One of the interesting things about the days of video game arcades was so little control over what games you had access to. Visiting an arcade in the next town over was a big deal, because they had different games than the convenience stores in my small town. I remember when I first encountered The Dragon's Lair, at a huge arcade while on vacation, plus all the other older games that I'd never seen. Sometimes there was a feeling of "play all I can now, because who knows when I'll see it next."
