Japanese Retro Game Centers | Tokyo Arcade Experience ★ ONLY in JAPAN

11421 ratings | 488440 views
Japanese game centers are must visit places on any trip to Japan, but in Tokyo, there is a place where you can time warp back to the 1980s and 1990s and play those games of the past, too. Since Japan was the leader in arcade game programming and machine production, the culture stretches back decades and those old machines are still in use! Why do these retro arcade games and game centers still exist in Japan? In the USA, the arcade culture rapidly declined when the game consoles gained wide popularity, especially in the early 1990s, but in Japan, arcades or game center culture continued because it was more about the experience than the games itself. It was a place to go, hang out with friends, be a hero! There were many kinds of games from classic arcades to driving simulation games to dancing and rhythm games. Gamers from the 1980s are not in their 30s, 40s or 50s and they keep coming, playing those games from the past and thats great because it means we can all stop in and experience arcades games like we did as kids. ▶︎ Where is Mikado (Retro Game Center) https://goo.gl/maps/XrwcToabzam Station: Takadanobaba ▶︎ Super Potato | Retro Console Games in Akihabara: http://www.superpotato.com/ Games featured in this episode: OUT RUN (1986) Sega Tokyo Wars (1996) Namco Star Wars (1983) Atari Metal Hawk (1988) Namco Check out Miki's channel "Miki Lab": https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDQc7iivx7a-FwXFzSoK45w And Shingo's channel Let's Play Japan: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcQUB9PqG0xkxEwdAppU63A Check out more ONLY in JAPAN video clips and photos: http://instagram.com/onlyinjapantv MORE JAPANESE GAME CENTER VIDEOS: ★ Crane Game Secrets Revealed: Japan's UFO Catcher Academy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1r4xxvO41k ★ Japanese Photo Sticker Booths: Purikura Adventure https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3IwVttYtB4w ★ Gachapon Toy Capsules: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jt2g7Fpu_58 ▷ SUBTITLES: If you'd like to help out and submit a subtitle in your language, I'd really appreciate it so we can reach more people!

My arcade experience was ruined  when people started acting as if putting a quarter onto the cabinet reserved their turn (which I believe was the Mortal Kombat era). That was IT for me. No sense in having a pocket full of quarters anymore.

Parte de lo emocionante de los arcades era cuando retabas a personas desconocidas en juegos de pelea como street fighter, kof, Tekken, mortal combat, fatal fury, art of fighting, Samurai Shodown, marvel vs capcom etc etc etc o cuando te unías a un grupo para jugar, yo recuerdo los Simpson, Final Fight, Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, The Punisher, Captain Commando, Las Tortugas Ninja, que hermosos recuerdos T_T

Actually America still has many arcades running. And even better retro arcades! You should check out John's Arcade on Youtube. Also the overacting was a bit much. Other than that, cool video!
