I was rooting through all my old issues of Edge’s this week and came across this great article about the arcade industry in the late nineties. This was also the period when Edge covered arcades a hell of a lot more than they do today. They even had a review section just for arcade games! Granted it was only two pages, but to be fair there are less arcade games out there than console ones.

Just click on the thumbnails to enlarge the scans and read away. I will be going through all my Edges now and finding all I can on arcades. Think of it as our retro look back, except it’s not ours, it’s Edge’s! (better link to them twice seeing as they done all the work 🙂 )

    Hey, why not look at my previous commission for Edge, their 2003 Arcade coverage – then you have their full set. I hear they are pissed over the interest in the arcade feature, and having to admit it was out of house – wonder if they will approach you guys to do it for them next time 🙂
