100 YEN: The Japanese Arcade Experience Trailer

Despite the relative scarcity of video game arcades across the globe, some corners of the world

By //Fashion

Despite the relative scarcity of video game arcades across the globe, some corners of the world have seen the continuation of the phenomenon including Japan. In an upcoming documentary by Brad Crawford and Bryan Verot, the two explore the societal relationship between video games and the general public and why it has been able to continue to thrive. While the Japanese economy continues to suffer, perhaps the relatively affordable nature of dropping 100 JPY (approximately $1.22 USD) for the average Japanese citizen is a cornerstone of its ongoing success. More information on 100 YEN: The Japanese Arcade Experience can be seen over at their IndieGoGo site.
