When First Light host Brian O’Keefe visited the Galloping Ghost arcade last year, the sound of hundreds of vintage video games was overwhelming. This week Brian visited a new arcade and had the exact opposite experience. The only sounds at Arcade-V are in the headphones of the people playing the virtual reality games.

Brookfield Is Home To World's Largest Vintage Video Game Arcade

Finding a way to beat the sometimes-oppressive August can be a challenge…but if you’re looking for hours of air conditioned fun…look no further than Brookfield. Remember guiding Pac-Man through a maze of power pills, blasting Space Invaders, and the rapid-fire pest control of Centipede.

First Light host Brian O'Keefe remembers spending hours guiding Pac-Man through a maze of power pills, blasting armies of Space Invaders, and the rapid-fire pest control that was Centipede. None of that video game play was on the couch of his parents basement, it was at an arcade. He visited a place recently where you can relive that experience and chase the chance to post a high score.
