1984: Retro Arcade in Springfield Missouri

DSC00740

I had a chance to play at 1984, a local retro arcade, yesterday. I absolutely love this place. It is packed full of games, memorabilia, and decorations that just fill you to overflowing with nostalgia. My 10 year old actually played pole position for like 15 whole minutes! That is incredible!

I personally spent my time on Rampage with my 8 year old when I wasn’t snapping pictures.

The owners of this place are great. They love to stand around and chat with the parents and fondly discuss games. They’re knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. We even chatted about electronics for a bit and opened up the Black Knight 2000 pinball table to look at some retrofits. Great guys really. If you’re ever in Springfield Missouri, you should make some time to stop by. If you can’t make it in person, or want to know more, their website is www.1984arcade.com
