Arcade Games Key Features

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.
