During my holyday in Italy this summer 2006,  some walks along the Riccione & Rimini coast allow me to discover many gamerooms on the beach border, where all the tourists walk...
There are 'Luna Park' every 800 meters, which mostly include the same games : Daytona USA, Time Crisis, UFO Catchers, Cranes, Coins pusher, ...

However, here's a selection of  *specific* games     arrow

"Lord of the Rings" pinball  Tongue



Most of Luna Park there have one. We really enjoy to play it  Smiley A little bit expensive to buy it now, but in few years maybe  Shocked



Ouch, nothing to say about that *poor* cab' convertion, from a beautifull Gauntlet Legend to a Soul Calibur jamma  Sad The panel looks horrible  confused  I hope the orginial GL  panel is waiting somewhere in order to reverse that modification...



A lot of  Point Blank too  Smiley  This time, in a Naomi cab'  roll eyes  arrow



As a *huge* Star Wars fan, I can resist to give a try at the "Star Wars Episode I" pinball... well, I don't like it  confused  It looks empty  :cry:  



Cool, an Indy 500 dual cab'  Shocked  I know it well, but I haven't played it since...  Cool  I would like to own this once  roll eyes  lol



Woow... LUPIN III - the shooting  Shocked

I didn't know that game... When I saw the attract mode, I said : "Wooowww... a new laser disc game ? Cliff Hanger II Huh?..."



Well, it's unfortunalely not a new laser disc game, but it's a great shooting game a la "Time Crisis" or "House of Death"  Smiley

... I saw it also in a Naomi cab' :



A lot of DrumMania...



...I whish had one soon  roll eyes  Twisted

In the "Sala Giochi Pyramid", an AIRLINE PILOTS  Tongue  Tongue  Tongue



I play it for the first time two years ago in UK. I really like it. So zen  Shocked
What a beautifull cab isn't it ?

I cannot resist...  Tongue  Tongue  Tongue



Many many pinballs... I like "THE SOPRANOS"  Smiley



What wrong on the following picture Huh?



ZERO GUNNER 2  Shocked  You must try it, a sublime 'modern' shmups, and very playable  !!!



Ok, as a vintage arcade games  collector, my quest in Italia was to found vintage old games of course Cheesy  Cheesy  Cheesy  So here's what I was able to found  

Chase H.Q. & Hang-On ..... wooow  Tongue  Tongue  Tongue



a Vigilante (let's save Madonna...  Cool  Cool  Cool ) and a Double Dragon II  Smiley



...the 'original' Wonderboy  Tongue  Tongue  Tongue  ...



...an Arkanoid, and ...and ... shit I can't recognize it now... I would say 'The Simpsons' ?  oppps  oppps  oppps



...Ah yes  Cheesy  Not a 'vintage' one, but... look at this Gauntelt Legends...



...The first OUT RUN and ... my god ... a SHINOBI  shock  Shocked



... a Puck Man, and an Arkanoid...  Tongue



Have a nice 'arcade' trip if  you go there  Cool  Cool  Cool

Of course ArcadeFever... and let me know if you want the full size high res pictures, I'll be glad to send them to you on your mail  

I was really surprised like you to see such oldies sill alive on arcade in 2006  shock  Shocked

Well, mostly of these old games are on a generic cab, but.... hell man, playing Out Run, Vigilante or Wonderboy in a real arcade game in 2006 is a great experience  roll eyes    Smiley  Smiley  Smiley

I think those games are getting timeless, if they were songs people would call them "evergreens". The only problem is that those games can't compaire with the gamblin' games nowadays, in makin' profit that is.
If I look at my kids, 6 and 5 years of age, they do like to play those games just as much as I liked them at their age, and ofcourse I still like to play those oldies, even if I have to pay for it.

I totally agree with Jomm  Shocked  My wife says that I'm crazy to pay for playing such same oldies...  It's not because it's old games, but she said I'm already playing them at home, for free  Cheesy  Cheesy  Cheesy  Cool
