arcades RULED!


So inspired by all of the video-game-driven art I'm seeing lately... :)
I was thinking about how much I LOVED arcades when I was a kid...Those dark, smokey spots where all you saw were blinking lights and your ears were filled with the various 'bleeps' and 'zaps' from your favorite video-game machines... Those were the DAYS!!! Seems like the arcade is becoming a thing of the past... that's a shame! :(
I'm sure I'll be sketching arcade-themed stuff all week... I'm obsessed! :)

Yeah, arcades were the coolest renegade thing when you were younger, before the dawn of playstation, when the cutting-age games were only in the arcade.

TOP FIVE ARCADE GAMES:

Paperboy
Dragons Lair ' Don Bluth Rocks '
WireFrame Starwars

Great Job, Dagan! Arcade games are better than the console games because they had a lot of special effects!
These are my favorite Arcade games:

Darius, Darius II, Darius Gaiden (Taito, 1986,1988,1994-Ships-Red, Green, Blue Silver Hawks Pilots- Proco and Tiat Young from Darius)

R-Type(Irem, 1987- Ship-R-90 Pilot-Make your own)

Metal Black (Taito, 1991 Ship-MB-60 Oblivion Pilot-Make your own)

I've got more, except, I can't list them all! Can you draw some pilots of the ships in the games? Some you can see in the game, others you cannot, so you have to draw your own. Thanks Dagan, YOU ROCK!!!!
