Life with Games

What would life be without them?

North Korean Arcade

God Bless America (and Japan)

This is what hell would look like for me.

The sad thing is, most of the people in North Korea have no idea that games have advanced so much further than what is in this building. To them these could be absolutely incredible. It is almost kind of amazing to think that we are so spoiled and demand so much from games now, meanwhile the less fortunate could very well be thrilled with 8-bit non-classic games.  It just goes to show you how fast technology has advanced in the past two decades.  What we see as “games of our childhood” could very well be the only games some people in third-world countries will experience in their entire lives, and that’s if they are lucky enough to play any games at all.

    Even those children know the arcade sucks. There wasn’t anyone in there. It seemed rather sterile for an arcade if you ask me.

    I don’t think I’d use sterile. Sterile sounds clean to me. Didn’t look very clean.
