcade-style games with their emphasis on skill and action but personally I can say that for the past few years I just haven’t got into 50 hr. gaming odysseys like I used to do. Some of that has to do with the fact that as a busy father and husband I really don’t have time to spend on games like I used to but there also is a factor that I’m just not finding as many games I’m interested in playing for this ‘generation’ as I used to. I have an Xbox 360 and a Wii but I haven’t bought many games for either system as I haven’t found a lot that interests me. I do a bit of PC gaming while at the arcade and in a few cases I find something to spend a bit of time on (like with Fallout 3) but overall I seem to play more ‘arcade-style’ games, even on the PC, when I do find time for gaming. What about yourselves?
