You kids today don't know what real gaming is. You talk about your┬*Call of Honors┬*and Gears of Halos┬*like it was spun gold coming straight from God's butt. Back in┬*our day, there were real games... inventive, crazy,┬*hard games that charged a quarter for each play and made you stand up in front of a giant wooden cabinet as you played. And we had to walk┬*fifteen miles in the snow to play 'em. Uphill! Both ways!

Wait! Come back here, you whippersnappers. This is important. You're going to sit here and you're going to let us regale you with tales and videos of what made the golden age of arcades so special, or so help me I will throw that WiiStation 360 of yours right out the window, dagnabbit.
