I forget what game that I used to play at our 7/11. I remember that my friends and I used to go to some bar to play Asteroids when we were just little kids. They didn't seem to have a problem with it.

Funny, we also had a 7-Eleven where I lived with a gameroom inside. I had the occasional Twinkle, but Snickers and Reeses Pieces were the thing.

Over the course of a few years (games revolving in and out), it was pinball machines (Xenon), Space Invaders, Asteroids, Donkey Kong, Centipede, DigDug, Mrs. Pac Man (that was really big for awhile), Space Invaders, Galaga, etc.

Even now, sometimes when I'm at bars or restaurants, I still see Mrs Pac Man and Galaga....they're usually on the same machine.

Those were the days in the 1980's when you lived moment to moment.
