Arcade games, often known as coin-operated games, are typically installed in public establishments like cafes, bars, and amusement arcades.

Various games, including arcade computers, pinball machines, electro-mechanical games, redemption games, and merchandisers, are first exposed to the public in arcades as basically talent-based competitions.

The first coin-operated video arcades appeared in the middle of the 1970s, with Pong quickly becoming the most successful game. Electronic or updated hardware in arcade PC games interpret the player’s actions and displays the results on an electronic display, such as a screen or TV.
