OMG!!! It's gonna be an 80's weekend with the release of the A-team and the Karate Kid and to keep with the theme here comes another flashback to 80's when I was a kid. I'm at our local arcade that just opened, the Red Planet arcade. It was situated inbetween the grocery store and hardware store. You can go to the mall, but it was miles away and you had to ask your mom to drive you there. So more often we would hang out at the Red Planet, it was just a bike ride away from home.
This is a drawing of my buddy, Robbie and I. Robbie had the idea to take a washer and tie a string on it and stick it in the token slots to get credits on the machines. I told him it would never work and he was full of it. From what I remember, he said that he got a couple of credits. I never saw this, so don't go out attempting this. It's funny to remember those times, of just hanging out watching other people play video games, while you're waiting for your turn to play. Waiting to get the chance to get the high score... Although... I DID get the high score on Dig Dug and Crazy Climber a few times. Wassup!!! That's right "BOB" got the high score suckas!!! Man, I could have been on "Starcade". [link]
I would have totally schooled those guys.
Oh, and here is the greatest video game of all times! I was crazy addicted to this game: [link]
