What You'll Get
In the future, tech-trapped society's most thrilling game will be to unplug from the Massivetrix to experience the reality of traffic, eating sandwiches, and laundry. Prepare for a time when video-gamers rule the world with today's deal: for $12, you get three hours of glorious video-gaming-on-big-screens action and a $5 voucher for snacks at the Ultimate Gaming Zone in Lakeforest Mall, a $29 total value. Though Ultimate, the largest such game hall in the tri-state area, is good for 35-year-old adult friends with 12 years of gaming experience in artificial footballing, shooting, or guitaring, it's also an ideal place to bring the kids to help them develop invaluable thumb strength and problem-solving skills.
This state-of-the-art facility just opened in 2009, so you can expect shiny new Wii, XBOX 360, and PS3 consoles free of peanut butter and congealed orange soda. These systems are loaded with more than 100 top titles, such as Super Street Fighter 2, Tekken 6, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, DJ Hero, Guitar Hero 5, Madden 2010 and Left 4 Dead 2, among others. Because you can play multiple games on your three-hour Groupon, this is a great way to try several new titles for less than it costs to rent at a store or to create your own copy using your home PC and several notable voice actors. There are also cash-prize tournaments, so you can finally prove to doubters that it is both a legitimate sport and career option (this Groupon does not include tournament fees).
Meanwhile, tap into the $5 food voucher to recover the energy required to make it through hours of intense concentration, or as an excuse to take a break from video-game domination and cool down your thumbs in an Icee. Because of Ultimate's malltastic locale, you can do some shopping before or after virtual battles, or drop off your grown-up child in a supervised video-gaming environment while you buy him or her a new blazer at a Lakeforest Mall store.
