Over at Kottke [2], I saw this story by Laura June on the life and death of the American arcade [3].

Man, this brings back memories. I was nine-years old in 1980 so I remember all these games–Space Invaders, Asteroids, Galaxian, Defender, Pac-Man, Donkey Kong–being a big deal.

Centipede was my favorite.


Check it out.
