Having an arcade machine at home is a dream come true for gamers. They get to enjoy unlimited plays of their favorite games without having to spend on tokens/coins. Aside from that, they’re more relaxed to play in the comfort of their home as arcades can get crowded and noisy especially during weekends.

Instead of collecting tokens/coins so you can play in the arcade, why not use the money to invest in a home arcade machine of your own? It’s also safer as you don't need to keep going out of the house to play. You can enjoy your favorite game in your own time and in private, but if you want to invite friends over, then this will definitely keep you entertained.

If you’re looking for an arcade machine which has various games and does not take up too much home space, here’s a list of the seven best arcade game machines which you can find on Adorama.
