Celebrate the greatness that is coin-operated gaming by checking out all of these modern arcade cabinet remixes.

The arcade is a symbol of a lost time. Sure, there are still many arcades in existence today, but they are not frequented nearly as much as they used to be. While it's great to be able to game at home, there's nothing quite like dominating a video game or your friend in public at a cost of $1.00 per game.

Despite the arcade's drop in popularity, the popularity of the game machines themselves hasn't dwindled. These awesome arcade cabinet reinterpretations run the gamut from kegs to alarm clocks and prove that while the arcade may be a thing of the past, its machines live on in the hearts and minds of gamers everywhere.
