Welcome to Jamma-Nation-X.com
This site was created for the arcade gamer in mind. Hopefully the arcade generation will spread to the younger kids of today. Console games are great but do not offer the experience and nostalgia as they do for the arcade generation kids like us. -- read more
When I was a kid my mom used to take me with her when she used to go to the local arcade. She loved playing Pac-Man and I enjoyed watching her play.
I will never forget my mom's face as she played that game. Her smile was from ear to ear. My mom let me play Pac-Man once and I instantly fell in love with it. The ambient sound of the arcade just filled the room.
Random sound effects going off. When I got older I was still hooked on the arcade.
I then would sub-conciously be listening to the whole room while playing a game. You could tell if someone across the room was winning or losing while playing Tempest, Tron, Gauntlet, Gunsmoke, Shinobi, Bubble Bobble or Arkanoid.
One thing I miss about the arcades is the feeling of your imaginary throne while beating people at games like Street Fighter II. The lines would form and you are standing there for an hour or more and everyone is trying to beat you but can't. While you play you can hear people plotting on how they can beat you. "He always does that move then that one" sure you do but that doesn't mean they can beat you. Now when you play at home the fun is gone. You know you won the match but you didn't because of lag. Of course there are people out there who think lag would not affect the outcome of a fighting game. Bullshit. A fighting game is all about timing down to the millisecond. Certain moves as simple as a quick jump kick can be lost when your opponent with the slightly faster connection can execute it faster than you because his registers quicker.
Nothing will ever beat a face to face match on real arcade hardware.
