Welcome to the Arcade preservation WikiEdit


Remember arcades? We sure do!!

Like coin-operated video and/or pinball games? Want to immortalize the arcades that you played them at, being past and/or present? Well, you can do that here!

Be sure to check out the how to write an article page for guidelines in regards to formatting specifically for this wiki (although it is quite simple as compared to others) and what we are looking for in order to help preserve arcade history.

There have been 152 arcades (and other memories) in six countries preserved since September 14, 2014.

Creating new articlesEdit

Pretty simple stuff, really:

  1. Type up the name of the game room you want to write about in the search box (at top center of this page [next to the magnifying glass]) and hit enter.
  2. Click on the Contribute button at the top right (right next to the page total), click on Add new page, then type in the name of your game room in the Write your page title here area and hit Enter to start the article.

And that's pretty much it! There's more to that though, of course, which can be seen in the how to write an article page, plus the head admin can be contacted at his talk page if you have any questions in regards to preserving arcade history.

Featured arcade of the month

Ronald James "Dio" Padavona was born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, to Italian-American parents from Cortland, New York. He listened to a great deal of opera while growing up, and was influenced vocally by American tenor Mario Lanza. It was during high school that Padavona formed his first rock-n-roll group, The Vegas Kings. He would later change his name to Ronnie James Dio and would switch to singing hard rock/heavy metal in 1975 with the groups Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Heaven and Hell and Dio.

A single and video was released for the title track of the second Dio album entitled The Last in Line. An arcade was briefly shown during the video. (The rest of the article can be seen here.)
