Okay, the early 1980's had to be the highlight years for the arcades. Games were EVERYWHERE. Department stores, restaurants, supermarkets, and even funeral homes. If there was an electrical outlet, someone tried to plug in an arcade game. After Space Invaders, the next major hit that took the industry to the next level was Pac-Man and much like Space Invaders from the previous decade, Pac-Man games are still being made to this day (like Pac-Man Championship Edition for the XBox 360). Over the years, i've owned a few arcade games with the cocktail table version of Universal's Lady Bug being the first. The popularity of video games even spawned game shows, including “Starcade”. Yes, to this day, I still enjoy sitting back and playing these games...
