It’s been a little while since I had the time to do an arcade location review but hopefully soon I’ll be able to get back onto that. In the meantime it’s great to see papers covering some of the arcades in their area, as is the instance with The Press Enterprise in California. They take a general look at the arcade scene and how it has declined since the 80’s but also at a local arcade business that has been running since 1952 called the Big Bear Arcade. It looks pretty cool there and they have a lot of classics to go around including some great skeeball games too. Overall it’s a great article and it does point out the effect that die-hard fans have on keeping arcades alive, albeit it does focus a lot on how things aren’t like they were in the 80’s anymore but that is always common to do since that is still when things were best for arcades. On top of the article they also have a video but I couldn’t upload it to the site so here is the link.
