The arcade game, a coin-operated machine

An arcade game is a coin-operated (but sometimes also bill-operated or card-operated) entertainment machine, usually installed in public businesses such as restaurants, public houses, arcades... Most arcade games are: coin-operated video games, redemption games, pinballs, casino games including slot machines, pokie machines or pokies, pachislots, pachinkos. Also bat games, bingos, gun games, bowlers/shuffle alleys, jukeboxes, trade stimulators, strength testers, kiddie rides, allwins, working models, pool tables, viewers, shockers & more...

In addition to restaurants and arcades, arcade games were also found in bowling alleys, college campuses, dormitories, laundromats, movie theaters, supermarkets, shopping malls, airports, truck stops, bar/pubs, hotels, and even bakeries. In short, coin-operated arcade games are popular in places open to the public where people are likely to have free time. First popular arcade games were early amusement park games such as shooting galleries, ball toss games, also earliest coin-operated machines, such as fortune tellers, strength testers or played mechanical music.

Arcade video games are often composed of short levels, intuitive control mechanisms with a rising difficulty. This is the main concept of an arcade video game in which the player is essentially obliged to pay to maintain the play. An arcade game has, as its main feature, the impossibility for the player to win. "The game ends invariably to overwhelm the player, by becoming unplayable, and overcome by saturating the capacity of the player. An arcade video game is based on the fundamental principle of the player's overflow by the game". A console or computer game can be considered as an arcade game if this game shares same qualities (or if the game is a direct port of the original arcade title).

The video games, our childhood's passion...

A video game is an electronic game that involves human interaction with a user interface to generate visual feedback on a video device. The word video in video game traditionally referred to a raster display device, but it now implies any type of display device that can produce two- or three-dimensional images. The electronic systems used to play video games are known as platforms; examples of these are personal computers (computer software), consoles (console video games). These platforms range from large mainframe computers to small handheld devices.

In most recent times there has been huge growth in mobile gaming with more readily available portable devices such as smartphones and tablet computers.

The history of video games goes as far back as the early 1950s, when academics began designing simple games, simulations, and artificial intelligence programs as part of their computer science research. Video gaming would not reach mainstream popularity until the 1970s and 1980s, when arcade video games, gaming consoles and home computer games were introduced to the general public. Since then, video gaming has become a popular form of entertainment, a part of modern culture in most parts of the world.
