True, true. Area 51 is one of those machines that I'll play if it's there and there aren't any better alternatives available.

There is one question I would like to ask based on the final paragraph of this review. If you were lucky enough to find an Area 51 cabinet charging only 25˘, would you still only play one credit?

I might play a couple, actually. I don't think I'd play much more than that because that's less games of Strikers 1945 Plus and Centipede I could play. Then again, quality arcades are hard to find these days. It seems lately whenever I find one with Area 51, it turns out to be the best game in there.

We purchased Area 51 for our children to play in our game room. Perhaps their age plays a large role in this but they really seem to enjoy it.

OzGirl1985:
Thank you for reading! I don't contest that there could be some who genuinely enjoy the game. A 6/10 is not a negative rating, after all, just not a great one. I think for me it's just that it doesn't hold the same effect on me now as it did when I was 16, or even 21 when I originally reviewed this at GameFAQs with an 8/10 rating. It just didn't age well for me.

DAMN it STILL costs 50 cents to play Area 51?! Fuck me, I thought the game had gone to single quarter ages ago!

Pff. I'm still shocked that, considering it's practically everywhere, the price to play Area 51 hasn't gone down to two credits per coin.
