Welcome to VidiotArcade.com.

Back in 1994 my girlfriend at the time(aka The Future Wife) was nice enough to go on a hunt to find me an arcade game for Christmas. Lucky for me she found a Donkey Kong 3 in the local classified ads. Shortly after bringing it home we knew we would have to get another one, and from there 10 were not too far behind. So remember honey... this is all your fault!!!

We now consist of a family of four with two great kiddos who like to game at least as much as their Dad. Our high game count was 38 arcade games and 3 pinball machines. Currently we have ~20 arcade games and 8 pinball machines(and one Xbox 360 that looks like R2-D2!).

(Most current video as of March 2, 2014.)

Through the years we have owned close to 100 different games and have had a blast meeting people from all over the northeast(and one in Kentucky!). We took a 4 or 5 year break from buying games while we raised our kids, but they are now old enough to know THESE GAMES RULE!!!

The 5th annual Vidiot for a Day has come and gone and that makes me sad...
Vidiot for a Day!
But it was the first time I didn't have to cook for hours so I'm not that sad! I hope everyone had a blast because I know I did! HERE are some pictures Michele took throughout the day.

Finished the Elvira page and added the WHO Dunnit and Hurricane pages.
UPDATE: 05-21-2014
Ended up trading the Star Wars Episode 1 pinball to Robot City Games in order to get our old Batman Forever back! Casey did a wonderful job on adding LEDs to it and I have to say that this is the only pin I missed after getting rid of it. Very happy to have it back!

I *finally* took a bit of time and added the Creature from the Black Lagoon and Elvira and the Party Monsters pages. I also added back and updated the Batman Forever page. Hopefully I'll finish the Elvira page and then add the Hurricane and WHO Dunnit pages later this week.

UPDATE: 04-19-2014
Finally put together an album of all the Star Wars Episode 1 pinball pictures that have been taken over the past month. It's really neat how you can see the progress that was made. The last pictures were taken after most of the lights were changed to LEDs including the flourescent behind the translite. I still need to add a few game pages to the site here... maybe this weekend? Yeah right!

As seen above, I ended up taking a new video of the basement a couple days ago. Now I'm not sure where we are going to be putting the Star Wars Episode 1 pinball that's being picked up tomorrow... DOAH!!!

Also, here are some pictures of Elvira and the Party Monsters, Hurricane, and Creature from the Black Lagoon. The Creature is *not* ours, I took it in to fix and clean and in return we've been able to keep it for the past 5 or 6 months. It's a great game! The other two games have been completely fixed up, cleaned, and have had LEDs selectively added to them... I'll have to take some more current pics of them soon.

Again, hopefully I'll get to update the site with new pages for all the new games soon!
UPDATE: 03-01-2014
Wow, it's been a while since the last update. Things have changed quite a bit down in the arcade. We've added a Williams Hurricane pinball and a Williams Who Dunnit pinball. We sold off the Gottlieb Super Mario Bros pinball, Punch-Out, Gyruss, Track & Field, Mr. Do, and Robotron. Most of the sold games are at Robot City Games right down on Clinton St. in good ol' Binghamton, NY.

Heh... it almost sounds like we gutted the basement but we didn't. There are still plenty of games down there and there is a bunch more open space... which we will be losing a little bit of when we pickup a Star Wars Episode 1 pinball next week.

Hopefully I'll update the site this week with pictures of the new games... hopefully.
UPDATE: 08-08-2013
Had our annual "Vidiot for a Day" get-together last weekend and I hope everyone that showed up had fun! I know my son and his friends(and Roy's twins) were in gamer heaven! It was great seeing the classic consoles being used all day long!

Vidiot for a Day!

HERE are some pictures Michele took throughout the day...

And I figured while we had everyone here I may as well try to thin the heard a little. Lunar Lander, Space Encounters, the Tempest cabaret, and the Gorf cabaret have all left the arcade. In their place we will add *open space* and eventually another pinball machine. We're hoping for a Creature from the Black Lagoon!
