DTG: When Arcades Died, Gaming Died

Since many gamers in our modern era never experienced the popularity of the arcades, it can be difficult to perceive the effect arcades had on videogames. Today, they are but a shell of what they once were, but there was a time when the very heartbeat of console gaming was found within the arcade. Dedicated to Gamers explores the profound effect that the death of arcades has had on the game industry. (Industry, Retro)

I don't think arcades have died as much as the arcade cabinet makers think it has. If anything, they killed it off. There are a number of good arcades (some fairly large) here in Sacramento and they're all still very much in business best I can tell.
