What's a Japanese arcade like?
« on: February 11, 2010, 05:21:40 PM »
I've never been to a Japanese arcade.  What is it like inside one of the nicer ones?  What games are available to play nowadays?  Are there any classics that are always available?  I'm mostly interested in the STGs.

It's like warm sunshine, but without the sun.

I picture smoke infested dimly lit places, not unlike casino's Stateside.

I imagine they are ultra sterile unlike the greasy pizza place arcades of yore here in the states.

That's a little scary.  Sounds like it'll give you cancer.
