I remember back in the day where arcades were very popular on forums. Would you add an arcade to your forum? It might be a unique feature now as most forums don't have arcades on their forum.

I had an arcade on one of my forums and I remember it being a big hit. We had arcade contests too where people could win video games of their choice.

 

Woah that's awesome! Did you find that it took people away from making posts on the forum? Or was it not a problem at all?

I was quite heavily involved with v3arcade back in the day (Oblivion Knight), but it was a hugely grey area as the games had to be decompiled and put back together with additional code in them to make them compatible. Techniques gradually got better with this, and you couldn't see any difference - but the reputation damage had already been done, and some people continued to use inferior software to accomplish the code injection, and it made an absolute mess of the game's aesthetics.

Then there's always someone who tries to make money from selling "packages" of these games, when they did none of the work themselves.. Completely selfish.

I don't have a arcade plugin/modification installed on Bizdustry. Why? I'm highly concerned that there will be a decrease in the amount of topics and posts being published, and this could well drag activity away from the forum itself.
