Game Corner looks completely innocuous, doesn't it? Sure, there are people sat at the machines who never seem to move from their spot, inexorably pumping coins into slots, hoping for a jackpot that never comes. Sound like gambling? Yes, it does, rather. Which is why Game Corner is badass.
What do I mean? Well, look at it this way. European ratings board PEGI freaked out over the similarities between Game Corner and real gambling, forcing Game Freak to remove Game Corner from Pokemon Platinum. That means the act of frequenting an existing Game Corner and hanging out there is a rebellious statement the nanny state disapproves of. Rebellious youths? Wasting time and money? That makes it the most authentic arcade of all! Oh, and you can even find money on the undoubtedly sticky floor. Game Corner FTW.
