My Favorite Arcade Game

I have never been a gamer or even good at video games. It is funny because I have always enjoyed going to arcades. There is one that I will spend all my time at. That is pinball. I can play with those machines for hours. You will find me with a big smile on my face.

The Greatest Arcade Game Of All Time

There are so many amazing games in the history of arcades. The competition is fierce for the top spot but for my quarters, Pinball is the greatest. To me, there is so much action in the game. It really keeps you on your feet. Plus, I am not horrible at it, which is a bonus.
