Must be a day ending in y, yet another story about a Chuck E Cheese fight. Why can't they be nearly half as cool as they were only 30 years ago, with wall to wall games?

I'm talking stuff like Black Widow, Buck Rogers Planet of Zoom, Super Zaxxon, Dig Dug, Super Pac Man, and much much more. Hell yes.

You went to CEC for one thing and one thing only.

The Ninja Turtles arcade game.

"Investigators believe 20 people were involved in a fight inside the Chuck E. Cheese that they believe may have started because a child was taking too long to exchange game tickets for a toy near the end of the night, and parents waiting in line became restless."

Was the child just handing over a big unorganized mess of tickets? I'd thought Chuck E Cheese would have worked out a system by now.

Black Widow? The only thing black there were the parents throwing punches.

They did; you feed tickets into a machine that turns them into receipts with a barcode and the number of tickets on it, and you turn that in. Unless it's regressed in the 7+ years I haven't been.

Yep, back in the early '80s, the only reason you went to Chuck E. Cheese was to play video games. They had more games than anyone else at the time. I crammed handfuls of tokens into the likes of Tempest, Stargate/Defender, Vanguard, Berzerk, Space Fury and numerous others. Man, I miss the early '80s....

Does anybody have a running tally on these things?  I mean, I can start to do the legwork now if I have to, but if there is already a resource available, I would love to know how often Mr. Cheese's establishments become houses of anarchy.

You must be the only other person I know of that remembers Black Widow.  Such an awesome game.

That's how it's done and it's a terrible system. You have to wait in line for the ticket machine, while a four year-old feeds in tickets one by one. Dave and Busters does it best. They weigh the tickets and give you a count. Takes five seconds.

Original Star Wars game (vector graphics) at the CEC I visited once many years ago.

Subby apparently knows how to disappoint.

I wanted an article about pepper spray where kids can be kids

LOL, this isn't the first time this location has had a massive brawl, in April 2008 there was another one there. WTF is wrong with people?

Why even bother with a ticket system. They should issue you a card with either a swipe or RFID and the card gets charges. At the end of the day you swipe or read the card, boom done.

They still have those machines, but the problem with them are the people who have huge bags of tickets and use all the machines at once, forcing the kids with 100 tickets that want a stupid little frog ring and a piece of candy to wait. I don't have a problem with saving them, we do that also, but we don't use 4 machines for 30,000 tickets. shiat, I'll go spend the 20 bucks on the hotwheels track for them if they want it that bad.

Never have seen any kind of hostility at the CEC we go to though.

it's because any names or details would be decried as racist or stereotyping.

When I was a kid we always went to Showbiz Pizza and the band was awesome.  Chuck E Cheese might be a better mascot but the Showbiz band rocked.

Because getting handfuls of tickets is way more fun than getting an incrementing amount on a swipe card.

That was before my time. When I originally typed 30 years ago in my post, I felt old. But that TMNT game was great.

I might have seen those too, but the only way I play those nowadays are through emulation or those classic compilations that seem to be everywhere.

It only appears on nearly every Atari compilation I can think of (I even got it on my tablet) but nobody ever hears of it.

Yes, we had that one too, but only the common upright and not the cool cockpit version,

That blows my mind too. My best guess is that most people block out wireframes because they don't usually don't have blatently colorful "ooh, shiny!" screenshot.

Reminds me of my favorite Arkham Horror card, which is one of the things that can happen at the Bank: "A little old lady stands in front of you, counting out pennies to deposit. Lose 1 Sanity."
