The arcade room was really depressing this year, but I realize that a lot of it was the Con's fault itself. I feel like ACen needs to reconsider how they treat people who bring their machines to the con, I don't want to keep seeing it decrease in size and unique games.
The arcade had double the amount of games as last year and had thirteen games (or versions of a game) that weren't present last year. All of this in a room that was more than double the available space, much better power, and allowed for a more sensible layout in comparison with the Hilton. Seven of those thirteen had either never been to an ACen at all, or haven't been there since 2009. The games that returned exactly as they were last year came back for one of two reasons: They were requested they returned that way, or they have a history of earning large sums of money.
Had we been able to secure a bigger second
truck, we likely would have had seven more games in the room.
