The History of The Arcade Game – With Bespoke Arcades

As technological advances and constant developments in the world of gaming bring virtual entertainment to new levels, the leading supplier of arcade machines, Bespoke Arcades take a look back at the legacy of the craft.

The first arcade games were seen in the 1920s in amusement parks such as Coney Island in New York. Ball-toss games and shooting galleries were the earliest form of the pastime, but soon progressed to include coin-op machines which would give a fortune reading, or play mechanical music.  In the 1930s, the first pinball machine was created, and worked on a set of springs and magnets, a far cry from the electric pinball machines that would replace it in the early 1970s.

In 1971, the first incarnation of an electronic coin-op game was invented by American university students. Not long after, Atari was established and brought video arcade games such as Pacman, Space Invaders and Donkey Kong to shopping centres, cinemas and bars all over America and the UK. The craze was to live well through to the 1990s.

Phil Patsias, from Bespoke Arcades, the firm which provides high quality arcade machines and arcade cabinets, said, “I remember playing these games when I was young and being mesmerised by how entertaining they were. The games and technology may have changed, but at Bespoke Arcades, we are still as passionate about video arcades games as ever.”

As enhancements were made in the field of gaming, home entertainment systems became common, with multiple-player gaming bringing together groups of friends for whole days at a time.

Mr Patsias added, “While small and compact is sometimes best, when it comes to video arcade games, nothing beats our range of games and arcade cabinets.

This is how they were meant to be enjoyed, and with Bespoke Arcades, the gaming is just as beautiful as it can get. The casing is nothing short of pure excellence and luxury.”

The firm’s range of innovative gaming solutions have earned them pages in major publications, and the arcade machines themselves have taken prime spot in many celebrities’ homes.

Mr Patsias added, “As we provide an entirely bespoke service, each arcade game is made to your specific requirements and desires. Products like our Synergy table were fantasy consoles of your childhood, but with our service can easily become a reality.”
