Btw, I realised a difference with my experience... In Greece, *every* arcade cab had a stool in front of it to sit on. Everywhere.

Oh, you lucky guy.
I was just thinking the same. No arcades of any merit anywhere near me. Oh I fondly remember my university days in Torquay. The sea side arcades had Super Pang, Rad Mobile, G-loc amongst the modern stuff, and a whole wall of retro machines. Wow!

Hairdos, Defender arcade... can't you see this hottie with massive assets on both sides ?

Totally my kind of woman, even if I can't see her face value.
