With its heartbreaking allusions to England's colonialist past, Data East's Jungle Dad vs King Gobbler II: Sins of the Father proved that video games can be high art. Appreciate an art form that encourages button-mashing with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a punch card for five hours of gaming at Hi Score in Chesapeake (a $20 value).
With HDTVs, top-of-the-line gamer chairs, and walls painted a bombastic shade of Xbox green, Hi Score is the ultimate sanctuary for gaming enthusiasts who are sick of getting Call of Duty kill streaks ruined by interloping little sisters, roommates, and door-to-door chorizo salesmen. Hi Score offers all of the current gen systems (Xbox 360, PS3, Wii) and more than 400 games, including blockbuster hits such as Halo 3, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and Madden NFL and cult favorites Panzer Dragoon, Space Channel 5, and A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia. Hi Score's collection of retro consoles, reaching as far back as the Atari 2600, are perfect for helping old-timers and new-bloods bond over a mutual hatred of the condescending hunting dog in the Nintendo classic Duck Hunt.
Those tired of headshots and fireballs needn't look beyond Hi Score's extensive collection of music-and-rhythm games and equipment, including Rock Band 2, Boogie, Guitar Hero III, and Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party. Hi Score invites players to bring memory cards and Xbox 360 hard drives from home, but also provides Xbox Live guest accounts for those simply looking for a quick Modern Warfare fix.
