Arcade games machines stole the heart of many with their advent in the late 70’s and early 80’s. In fact, some of those games are still so popular that they have survived the games revolution and are now playable on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and the Nintendo Switch. Because of this popularity, hiring an arcade machine is a choice that many people make for a variety of events or celebrations.

Corporate team building and conferences

Coming in at number one, is corporate team building events or conferences. Believe it or not, arcade games are a great way to get people working together, and supporting one another. They help to break the ice in awkward seminars, and can be fantastic for team-building exercises.
