The arcade in my mall was closed long before Westfield came and bought the mall. Pretty much all my money at arcades went to shooting games like time crisis, house of the dead, virtual cop, silent scope or that jurassic park one that was awesome

I saw a commercial for dave and busters and the new arcade games they have are phone games, thas sad.
