An arcade game (or coin-op) is a coin-operated entertainment machine, usually installed in
public businesses, such as restaurants, bars, and particularly amusement arcades. Most
arcade games are video games, pinball machines, electro-mechanical games, redemption games,
and merchandisers (such as claw cranes).
The golden age of arcade video games lasted from the late 1970s to the mid-1990s. While
arcade games were still relatively popular during the late 1990s, the entertainment medium
saw a continuous decline in popularity in the Western hemisphere when home-based video game
consoles made the transition from 2D graphics to 3D graphics. Despite this, arcades remain
popular in many parts of Asia as late as the early 2010s.
The term "arcade game" is also, in recent times, used to refer to a video game that was
designed to look like a classic arcade game (adopting an isometric view, 2D graphics,
scores, lives, etc.) but instead released on platforms such as XBLA or PC.
