About a year ago, I started getting into Lazer Tag! It's an awesome experience and it's very addictive and is a healthy hobby too.

So does anybody else like zapping people at your local Lazer Tag Location? Share your memories.

Not since like 1985. I didn't even know it was making a comeback. :)

What I've played of it, I've loved. It's just a shame that the closest place is miles away. :(

That's why you're still a kid.

I play it at a professionally run Lazer Tag business where they supply the blasters and score sensor vests. The games last 15 minutes and you play on teams.

I play once or twice a year when I get the chance. I love it, but unfortunately it is hard to find people to play, and I don't like going to play with random people because you end up with a bunch of kids and this one ridiculously good, sideways-walking dufus who probably lives there.

Support your local Arcades and Lazer Tag arenas because this sour economy has taken a bitter toll on them.

If I didn't play paintball and have better games on every console than any arcade has to offer, I might support them. TBH, all this negative economy's done so far is weed out retailers and entertainment outlets that were coasting--economic Darwinism at its best :D

I love home games, but arcades offer vintage pinball machines, deluxe and classic video game expierences, and air hockey. I believe both markets can co-exist.

Also, I strongly disagree on your take on the retail bankruptcies. A month after Circuit City went out of business, the cost of TVs shot up 11% for consumers. So you can only imagine how expensive things would be if Wal-Mart was the only survior of this so-called "economic Darwinism!" In fact, I blame Wall Street's greed for this "economic devolution."

Also, the main reason why so many businesses aren't surviving is because the banks aren't lending like they used to. So I don't see the merit of that argument.

I don't see the merit in the "support ___" argument. If people like something, they'll pay for it. No one is going to go play at an arcade just to "support" it; they'll go if they want to play at an arcade.

I wish there were a good arcade around here with some tournament fighters, brawlers, and shoot em ups. They're the kind of games that I only really want to play with others in person and generally aren't worth full retail price, but like you said, arcades aren't doing well, and the closest one I've found was eight hours away... which is just slightly too far.

Well, I think in hard economic times if you have the extra cash help those industries in need! That's al I'm saying.

I cherish my childhood memories of arcades and I think it would be sad if they went the way of the dinosaur. I hope someday to have children and I would love it if they could experience the magic of both arcades and lazer tag.

LOL trace was awesome, but i used SYLUX and Samus. Retro really could make Sylux have his own game lol. I really hope/wish retro's new project as of now is a metroid prime hunters for wii lol i know its very unlikely, but imagine the multiplayer and the depth that could have if they added even more classes/hunters and weapons :D

I'd love to see that happen along with a story mode where you play as one of the other hunters (or more than one) instead of Samus. I'm tired of recovering the same weapons over and over. The other hunters were all so interesting. Sylux was indeed quite cool. I also liked that guy with the turrets.

ya weavel hes awesome, and he would work in a story very well cuz if i remember correctly, samus severely damaged him in a space pirate conflict (apparently, i never remember shooting him in any past game but who knows, he might have been there) and he seeks revenge on her.

Sylux would also work well cuz with the special ending of corruption it looks like its him following her, they could go on with that concept :D
