I want to tell you a short story. A very short story. Earlier this year I had the fortune to visit an arcade in Japan. Floors and floors of arcade machines crammed into every corner. They were almost all chunky and white, some with distracting flickering and others with ‘out of order’ signs on them. This wasn’t a place in pristine condition. I was intimidated. I barely spoke the language, and there were a few (mostly younger) men slamming through fighting games and scrolling shooters like Raiden.
