I was expecting better. Most were dirty and/or broken. The Star Wars was the best but it needs to be leveled/stabilized. Not worth it for the pins but there are other, newer video games.

Austin Powers was so badly worn that it was nearly unplayable, as was Addams Family. The Walking Dead was also in bad shape. I guess this is what you'd expect for a bunch of games exposed to the salty elements year-round.

Pins are in awe full shape. Star Wars had some broken rubbers that caused stuck balls in the left inlane. I played TAF, but it was barely playable. The classic arcade machines they have are in really bad shape too. Some of their newer games (mario cart) look to be in good shape and were getting lots of attention from customers.
