Beating a videogame is like dunking a basketball over a two-year-old: it’s a satisfying experience, but the trash-talk it inspires is disappointingly one-sided. Indulge in solitary satisfaction with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one all-day gaming pass at Arcadia Evolutions in Newport News (up to a $20 value).
Arcadia Evolutions enthuses joystick jockeys of all dedication levels with more than 1,000 game titles, as well as multiplayer games boosted by high-speed Internet, high-definition television screens and computer monitors, and a variety of vintage and current gaming consoles. An all-day gaming pass grants avatar aficionados with unlimited game play on current consoles such as Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, and PS3, as well as retro machines that require human breath-blowing and other old-school tricks to remain in operating order. The gaming mecca houses multiple copies of each game to avoid long Paperboy lines and to encourage identical twins to creepily play Castlevania in tandem. Business hours stretch into late-night territory, allowing thumb athletes to swap hand-callus horror stories anytime between 10 a.m. and 12 a.m. on weekends, or 10 p.m. on weeknights.
