I've posted about crane games several times, but arcades almost always have one of these drum machines, and one of the guitar machines you see behind it. And I frequently see someone hacking away at one of the two.
Timed reaction gaming has moved from DDR, to the instruments above, to touch-screen or button responses. There are some Kinect-style arcade games which are popular with middle/high school girls, but button-whacking is quite popular with the guys - and girls too. Maybe next time I'm in the arcade I can sneak a few shots.
