The arcade blogger.
A website full of retro awesome and a unique high quality look into a community that is often overlooked by mainstream gamers these days.
This has been my go to for inspiration on my own arcade machine project build. I love seeing the restoration and collections of these old cabinets. One particular article even covers how the community came together to rescue a collection from a community member after he had died. Compensating the family fairly and making sure the machines and parts go back to the community the owner loved to be a part of. I was to young to visit these old arcades myself in their prime. But I love the imagination and innovation that went into making the machines themselves. The creativity of the owners of the local arcades also interreges me, they basically built a refuge for the geeky youth. Some of which probably went on to create and innovate in the tech world we enjoy today.
