List of Arcade GamesArcade games are electronic games typically played in public venues such as arcades, amusement parks, and restaurants. They are typically coin-operated and feature simple gameplay mechanics and fast-paced action, designed to be enjoyed in short sessions.

The history of arcade games dates back to the early 20th century, when coin-operated machines were used for various forms of entertainment, such as fortune-telling and music players. In the 1960s and 1970s, these machines were adapted to play simple electronic games such as Pong and Space Invaders, which became extremely popular.

The introduction of microprocessors in the late 1970s and early 1980s allowed for the development of more complex arcade games, such as Pac-Man and Donkey Kong. These games were designed to be challenging and addictive, encouraging players to spend more and more money to achieve higher scores.

In the 1990s, arcade games became more sophisticated and began to incorporate 3D graphics and more complex gameplay mechanics. Games such as Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat introduced competitive multiplayer gameplay and fighting game mechanics, while games such as Daytona USA and Virtua Racing pioneered 3D racing games.

Despite the rise of home gaming consoles in the 1990s and 2000s, arcade games remain popular in many parts of the world, particularly in Asia. Modern arcade games often feature high-end hardware and advanced gameplay mechanics, and can be found in dedicated arcades as well as other public venues.
