Any arcades near where you guys live?
There's actually quite a few arcades near me in the Chicagoland area. The closest one to me is a Gameworks, but it's pretty expensive and they mostly have the newer games, but they have a few classics from the early 80's. Another arcade near me is called "Nickel City", where you use nickels instead of quarters. I haven't been to Nickel City in a while so I can't say much about it.

There's also an arcade called "Rinkside Sports" in Gurnee Mills, which is a mall somewhere in Gurnee. The selection is alright. They did use to have Sengoku 3 a few years ago, but that's gonefor a while now.

However, there's one really great arcade called "The Galloping Ghost." I went there for my 18th birthday earlier today and all I can say is, it's one of the best arcades around. They got so many games ranging from the early 80's classics, the games in the mid to late 80's, the 90's, and the newest games. They even have some rare games such as Ninja Baseball Batman for example.
Sadly the nearest arcade of any kind to me is about 60 miles away in Newcastle Metrocentre, the Namco Funscape. It just has the usual Out Run 2, Deadstorm Pirates, and various dance games. The bowling alley near where I live just has Time Crisis 3 I think and Mariokart.

I really miss the 90s, going to seaside arcades to check the new games out.
You're lucky to have some arcades close to you Mark. Sounds like they've got a good line-up of games too. I'd be interested to hear which games you played at these places. STE I wish I could find an arcade with Deadstorm Pirates. Superb game.

No arcades here in Lincoln unfortunately. I did read that there's a decent arcade in Nottingham which is about an hour away by train. No idea if it's still around. I imagine there will probably be some arcade cabs in resort towns on the Lincolnshire coast like Skegness and Mablethorpe. I went last year to the Casino arcade in London. They have a great selection of games there including Progear, Mushihime-sama and Darius Burst. Looking forward to going back there this year.
