Video arcades have been a stable of our culture since the early 1970’s, with millions of people playing the games that are found in these venues as they grew up.
Now with many of “Generation X” having grown up and have a place to keep such a machine, classic arcade games have become a highly desired commodity for home use.
While here at PrimeTime Amusements we tend to deal with brand new arcade sales, we have done our share of classic game sales too. In fact, games in this class have become one of our most requested items for purchase. Games we often get requests for include:
- Donkey Kong
- Mortal Kombat (I/II or III)
- Ms. Pac-Man
- NBA Jam
- NFL Blitz
- Street Fighter II
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
- The Simpsons

Classics – Like-New (Refurbished Or Reproduced)
The challenge today is that a limited number of these games were produced back when they were first manufactured. As one example, Ms. Pac-Man is the most manufactured arcade game in history, with 100,000 units made. A vast majority of arcade games were not produced in such numbers – many only had a few thousand and sometimes only a few hundred reproductions made. Fewer have survived 20, 30 or 40+ years of public use.
If you are on the prowl for a game from your childhood, but are finding it difficult to find them, then maybe we can help! PrimeTime Amusements if capable of refurbishing or reproducing classic titles as though they were new. As one example:
