For this list, we’re looking at the best games from the 2000’s to today in terms of commercial and critical success and their ability to draw crowds to the arcade despite the business’ failing interest. To be clear, we’re not counting Xbox Live Arcade games or any other form of online entertainment. The game needs to actually be played in an arcade to be eligible.

  1. There was a Mario Kart Arcade game?! I never got to play this! ☹️ also i think need for speed underground shoulda been on this list , it was on console but it did have a arcade version that was soo much better . Street fighters II was on console but still made the list for the 90’s list 😅

  2. If you guys want to check out some cool really old school arcade retro games then come over and check them out.

  3. There's now Time Crisis 5 playable on PC, and lots of other arcade games that came out wihin the last few years that can emulated by either Teknoparrot or on their own. There was a new Ninja Turtles arcade that came out in 2018, but it's not playable on PC yet.

  4. A movie theatre in Kamloops, BC, Canada used to have a DDR game…and, get this, it was the original Japanese version (the text in the demo tutorial was in Japanese) and of course the theatre has standard North American outlets so I have no idea how they managed to install it and get it going

  5. Lucky and Wild, Mad Dog McCree, Police 911!

  6. What the fuck is Star Wars Battle Pod doing here. Easy as fuck game where you look at things and they die. But uh oh, if you look at things too slowly, you get hit. Doesn't have the same engagement as a normal rail shooter.

  7. Really disappointed hydro thunder wasn’t in any of these just even as a honorable mention

  8. With a list like this no wonder the arcades have gone to hell.
    The games that I had in the 80's were a lot better.
    I think I'll see if my Tandy Color computer 3 still works.

  9. Beatmania 3? Seriously? That's better than any of the IIDX entries that were released in the last 2 decades? … Do your research. IIDX IS probably a top modern arcade game, but Beatmania is an outdated version that no one cares to really think about anymore.

  10. Arctic Thunder was one of my favorite arcade games growing up.

  11. Star Wars Battle Pod can be purchased for £12,995.00 – maybe PS4 then 😉
