Arcade games are a type of video game that typically involves fast-paced action and skill-based challenges. Examples of items in this category include classic arcade cabinets, modern mobile games, and online titles. Whether you're a total beginner or an experienced gamer, there is something for everyone in the world of arcade games. Some popular examples include Apple Arcade, a subscription-based service that offers access to over 100 games, and classic cabinets like Pac-Man and Donkey Kong. Arcade1Up is a popular maker of licensed arcade game cabinets. Arcade games were originally a coin-operated entertainment machine typically found in public places such as restaurants, bars and amusement parks, and of course these still exist today. They are usually video games, pinball machines or electromechanical games. The first popular arcade game was "Pong," a simple tennis simulation game released in 1972.
