Home and Arcade Games

Since the first Microcomputers, Arcade Games and gaming have always been linked

in some fashion to the world of BBSs. It would make sense that if people used

computers to play, they'd be attracted to machines who were dedicated to nothing

but playing games.

The parallel lines of arcade games and home-based "console" systems didn't meet

with complete full-on force until the 1990's (where they're essentially the same

thing and considered the same product) and for a long time the nature of the

two cultures were inherently different.

If you're looking for things like card games, sports, or other recreational

activites (except for <A HREF="/sex">sex</A>) I'd suggest looking for them in the

<A HREF="/fun">Fun</A> section.
