Arcade games are bad! Well, at least the ones that break arms

Posted on August 24, 2007

If you ever had grandiose ideas about becoming a professional arm wrestler, and defeating numerous arm-wrestling machines in the process, you should probably put your dream on hold.

Since three players recently broke their arms playing Arm Spirit, Japanese game maker Atlas has decided to remove all 150 of its machines from arcades.

I'm sure your parents are reminding you on a daily basis the evils of video games. I'd have to say that playing the Wii or even the arcade version of Galaga probably would not result in a broken arm.

If you are interested in arm wrestling, try against a friend, or maybe arm curls at the gym. Just don't drop the weights on your toes.
