Some people like to unwind by listening to music, some like to watch TV, some like to indulge in a little baking, and some like to play in the Arcades. Those people who belong to the first three categories are lucky because the radio, the television, and the oven could be found in the comfort of their own homes.
The same couldn't be said for those who like to play in the Arcade though as the nearest Arcade is probably blocks away or those who now prefer old classic arcade games through sites like alleyrollers.com/.
But, as is the case with almost everything else in our modern world, technology has made it easier for the Arcade Buff. Your favorite arcade games like Pac-Man, Pinball, and Space Invaders can now be played in the comfort of your own home all for free.
You don't have to buy those bulky Arcade Machines. The solution is actually more practical. You only have to go to your desk, open the computer, connect to the Internet, and go to one of those on-line Arcades. Nobody has to see you struggling over that unbeatable stage in Super Mario.
Nobody has to see you fumble with the controls as you try to outrun the enemies in Pac-man. Nobody has to hear that booming voice shout "Game Over". You can do it all in the comfort and privacy of your own home. No more humiliating defeats, no more annoying bystanders whispering that they can do better, no more waiting in line to buy tokens. Indeed, the on-line arcade has made things extremely better for the modern gamer.
Online arcades also offer a bigger variety of games than your local arcade. There are over a million arcade games on the Internet, a number made possible by the emergence of different versions of different games.
