Big time. They were also really well designed to allow progression if you came back and started again. They really knew how to design them to extract maximum cash.

There was a very popular game in our local arcade called "Toki". I once made it to the last level on one credit (unfortunately didn't complete it). The entire arcade gathered around to cheer me on.

Another time myself and a good friend finished "Time Crisis" on a single credit in two player mode on a machine that was in our college. Again, massive crowd. People really got joy from watching. It was great. :)

!gaming is a community for gaming noobs through gaming aficionados. Unlike !games, we don’t take ourselves quite as serious. Shitposts and memes are welcome.

Our Rules:

1. Keep it civil.

Attack the argument, not the person. No racism/sexism/bigotry. Good faith argumentation only.

2. No sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia or any other flavor of bigotry.

I should not need to explain this one.

3. No bots, spam or self-promotion.

Only approved bots, which follow the guidelines for bots set by the instance, are allowed.

4. Try not to repost anything posted within the past month.

Beyond that, go for it. Not everyone is on every site all the time.
