The earliest arcade game I can think of was a ball bowling machine at a restrarant near Fox Lake by Chicago, it must of been the mid 60s when I was about 5. We would go there for bait or other fishing supplies. When I was growing up in Dover Tn on Ky Lake in the mid 70s we used to ride our motorcycles 9 miles to a game room to play pinballs. I went to RETS electronics in LouisvilIe & we used to got to a donut shop on breaks to play Gogar. I bought several arcade games in Marysville Ca & even had several in my dorm room at the nearby Air Force Base, I had Space Ace, Space Fury, & Bomb Jack which I still have, I got my first game Pinbot that I still have around 93. I moved all this stuff several times to different apartments that I lived in at the time too. Now I have 5 pins, Pinbot, Baywatch, Gogar, Sound Stage, & Dealers Choice. 2 NSM jukeboxes & 3 arcade games, Turbo Outrun, Bomb Jack & Altered Beast. Out of room to get more for now.
