Join us for a look at the dramatic rise and fall of arcade games as a presence in our popular culture. Presenter Josh Bycer will walk us through the early rise of modern arcades in the 1970s, their decades in the spotlight, and their eventual collapse in the early 2000s. Look back with us at the "Golden Age" of arcades from the late 70s to early 80s and examine old favorites Space Invaders, Pac-Man, and more.
