    Default Arcade Nirvana

    Last week I had the opportunity to attend a fellow collector's private arcade, about an hour south of Oklahoma City. The place isn't open for business -- it's a 6,600 square foot private playground, a joint venture between three friends who have built the ultimate hangout for their friends and family.

    If you enjoy arcade games, you won't want to miss these photos.

    Here are a few pictures to whet your appetite:

    Gameroom #2.


    A shot of the living room area.


    I performed all my own Q*Bert stunts in this scene.

    very cool! I have a basement that would be perfect for this if I could just move my family out of it (bedrooms, living room) I do have a game room but its consoles and tv) my pool table and air hockey table are usually in storage sadly and I haven't had a pinball machine in awhile. Man i envy these guys!

    Woohoo, Galaxian cocktail. Seeing gamerooms like this makes me sad that the next California Extreme is still so far away.

    We have been talking to the owners and may be putting together a high score tournament at their place this spring. If it happens and you are anywhere near Oklahoma, you should plan on attending.
