I don't live in the US but this year a third "new school" arcade opened its doors in my country, all by the same owner. They have Star Wars Battlepod, several Raw Thrills games like Batman (2013 driving game), Jurassic Park (2015) , Aliens Armageddon and Walking Dead
, Time Crisis 5, a couple of more racing games, that huge LED Pac Man game, a mini 4D experience and more non videogame related games.

Pretty cool walking around there and playing videogames, even though they are rather expensive. But they're worth it, especially Star Wars Battlepod which really is a terrific experience!

If I had a basement, I would have build my own arcade with authentic arcade cabinets of my favorite arcade games from the late 80s - mid 90s.

Bedroom: Sony KD-65ZD9 | Sony UBP-X1000ES | Sony STR-DN1050 | Boston Acoustics 5.1 setup

There's a few Namco Funscape Arcades dotted around the UK, I drop into the one in Tamworth from time to time. They're a lot different to classic arcades though, overpriced, and you only get so much for your money, no carrying on until you run out of lives anymore. Even Pac-Man only gives you one life. They had a retro section for a while, complete with lots of old gaemes, but that's been replaced with some indoor adventrue playground thing for little kids now.

There's the odd retro arcade about, but none in my usual areas. Nottingham has the uk national video game museum.

There's some amazing videos on Youtube of gaming arcades in people's houses (usually big American basements), where people have rescued classic machines.
