Arcade games have short learning curves and simple
levels. These games have been designed to inject the
quick bursts of adrenaline rushes; unlike the console
games which are about in-depth game play and well
scripted story lines.
Apparently, the reason being that a player is
essentially renting an arcade game for as long as
their virtual entity stays alive. The game titles in
PC’s or consoles can also be termed as the ‘arcade
game’ if it shares the same qualities.
The arcade racing games feature a simplified physics
engine and preserve certain action. The effects are
not always pragmatic; as you can turn sharply without
drifting or losing control.
Arcade racing games used a simple Rubberband A.I.
system. The system is programmed so that you don’t get
left far behind or move ahead of the rest.
Arcade flight games are highly simplified when
compared to flight simulators. These games are facing
a steady resurgence with people increasingly favoring
action over reality.
The recent success of games like Crimson Tide and
Secret weapons over Normandy attest this phenomenon.
The simple game play also makes the arcade games super
addictive. Arcade classics like Street Fighter, Mortal
Kombat and King of Fighters were built on simple game
They were often related to mindless thrashing of the
joystick and buttons. Even newer titles like Tekken
and Dead or Alive with highly detailed game play and
graphics are unable to overthrow these classics.
