The problem with opening arcades now, AS SWEET AS ARCADES TEND TO BE, driving somewhere and paying money for games i already have is kinda a waste. this isn't really just a personal opinion, I would say it persists for anyone that would be interested in going.

Is this like somebody's house or like a building you guys are renting or what? And how many people are showing up?

It's a PUBLIC FORUM. This isn't your space!
As for their pipe dream...guys, just let them try...it's their money they're wasting. They don't seem to care about flushing money down the toilet, so who are we to judge?
Fight Club and HoG are practically arcades without the payment. Go figure, right? Practically free, and yet still a social gathering with great competition? Hmmmm...sounds pretty successful IMO.
I suggest the OP to just use whatever money they have now and buy a nice entertainment center and host games.

Or you can be transparent and let the public know the process that goes down. It's better for the community, gives the public peace of mind, and prevents possible shadiness.

Yeah I can and respect that, right now we have ran into a stump but recently picked up some more partners. So right now I can't offer any info until saturday, but keep in touch. Ohh and I will be deleting this thread due to some salty people, "Farm". So add me to friends or what not, but thanks for all the help most people presented!

Don't get me wrong, I'm not salty by any means. I met you at fight club and you're a cool guy, but Imma call it as I see it, just like I would to anyone else I know.

Being on this site for almost a decade and all I figured I'd put my 2 cents in.
Don't get too offended by these people. Its the nature of online personalities. Rash and rude. However they aren't completely wrong in saying that it probably wouldn't work out too well for you guys. You say that your not trying to make money but that alone will make it not work. No one in their right mind will work a secondary job to support another one. Makes no sense. Why give up a life? That being said I'll restate something that was already mentioned or somewhat mentioned or along the lines of being mentioned. Back then a big part of going to the arcades as a fighting gamer was for competition. After the good and bad players were set apart and teh tiers were established alot of the casual players stopped coming around and the players that were good happened to become friends and get together to play more often. When you want to practice something would you want to pop quarters in each play? We used to travel to different spots to "challenge" different clicks. As I said earlier the hardcore of each group gradually started playing with each other. The others stuck to their own little spot or gameworks to collect win streaks on scrubs. Animation Town was great but then it started becoming "ugh why go there to play those guys? lets go to my place and just play each other"
Realistically speaking I'd only support it maybe an hour a week. Unless there was some hella hot shit goin on and I think everyone else around here thats on the forum would do less than that. We're hella old now so there are way more things we have to do or would rather do. If you average maybe 30 or us that would support about an hour minimum playing time would you guys be able to sustain?
The serious players will only show up every once in awhile to see if any newcomers have potential. Or to collect wins and feel good bout themselves.
But it could work out if you just target casual traffic and just gave a couple games for the hardcore or hardcore to be. I would say aim for something around Montgomery Square. That place is hella poppin right now. Also its somewhat close to a high school and off the highway. They have Dukes, Buffalo Wild Wings, and this sushi place. I don't think your arcade would work out unless its around something most people go to get chicks or something. I mean isn't the location you guys are talkin about close to a Putt Putt off 820? Aim for Euless something off 183 and close to 360. If you guys were ever gonna try and have a big tourney it would be close to the airport as well.
Eh this is all I feel like typing, If I see you guys at fight club friday I'll explain a little bout the history of the scene and what not and what could have possibly been done. To Roger's credit tho his spots ended up becoming dead malls. ALL THREE of them. NO wait FOUR. I think if you could afford it Galleria probably would be ideal but even then that wouldn't make sense. The demographic there isn't too young.
