Whether you’re seven or 70, we all enjoy an hour – or a few – parked in front of the screen with a controller in our hands. Playing video or other arcade games is a great way to decompress, relax or just enjoy downtime with friends.
But if your pile of games in the corner is looking a little bare, you can head to these arcades in Washington, D.C. to get your hands on the best games. Here’s where to head for some virtual fun.
