|Yep, it's an Arcade and it's a Bar rolled into one.|
So, not only was I like a kid in a candy store (a dirty old kid mind you because the eye candy was pretty amazing as well) but I got even more giddy as I saw the games of my youth everywhere. Pac-Man, Ms Pac-Man (I spent more time on this machine than any other), Glaga, Astroids, Metal Slug (Player 1's "action" button is broken sadly) Street Fighter (various forms), Burger Time and too many others to mention. It was pure awesome and I didn't even bother to check out the individualized booths where you pick the system you want to play and go from there.
Surrounding the bar are a bunch of large flat screen TV's which are mostly showing video game action that is going on in the Lounge as you watch. I watched a few matches of Street Fighter X Tekken and will just say that even though I am no fighter expert the one dude was pretty bloody awful. Other screens showed some great footage of NBA 2k12 and some Madden. I think I had a nerd hard-on the entire time I was there.
With such diversity inside the lounge I got to see a wide range of "groups" that showed up as well. There were people there only to drink and dance, there were people just chilling with friends and there were those like me wondering around wide-eyed and bushy-tailed from machine to machine trying to decide where to stick my quarters next. I cannot wait to go back as I'm still in awe of what I saw.
Not only that, but being that yesterday was the 1st time I ever went I also got to attend their 365th day celebration. That's right, yesterday was the 1 year anniversary of them opening this mecca of awesomeness which I will now devote a bigger percentage of my life to (and my quarters).
Insertcoins - you have built something that I never knew I longed for - everyone from my generation sits with jaws dropped at this splendid idea. Congratulations to my new favorite spot in Vegas!
