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