I'm going to say something that will silence the sharks reading my post:

John, you reading this?

you need to , damn I wish I could patent this idea..

but, you need to make arcades make a comeback to the scene.

What I'm saying is this: Asia seems to have unlimited supply of raw materials because they are DUMPING electronic shit onto the masses, risking selling only 20% of their production, while the other 80% gets into a landfill, so clearly that is not an issue to get hardware out to us.

What we need is dedicated ROM to dedicated games. Let the wave recommence. It;s time to bring out the next gen Arcades, where one game, a great game! a John Carmack game! is to be written to his own custom made hardware,

Fuck Sony, Fuck Nintendo, and Fuck Microsoft, get your own hardware OS!

You have trillions of dollars of cash pouring in, whereas kickstarter is merely a gratuity (tip) to this available money that the gaming industry now has.


Arcades time came and went. They are quite frankly not convenient to any one but the publisher/distributor. Gaming is too diverse at this point that you can't crowd all those types a game in a gaming center like you used to do in the 80's and mid 90's. People want to play games on their terms.

Now for specialty and novelty games (motion control/3d/etc) or experience "ride" units those will always have a niche market in malls and movie theaters.
