Not a restaurant with giant arcade games in it. But a bar/restaurant with plasma screens, PS3/360 and PC gaming inside. Like say a bar but on the walls are 50 flatscreens everywhere and they are playing 360/ps3.

Or a PC gaming cafe mixed with a bar

I don't see how this would be any different. Nobody goes to bars to play games that they could play at home.

well it's kinda hard to eat and play at the same time. plus how long would the customers be able to stay? what games would they be able to play? also content on games isnt appropriate for all ages. to have a game in a public place might expose inappropriate content to young children. there would be way too many problems with the idea.

Ithink you are missing the point. Nobody would ever want to play console's at a bar/etc. Their is one of these in a mall near me almost exactly as you described. Guess what? It's EMPTY! All the time. Why would you want to play consoles without you own gamertag or psn account? Extremely pointless. People go to Dave&Busters(awesome place : ) ) to play those "old" arcade games because they are arcade style and are ment to be their. And yes I'd love to play them.
