The wayback machine videos for today are…

May 9, 2010

It’s Sunday so in lieu of news, we have videos to point out. I’m not sure why it seems like we’re getting a lot of videos of arcades from the early 80’s showing up all of the sudden but I welcome it as it offers a deeper glimpse into that great Golden Age of games. Today we have a few videos from youtube user Atarigames1. He has a lot of old footage that he has begun to upload, including this look at an arcade in Mt. View California and some kids hanging out around some machines at a 7-11 in 1981. I remember when all 7-11’s in my area had at least two games, then one day they dumped them in favor of ATM machines.The third video shows the assembly line for San Fransico Rush.
