TGS 09: Pre-TGS Arcade Trip


Posted September 21, 2009 - By Billy Berghammer

Monday was an adjustment day for jetlag for the nerd army. The time change with going to Japan is pretty brutal for people not used to it, and since we had some free time before everything got underway, I decided to take the nerd army on a sort of nerd tour through some of my favorite spots in Tokyo. Akihabara, otherwise known as Electric Town is the usual place to flock for gamers. While it's shrunk in the last 10 years, there's still heaps of game shops and arcades to check out. Two of the main ones are owned by Sega and Taito, and while I'm not a fan of the Sega arcade, the Taito one sucked quite a few yen out of our pockets.

As someone who grew up in arcades, it's quite refreshing to see them still flourish here in Japan. From kids to business men, the age group varies quite a bit to who plays games. Here's a couple of videos of some of the latest and greatest games to be found in Japanese arcades. Take that Gameworks and Dave and Busters!
