10 Best Arcade Games

Arcade machines made the video game industry a lot more vibrant back in the older days. Since almost no one had a console or PC in their home, they had to travel to an establishment with an arcade cabinet for entertainment. Within the arcade cabinets, people competed against each other, trying to leave their mark on the high scores. As time went by, we got to see games like Street Fighter, Space Invader. Donkey Kong and Dragon's Lair. Nowadays, gamers get to experience new versions of those games in the comforts of their own homes, be it through Steam, the Apple Arcade on their iPhone, or consoles like Nintendo Switch.
