100 Obscure Arcade Games – Late 80s Edition!




It’s hard to imagine, but there was a time when the arcades were THE dominant source of video game entertainment; sadly, of the many thousands that were produced, many are long forgotten.

In this video, I’ve collected 100 arcade games which are obscure; maybe because they were never ported to home systems, or maybe they were exclusive to certain territories.

In recent years, you may have seen some of them in “retro compilations”, or even on the Wii Virtual Console. Some of these are more interesting or quirky than “fun” – but there are some real hidden gems in here as well.

In any case, to celebrate, here is a steam key! 9W0H4-QBCAY-WTIDC – as usual, if you claim it, please comment and let us know what it was!
