The advent of technology made these traditional gaming machines a liability and inconvenient. Cheap and updated computers with superb graphics were a delight to play on, rather than the outdated and expensive arcades.

The exciting new additions in the traditional way of arcade gaming will definitely bring them out of their declining phase and make them popular again.
