So arcades are largely a thing of the past, at least here in the west. However they were a pretty big deal even as recently as the late 90s and early 2000s.
I have fond memories of playing the Star Wars Trilogy Arcade while stuck on P&O and Stena Line ferry trips as a kid. A 3D on-rails shooter released in 1998 which probably captured the feel of the original films better than any Star Wars game made since.
Never managed to complete it of course since it cost £1 a go, but you basically had three stages covering A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. You got to take part in the battle of Yavin and the climactic trench run, the battle of Hoth, the speeder bike chase through the forests of Endor as well as lightsaber boss battles against Boba Fett and Darth Vader!
How about you folks, which arcade game did you like the best?
