The holiday season is coming to a close and now it's time to focus on what's important- buying more stuff and figuring out how to somehow fit it in my apartment. While browsing Best Buy deals to give my home theater an upgrade, I noticed that in addition to their slew of Marvel and Star Wars toys, they also have old-school arcade game cabinets, gaming tables, and even pinball machines among their inventory.
What I thought were only accessible in my youth at arcades and pizza parlors were now suddenly (and dangerously) close to ending up in my office. I initially assumed that such classics like Marvel vs Capcom and Mortal Kombat II would cost astronomical amounts and was delighted to learn that these nostalgic titles can be obtained for less than the price of rent.
I've rounded up a few of my favorite movie-related games below, but you can also check out other classics like PAC-MAN, Galaga, and more here.
