Words by Lyndsey Beatty | Photos by Lyndsey and Brandon Beatty Gaming Insurrection Gaming Insurrection has always been geared toward arcade life. Whether it was traveling a few miles to fight the local competition in Mortal Kombat II or to stomp on arrows in Dance Dance Revolution, GI has always made it a priority to find a hideaway that traffics in tokens. In the start of a three-feature series, GI traveled north twice to visit the latest trend in the arcade scene: a barcade. Barcades are the future of arcades, where mixed drinks and arcade cabinets meet to have a nostalgic type of fun. The first of the series features the great Super Abari, of Charlotte, N.C. Here, you'll find an assortment of cabinet-games, a giant Game Boy Tetris station and American Gladiators playing for the general populace to enjoy. Come with us as we walk through the barcade and show off the past and the future.
