The Sega Model 2 hardware was designed by design legend Yu Suzuki and powered some of the most successful arcade games of all time including Daytona USA, Virtua Cop, Sega Rally, Virtual Fighter 2, Dead Or Alive, Gunblade NY, Virtual On and many other stellar games. This is the official logo for the hardware that you can now enjoy as a design.
Back in the 1970s, before the CPU was a 'thing', video games had to be designed using TTL discrete logic chips. Famous games like PONG & Space Invaders used the technology, as did the games on this design: Computer Space(Nutting), Breakout(Atari), Biplane(Allied), Gunfight(Midway) and Space Launcher (Nintendo)
Sundance was a video arcade game released by Cinematronics in 1979. It didn't sell very well and is extremely rare - enough that when one was found in an abandoned cabin in California, collectors went crazy over it and values pushed above the $13k mark. This shirt simply pays homage to the unusual sun/fireball catching game that it was.
Another simplistic design. This is the typical 4-player arcade cabinet you have probably played a few games on. Based on Konami's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles but the design supported many other awesome beat 'em up games.
Not every video game developed for the arcade world has come to consoles. Some have stayed in the realm of the arcade, either due to licensing, lack of interest on the home side, or they used hardware in a way that made a console translation sub-par. Celebrate the games that are arcade exclusive with this design!
Originally designed for some bumper stickers I made, requests were that this was made into a T-Shirt - so here you go! Perfect for arcade owners/collectors/fans or those wanting to own an arcade machine one day!
Playing on a previous shirt design while also playing on a famous lyric from an old rap song - In this case, I like BIG GAMES and I Cannot Lie.
Arcade games are where you find games going big and generally its the biggest games that get played the most in arcades out there. So in terms of popularity, the public likes big games too!
A variation on the I 'Heart' Arcade shirt uploaded earlier, this one expresses the sentiment for twin sitdown arcade racing games(particularly from Sega's Daytona USA), which have also enjoyed great popularity on the market over the years.
Not all video arcade games are released to home consoles. Some find that good, some find that bad, no matter which boat you are in you can enjoy showing off your appreciation of those games that find their exclusive home at the arcade with this great T-Shirt!
1983 - it was a dark time in the realm of video games. People stopped buying games like they had been and that ended up causing a lot of companies to fold. Granted, that did weed out a lot of those that sucked and gave way to the Japanese revolution a short time later. Tell everyone how you survived those dark times with this T-Shirt!
