Yeah, I think cost has a lot to do with why stand up coin operated
arcade machines are on the decline. They are still around, but I often
don't let my son play them because they cost too much to play very many
games. I've seen some that are like 50 cents and plenty of games that
costs as much as a dollar per game. For that price back in the 1980's I
could have had four games for the price of one. Now, that I am the
responcible adult I can't see throwing money away on arcade games. It
would be different if they were still 25 cents and I could buy four
games for a dollar instead of one game for a dollar.

Those games aren't fun any more because of the price.
