Oh man, it’s 2 pm, and you’re fighting a post-lunch, work-induced urge to nap. What is your remedy? Bathroom break followed by a caffeine fix? Sure, but when you get back to your work space, will you be really refreshed? What if you had a diversion that was a combination of nostalgia, entertainment, logic and fine motor skills? That would be awesome. You might even be more productive when your break is over.
Now, normally we would tell you to come to PLAY Parlour for a few rounds of the Low Voltage (Skee) Lift, or the Aqua-Quixotic Putting Range, but we aren’t quite open yet. So we have a recommendation for you: old school video arcade games. Games like Tetris, Kaboom, Mortal Kombat, and Tron. “But, I can’t drive all the way back in time to the local mini-mart to get my hands on these.” Don’t worry, they’re all right at your fingertips, provided your fingertips are on a computer keyboard (we think chances are good that they are – you got to this blog post somehow). Check out sites like City Arcade that offer these old favorites and more to play on your computer. This site also provides game histories and player ratings.
Whoo, time for a break. With Pac Man. We go way back.
