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!).
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!!!
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.
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!
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.
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!
