J' aime vu une Ghostbusters Pro sur Kijiji à 6500$. Ça semble un prix correct? La game est dure mais j' aime assez bien., Celle sur kijiji à l'aire correcte, malgré qu'aucune photo du cabinet n'est affichée, et la machine était dans une arcade pendant du temps... donc condition à valider.

Re: The history of crossbow arcade documentary

Exidy made bad ass games in the 70's and 80s (Death Race, Crossbow, Cheyenne, Chiller, etc...)
I used to play Crossbow at Pinnochio... I seem to remember burning through a credit very quickly.

Thanks for the video Pat!

Re: Amusement arcades in downtown Montreal, circa 1980s.

Some more pictures for the archives.
I can't say that I had a favorite downtown arcade... I would often hit 3 or 4 different ones on a Friday night. Loved the choices we were offered.

Re: The history of punch out arcade documentary

The arcade at the back, closer to Carson Ave.? If so yeah, great dingy arcade. Yup, that's it. Not a lot of people remember that place. In elementary school, the teachers used to tell us that we were forbidden to go there during lunch hour. Didn't stop us... can't keep an 11-12 year old kid out of ...
