Welcome to VidiotArcade.com.
Back in 1994 my girlfriend at the time(aka The Future Wife) was nice enough to go on a hunt to find me an arcade game for Christmas. Lucky for me she found a Donkey Kong 3 in the local classified ads. Shortly after bringing it home we knew we would have to get another one, and from there 10 were not too far behind. So remember honey... this is all your fault!!!
We now consist of a family of four with two great kiddos who like to game at least as much as their Dad. Our high game count was 38 arcade games and 3 pinball machines. Currently we have 28 arcade games and 6 pinball machines.
Through the years we have owned close to 100 different games and have had a blast meeting people from all over the northeast(and one in Kentucky!). We took a 4 or 5 year break from buying games while we raised our kids, but they are now old enough to know THESE GAMES RULE!!!
They both are currently non-working and need some TLC. Lunar Lander is partially working and Battlezone needs a good cleaning before I even power it up.
I took some pictures today so I'll add them later this week.
Sounds much better now... go to the X-Files page to see the guide I used and some pictures of the completed modification.
I also started working on a Major Havoc cabaret project...
So I grabbed the web pages from games we no longer have. I have always wished I saved every page, picture, and game really that I've had but I wasn't blessed with enough brains or storage space for that.
Here they are: Turbo, Mr. Do!, Jungle King(no pics), Hyper Sports, Circus, and Burgertime.
Some of the verbage on those pages makes me laugh. What a different time it was and what a different person I was.
But that's winding down and it's time to start enjoying the games again. Man things have changed down in the VidiotArcade... I ended up selling Hang-On, Maverick and Batman Forever locally to Robot City Games and I also sold Stargate, Centipede, and the Freddy pinball to non-locals.
Since we had extra room we ended up getting a Space Encounters upright, a Moon Base cocktail, and a Starship Troopers pinball. I'll try to get some web pages up for all of them soon.
