What are Arcade Games?

Arcade games go all the way back to the early days of video games. They’re one of the industry’s first genres. Some of them are ports of classic games from the 1980s and 1990s while others are more recent games that feature similar graphics and gameplay. Arcade games tend to be action-packed and have simple controls that can be learned very quickly.  They’ll take you on a journey through time to an era when titles like Space Invaders, Pac-Man, and Tempest still ruled the world of video games.

The 1980s is largely considered a golden age for the genre. That’s when millions of players from all around the world poured into arcades to try awesome racing games like Pole Position. Lots of players found themselves downright addicted to titles like Pac-Man, Centipede, Asteroids, and Missile Command that were later released on the Atari 2600, the NES, and other home consoles. 

Early shooting games including Ikari Warriors and Operation Wolf attracted tons of fans while running games helped pave the way toward more modern platform series like Super Mario Brothers and Sonic the Hedgehog. The games you’ll find in this collection include classic titles alongside newer ones that are packed full of old-school graphics and plenty of arcade action.
