If the Arcades made a comeback...

Would you go to an arcade? I was in Philly for a concert once and afterwards me and my friend stumbled into a video game store. Right in front of the game store though were people playing Marvel vs Capcom 3. The atmosphere of the place was amazing for such a small cramped area. At my college there is an area where people can bring in their video game systems and play with their college buddies. Again the atmosphere is very light hearted and fun. I was thinking it would be cool if arcades would make a come back. How would they make a profit though? Would gamers even pay to leave their house and play games somewhere else? I would do so. It is the same thing as going to the movies. People pay for all forms of entertainment, so why not video games?
This is a short and simple blog. I really want lots of feedback though. The reason being is I think I am in the early stages of deciding whether or not to open up my own arcade. I live in a town with not much to do. There is the movie theater and and that is about it. I wanna inject some life into my area and I think opening an arcade would be a hit.
