Arcade Games in Soviet Russia

Ever wonder what Arcade Games were like in Soviet Russia?
It's pretty interesting to see.

Re: Arcade Games in Soviet Russia

In Soviet Russia you don't play games, games play you.
Now that I got my stupid, unfunny, slightly racist comment out of the way:

Some of those games actually look pretty fun, like Sea Battle.

The narrator made a good point when he said that the games seemed more focused on reality than fantasy.

Re: Arcade Games in Soviet Russia

I agree, Sea Battle looks pretty awesome.
If only we could get these on RU...

That one based on the Russian Folktale looked like a Pitfall clone.

Re: Arcade Games in Soviet Russia

Here's a related story.

The Museum of Soviet Arcade Games

And it's associated picture page:
Museum of Soviet Arcade Machines - a set on Flickr

Quoting someone from MAMEWorld:

"It's interesting that none of the games are politicized at all, even the war themed games are pretty generic. I would have expected more "Whac-a-capitalist" or "Shoot the Yankee" type games. We certainly had our share of games that at least implied that the Russians were bad guys (Rush'n Attack, NATO Defense, Red Alert, WW III, etc.) or at least reflected Cold War fears (Missile Command)."

My thoughts exactly.

You will never see those games on any emulator because the machines depend on mechanical devices.

Re: Arcade Games in Soviet Russia

@SJB:
If you want to play Sea Battle, it is online:
Game "Morskoi boi"
(it isn't exactly the same, the one in the video depended on mechanical parts to work, this one depends on Adobe Flash player.)
It is actually pretty fun.

Here is the website for the very same museum which the video you posted was about:
