Hi all,

I was on holiday last week (that's why I didn't contribute to the RG forum :wink: )
Anyway, on my hols to Paington (in Devon) I came across a few arcades. Now, I didn't take loads of pics (I never seem to remember to have my camera on me at the right times) but I did have my camera on me when I went on the pier

So, here is where I went:

Paington Pier - July 2009

and upon entering, I found quite a few games:

Rambo

star_wars_trilogy.jpg

Star Wars Trilogy

sega_rally_3.jpg

Sega Rally 3

Now, there was lots more, but I only got pics of machines that I hadn't seen elsewhere or ones that I was interested in.
I did stumble across two slightly unusual machines:

Guitar Hero

I was very shocked to see a Guitar Hero arcade machine .... I thought this was quite neat.
I had a quick go, it seems to be mostly the tracks from GH2 and GH3 on this machine.

and finally .... I spotted a machine that had a choice of games on it, not a MAME cab, but, the games is carried were Retro :)

Arcade Classics

Upon sticking my coin in, I could choose from: Space Invaders, Pacman, Frogger and a couple of others (can't remember them all)

So, if anyone wants to go on holiday to specifically find arcade machines, Paington seems to be a good place to go :)

Nice piccies, it's been a while since I've been to an arcade machine land... probably around Metal Slug 1 era... :ROTFLOL2:
Is the Rambo machine merged with the Coca-cola one somehow? Do you get to drink to gain energy? ;)

PS: Don't forget to say hello to Pierre from us next time. :mrgreen:

Unfortunately not! It would be waaaay cool if the Coca-Cola machine was merged with the Rambo arcade :)

Nice find.

I'm quite lucky where I live as I have Southsea (Portsmouth) close by which still has a fairly large arcade with loads of machines. Plus there are 2 piers in Southsea too, which also house quite large arcades.

Worthing also has a Pier with an arcade.

And in Southampton their is the Sega Park which has a load as well. Another which used to have loads, Leisure World, was updated recently and they sadly took most of the arcade machines out, but there are still some there.
