Games on consoles or PCs can be referred to as “arcade games” if they share these qualities or are direct ports of arcade titles. Many independent developers are now producing games in the arcade genre that are designed specifically for use on the Internet. These games are usually designed with Flash/Java/DHTML and run directly in web browsers.
Arcade games frequently have more immersive and realistic game controls
than either PC or console games, including specialized ambiance or control accessories: Fully enclosed dynamic cabinets with force feedback controls, dedicated lightguns, rear projection displays, reproductions of automobile or airplane cockpits, motorcycle or horse shaped controllers, or highly dedicated controllers such as dancing mats and fishing rods. These accessories are usually what set modern video games apart from other games, as they are usually too bulky, expensive, and specialized to be used with typical home PCs and consoles.
Arcade games are currently being downloaded
and emulated through the Nintendo Wii Virtual Console Service starting in 2009 with Gaplus, Mappy, Space Harrier, Star Force, The Tower of Druaga, Tecmo Bowl, Altered Beast and many more. Other classic arcade games such as Asteroids, Tron, Discs of Tron, Yie Ar Kung Fu, Pac Man, Joust, Battlezone, Dig Dug, Robotron: 2084, and Missile Command are emulated on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. Racing games are another soft spot of mine as I admit to being very competitive. The first time I have played something with cars and racing was Micro Machines, a fun micro car game that got me interested in the genre. Moving along I discovered Top Gear on my SNES and that only reinforced the love. But that’s in the past. This genre got a lot of improvement over the years, not only with graphics but also with the more and more realistic feel you get when you control your car.
