This morning I visited an arcade game shop in Paris and bought a Nintendo history book by a french man called Florent Georges. Galaga was my favorite arcade game when I was a teenager. During holidays, I used to play it in Uzès, in a bar called Bengali and when I was back to Mulhouse, I used to go in an arcade game center called Le Manhattan, a huge room filled with video games & flippers (pinball machines). I could play Galaga for about one hour with only 1 franc, which was a very cheap otium; I was the best in town! Jean-Jacques Perrey spirit must have been very inspirational for early video games music. An arcadisiac year 2009 for all!
