There’s been a steady decline on arcades in America and probably the rest of the world (except for Japan). Maybe a few arcades exist on waiting areas at the airport, movie theaters, laundromats, etc.. A documentary about the last great arcade here NYC called Arcade: The Last Night at Chinatown Fair is being made after a successful fund raiser that ended on May 31st of this year. Chinatown Fair closed its doors in February of this year after 50 years of operation.
