A {{setting|s}} not seen as much these days due to their decline - thanks to home consoles and Internet cafés - this is where all the kids used to go to play their [[ArcadeGame video games]]. Rows of them, in big, gloriously fashioned cabinets. Often in darkly lit rooms to let the video displays shine and maintained in states from squalid to pristine, the machines [[AttractMode flash]] and [[ArcadeSounds burble]] to themselves even when not being played. More recent examples often feature ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution''-style fun.

* ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies2'': In the [[TheEighties Neon Mixtape Tour]] world, your lawn turns into one when there's a huge wave of Arcade Zombies pushing entire columns of arcade machines in. Taken even further during an 8-bit Jam, where the arcade machines flash, make noises, [[TheGameComeToLife and start spawning 8-bit zombies from them]].

* In ''Film/SouthlandTales'', JustinTimberlake's disfigured WorldWarThree vet deals illegal psychic drugs from an arcade.

In the background, his militiamen - all of them in military uniforms - happily take up their light guns and blast away at the arcade cabinets.

* ''TheSimpsons'': Bart will still occasionally hang out in one, playing such games as "Escape from Grandma's House II" and "Hockey Dad". In a FlashBack episode to the early eighties, a group of kids go play a video game version of "Kick the Can", and a Mumbly Peg arcade machine can be seen in the background.
* [[StevenUniverse Steven]] frequently goes to the arcade in Beach City. Interestingly, games like [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Meat Beat Mania]] are portrayed very realistically and modernly. They get a lot of the small details down right, such as the time counting down for you to enter more tokens to continue playing.
* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' has an arcade, complete with DanceDanceRevolution (albeit one that's closed down. That doesn't stop ''some'' residents from jigging).
