Coin Game or Arcade Game is an entertaining coin machine commonly installed in public places such as bars, gaming rooms and restaurants. Most arcade games are video games such as electromechanical games, pinball machines, merchandisers, or buyout games. Although the golden age of arcade video games is generally defined as the period beginning in the late 1970s and ending in the mid 1980s. With the exception of a resurgence in the early 1990s, the arcade industry subsequently fell into disrepair in the Western Hemisphere as competing home game consoles such as the Sony PlayStation and Microsoft Xbox increased their graphics and gaming capabilities, and lowered costs. The Eastern Hemisphere maintains a strong slot machine industry.
