A little off topic, but once a year here in San Jose, CA. There's something called California Extreme: http://www.caextreme.org/
which is a convention of classic arcade machine collectors. Basically they rent out an exhibition hall in San Jose and bring all their games set to free play. For $15-$20 you get to play all the arcade games you want, all day, as much as you want. And they're all the original cabinets, which means you don't have to come up with some ridiculous way to play Discs of Tron with the wrong controls.
The only time I've really gotten that "arcade feeling" from my youth in over 20 years.
