The current generation of gamers is rather young and continuing to evolve, but gaming itself has been around for decades. Considering how massive the game industry is now, it’s crazy to think they’re not trying to expand beyond your living rooms. Movies have theaters, music has concerts, and even comic books have evolved beyond comics. Why is gaming not trying to “put on a show” like everyone else? With events like E3 and PAX, it has been proven that gamers can and will spend money to get more out of gaming. The problem is that gaming was once actually popular as arcades and now those arcades have vanished. However, arcades could be the concert or movie theaters of the gaming industry, if they were ever given a chance, but due to the history of the arcade, that may never happen. Let’s discover what arcades were and re-imagine them in a new way that could lead to a massive expansion of video games.
