I think its because u can play them at home. Back when arcades was huge like when streetfighter 2 first came out, consoles werent up to par with that tech. Now its like consoles have surpassed everything u can do in an arcade game & is why arcade games have faded & is not as big as it use to be.

Also the challenge one another is also huge on consoles now because u can play against almost anyone across the globe online which arcade games cant do but i still think their cool to have around. If u ever go to a laundry place to do laundry they have arcade machines. It makes time fly by but now phones are big on games & thats another thing that is killing off arcade games.

I miss those days... I don't think there is anything that can be done to really bring them back to what we once knew them as. These machines were very expensive back then and still are today. Thankfully whenever I visit the beach there is an arcade there that has been thriving for over 50 years.
