There's something that ages you when you watch a YouTube video of an arcade game you played in college. Speaking of memories, my friend Kelly and I also braved the famous Northland Mall crowds of northern Columbus, Ohio that same Christmas break in 1985. Despite police warnings about the crowds, we went down to watch a movie. I believe it was Jewel of the Nile. While waiting, we pumped about 20.00 worth of quarters into this fun little video excursion. As usual, I was the weak link of the chain, and usually the reason for the need for extra quarters.
I guess YouTube will have to do. The arcade game, like the arcade and the mall that housed it, has long since passed from the scene.
