Shock - Lizzie on a Rampage

For years I regularly complained about those stupid bar video games that were so ubiquitous in the late 90’s and 00’s, when a classic arcade game would have been abundantly better. I dreamed of a bar that was like the classic video arcade that I grew up with in the 80’s and early 90’s, but with alcohol. Now that I am married, have have kids, and pretty much never go to bars, all of a sudden bar arcades, or barcades are the next big thing. The original video arcades were an amazing place, and an amazing waste of money, but even now I think of them very fondly. I watched as the arcade world changed with the times, only to be recently relegated to locations for adolescent birthday parties. Now with the barcade scene, grownups can relive the glory of the 80’s arcade world, unless you are married with children.
