I put an Outrun arcade machine in my dining room so you don't have to (but you'll still want to)

I put an Outrun arcade machine in my dining room so you don't have to (but you'll still want to)

I've always wanted a home arcade. This is something that has appealed to me since I saw my first arcade cabinet as a child, playing Mario Bros. at a local strip mall. My affinity for arcade games only grew as I aged, but even in my 40's, I've never really had the spare cash or room to pull the trigger on a legit, full-sized cabinet for my home. This is why Arcade1up's machines are so appealing.

This company has found success manufacturing half-pint cabinets that are perfect for an arcade in a small house (like mine) or a child's room. The OutRun Seated Arcade I’ve been playing is only four feet tall and costs just $550 (no quarters required).

Doom and Doom II are now playable at up to 120 FPS on Android

Doom and Doom II are now playable at up to 120 FPS on Android

Bethesda released Doom And Doom II on Android back in July of 2019, but both games had a rocky start thanks to a forced log-in, music changes, and a lack of features. Unlike most AAA devs on the Play Store, Bethesda actually put in the work to improve each game, and today another large update has been pushed out to both titles. You can now view either game in 16:9, and high frame rates have also made the cut, which means you can now play at 90 FPS and 120 FPS. Support for DeHackEd-based add-ons is also in the mix, and a few performance improvements are here to seal the deal.

I mean more ports or HD remakes that stay true to their original roots and pricing models. So I have put together a wishlist of the top titles I would love to see brought to Android with the love and attention they deserve.
