SEEEEEGAAAAAAA… Adventure in Club Sega
Seeing the word “SEGA” from the street brought so much excitement to me on day two. Who knew walking into the building would be even better. There are six mega floors with so much gaming anyone could spend a whole day and a large sum of money. On the first floor you have some lobster crane machines and photo booths. I did not spend a lot of time on this floor for there was more awaiting on five more floors. On the second floor there were more lobster crane machines and some racer arcade games. Most people on this floor were there to play the crane machines where they could win many anime printed prizes from pillows to blankets and figurines. The favorite prize seemed like the anime mouse pad that had large boobs as a wrist rest. A few of the boys tried the game but walked away empty handed. The third floor is full of photo booths and a section where girls can dress up in outfits for the photo booths. I wish that I could take a picture of the floor, but not cameras allowed. I spent a lot of time on this floor dressing up with Jessica and Francesca and figuring out the photo booths. The next floor, the fourth is full of arcade games from very old sega to very new. Allan and Zach spent some time on this floor playing fighting games.
On the last two floors were full of RPG (Role-Playing-Games) and simulation games. Gamers who are into RPGs seem to spend a lot time there because they require you to buy cards to save your games and come back for more. Overall the place was massive and amazing, not like anything we would see over in America. In my hometown in metropolitan Detroit I don’t know of any arcades of this stature or arcades in general (I guess unless I was an intense gamer). But I know of a few places in the Lansing area where people can game. One of those places is Pinball Pete’s, but I doesn’t even compare to Club Sega. Gaming arcades are rare here, Americans rather sit in the comfort of their own homes and game either with friends there with them or through online gaming. If Club Sega was to ever exist over here I don’t think it will ever amount to the status over in Japan.
