    No, Coldguy who maintains the Giant Videogame Store map hasn't done that due to time constraints. Go ahead with it, I'd love to see where all the games are at! I'm wondering if you would consider putting places on the map that aren't exactly arcades, but have a few machines in them. For example, there's a little independent fried chicken place near where I work that has a Ms. Pac-Man and a Gaplus machine. I don't know how long they will be there, though. If locations like that were included, it would have to be updated all the time with what machines they have (or remove and don't replace), which would be a lot of work.

    You know, I hadn't though of that at first, but that is a very good idea! There's a comic book store near me with Street Fighter Alpha 3, The Punisher, and Alien Vs. Predator. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Off the top of my head, there's a Tilt! Arcade in The Parks Mall in Arlington, TX, and the fried chicken place I mentioned earlier is called Golden Wings in Grand Prairie, TX. There's also an arcade in a mall in Waco, TX that I can't remember the name of, and also one in a mall in Lafayette, LA (there's pretty much only one mall in both Waco and Lafayette).

    Why don't you change the name of this thread to 'contribute to the giant arcade map' to draw more attention and get people helping out.

    Quick edit: You've gotta have the 1984 Arcade in Springfield, MO. I've been dying to make the ridiculously long drive up there just to visit.

    OK, if anyone wants to contribute please tell me your e-mail address through PM and I'll send you an invitation, thank you!

    Sorry about that mix-up earlier for those who wanted to edit but couldn't, I put up the settings wrong. And I edited the thread title.

    The Manitou Penny Arcade is one of the best arcades I have been to. It has a ton of old and new. They have about 250 machines, some of my favorites are the old baseball games. My wife takes my son and me there every year for my birthday. Pretty cool place. The address is: 930 Block Manitou Ave., Manitou Springs, CO
