Ten Favorite Arcades in Metro Phoenix

Once upon a time, mom-and-pop pizzerias across the Valley hosted arcade games aplenty for patrons to tackle after hastily wiping excess grease of their mitts while cheesy rock hits blared over a boombox. Such a scene has sadly become a product of the past, which is one of the reasons why we did this uniquely shaped throwback pizza place in Mesa.

The back room of the A-frame structure (which was built the '70s as an old Village Inn Pizzeria) contains more than a dozen vintage arcade units like Choplifter, Galaga '88, and Asteroids. The owners have also decorated the room with various bits of Pac-Man memorabilia and other video game ephemera. It may not be as flashy or frenetic as other places around town, but its definitely one of our favorites.

Astroid which should have been called Hemorrhoids considering it was based on the Hemisphere.
