The Arcade

I’m going full @notherhalohere . . .

15 year old you has been dropped off at the mall with a pocketful of quarters and a three hour window. You head to the arcade. What are you playing?

On a side not to that.  Whenever I see Karate Kid, can't help to say, Golf N Stuff is nowhere close to Reseda.  

And whatever I played, the quarters didn't last long.  I don't remember what I played.  I know the classics were in there, asteroids, missle command, space invaders, pac man.  I remember the Stop n Go had Sinistar.  And the Pizza place had Dragon's Lair.

yeah, that always made me chuckle. it's at least an hour away. we used to take our 8th graders there every fall for the first class activity of the year. lots of fun memories.

That arcade would be in Newport Beach and I would need dimes for skeeball and the gunner trainer that used real footage of Messerschmitt Bf 109's attacking a bomber. I never got into pinball and Missile Command was still five years away. 

my experience was similar - didn't really have a local arcade where i lived but when i found skeeball, i was all over it. i think that was mostly at shakey's pizza place. 

my favorite "video game" to play back then was an arcade baseball game at Disneyland. it was mechanical and "pitched" a ball by rolling it to home plate, where you controlled a bat and swung at it to hit. depending on where the ball landed, that's what you got - a single, a double, an out, a homer, etc. I think they even had mechanical base runners for a while. this game was found on main street in what is now the back part of the candy store. i loved hitting that up at the end of the day before we left the park.

The Golf n Stuff they filmed at is actually in Norwalk.I happened to be there that night,  you can see my Harley in the parking lot. I did not know what movie they were filming at the time and I wondered why the parking lot was wet in the middle of summer.I have to admit it was pretty cool when I saw that scene.

You guys were going to arcades when you were 15? 

I was touching bewbies. 

in fairness, it's not an either-or proposition.

If you were spending time at the arcade when you were 15, the bewbie option definitely wasn't available to you.
