GAMES: Building a Console Arcade

20141027_182819

Dark rooms.  Stained floors.  The faint smell of nachos and teenage shame.  These are all things that come to mind when thinking of the classic American arcade.  At The Cave, we’ve tried to put together an arcade of our own with a large collection of gaming consoles, accessories, and CRT televisions.

We have legacy systems such as the Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Nintendo 64, and Sega Dreamcast.  We also have a pair of Playstation 2 systems, a Nintendo Gamecube, and a pair of Microsoft Xbox systems for the approaching-legacy division.  We have a total of four Xbox 360 systems and a Nintendo Wii serving as our more modern era collection.  Games for these systems are beginning to approach 250 in number.  As for televisions, we have 4 CRT televisions and an HDTV.

The beauty of our unconventional arcade is that it is a combination of all of our collections.  All of our tastes in games come together in the collection, allowing whoever stops by to experience what we feel is the best in gaming.  From the weird and wacky Katamari Damacy to the party classic Rock Band, you will certainly find a game to love among the stacks of cases.  And though the smell of nachos is replaced by the smell of grass on a lawnmower, the spirit of the classic American arcade is alive and well in the games half of The Cave.
