Fred and Trees discuss the wonderful world of arcade games.  As this is a broad topic, all format is thrown out the window and discussions include what makes up an arcade, arcade title eras, arcade games vs. home consoles, atmosphere of arcades, MAME, and of course more games than can rightfully be named here.

Intro song is Pac-Man Fever by Buckner & Garcia

Outro song is 1980 by Dirt Nasty

  1. On the subject of burn in, I remember TX-1, a F1 style racing game from waaaay back in 1983, which used three screens, and right in the middle of the centre screen GAME OVER would displayed in large letters whenever the game was not being played, no matter what screen the attract sequence was on, which meant that whenever I saw the game in an arcade and played it I would always see a ghost image of the game over message while playing the game.
