Steam Weekly High Five: Are arcade games making a come back?

STEAM

I grew up on them so I sure hope so though its a lot easier to carry around a Nintendo Switch than try to find a public arcade with no one on the game you want. Why do I ask? This week we have a couple of games making reference to them with Pac Man survival horror in Infernium and top down scrolling arcade game Fatal Storm. Virtual Reality is up to its typical spacey-sciencey awesomeness but this week it’s Island Time catchign these want-to-go-on-vacation gaming eye’s. Carl sounds like the perfect buddy to be stranded on an island with! Check out our Steam Weekly High Five!
