I found myself in town for a couple of days back in November 2018 after visiting the Free Play Florida event, and was taken aback by Google’s distinct lack of suggestions for places to check out, given the size and cultural significance of the city itself.

Arcade Odyssey, one of the Top Old school Arcades in South Florida

Modern day arcades exist, but they are full of overpriced entertainment that leaves the player broke and unsatisfied with the game time value. Then, you have those arcades. The arcades worthy of a gold medal… built on nostalgia and still thriving from the days of old. The games there are classic, simple and yet to be topped. Sure, they are 16-bit and full of pixel, but they are so near and dear to our hearts that we just can’t get enough!

Arcade Spotlight by Arcade Sushi

We’ve covered quite a few arcades around the country, but we have yet to head down to The Sunshine State, where they not only have babes in bikinis and Disneyworld, but also some sweet arcades! Arcade Odyssey is located in Miami, Florida and is a nice throwback to the arcades of old. They have nothing but arcade games here. No crazy rides or ticket redemption machines. Nope. This is for the gamer who likes their stuff old school. They not only have the greatest in fighting games, old school classics and schmups, but they also have Japanese Xbox 360 consoles, Japanese games, snacks and even some pins! And they’ve got over 100 classics so you’ll be plenty busy. But that’s not all! They also hold cool gaming events and fund raisers, and they even have cosplay events! And you know we love us some cosplay here at Arcade Sushi.

Chosen by NewTimes as Miami’s Best Arcade 2012

Rick Medina had amassed one of the largest private videogames collections in the area. The collection included hundreds of rare items, including hard-to-find consoles and arcade games. But videogames — like DVDs, guitars, and the gullible are meant to be played. So he set out to open an old-school arcade. The result is Arcade Odyssey. There you'll find tons of machines you'll remember pouring countless quarters into during your childhood (Mortal Kombat II, Terminator pinball) and several rare games imported from Japan or that were never mass-produced (check out The Act: An Interactive Comedy for one sweet example). Because Medina's collection is too large for the space, a handful of different games are rotated in about every month. A warning, however: If you stop by, we can't promise we won't be hogging the 1992 X-Men six-player cabinet. If you're lucky, there might be room for you as Dazzler.

Arcade Heroes Honorable Mention

As we get ready to sign off on 2011, what better way to compliment the ending of the old year and the beginning of a new one with yet another story on a new arcade location opening it’s doors. I can’t recall a time where we’ve had this many stories on new locations opening up in such a short period of time, although I am sure that there are many out there that we don’t hear about until well after the fact. This newest one is called Arcade Odyssey and is now open in Miami, FL. The owner, Rick Medina is quite the video game collector in fact, Arcade Odyssey was originally going to start off as dual purpose museum for both arcades and consoles but due to economic restraints just the arcade is opening for now. Check out this post on the AtariAge forums showing his substantial game collection that spans not only arcades but consoles as well, and how that transformed from personal gameroom collection to public arcade. The thread is quite good and I would recommend it to anyone doing research in the field of opening their own arcade as he covers the trails faced in such an endeavor, many of which I know first hand.
