Quoted from Otaku:

...It's really hard to explain, like the history (who made it, what year, how many were made, "it's old") is always really apparent of course because we always talk about it, but the actual history of where these machines have been and their stories is something I find that passes me by sometimes for some reason, probably because I wasn't there. Like I can go down in my basement and look at my games and know they're old and lived their lives out there in the world and can *think* about where they've been, but then you look back at these old pictures, evidence of the times, and you see one of the titles you own and it all really just kind of puts it into perspective and I find it very fascinating. Everybody focuses on the history of what happened at the factory and who made what game and whatnot, but I think the more exciting part is what came after that, each machine has it's own unique story of where it has been and most of them are unknown. They are all truly survivors and they sure had a long journey. Really makes me appreciate them even more.

I feel this way about games of the 1950s and 60s, that were before my time...

This 1990s arcade doesn't belong in this 70s/80s thread, but someone here is bound to remember the Exhilarama chain.
