No Arcade Feature?

The only thing AnimeSuki is missing would be an arcade feature..

Yes. Some forums have flash games on it such as here.

Even with the link you provided I'm still none the wiser as to what is meant by "Arcade Feature".

I'll second that. It's neat in a "I'm bored and want to kill some time" kind of way, but there are sites that do this kind of thing far better than we could ever hope to. It just doesn't feel like it would be a good fit for us, in my opinion.

Please no. Fourms with those arcade functions tend to descend into madness and spam.

Actually, this has already been suggested (and shot down) in the past.

Not too interested in an Arcade feature either, btw.

Not a good idea. It would be ( at the best) useless.

In a way we can't be everything to everyone, maybe. But I think having Arcade type games would be given some thought if they had content related to Anime. I mean, would someone really come to AnimeSuki to play Space Invaders or Pac Man?

Now if someone created a cool Kairin flash game, I'm sure that would be something people would be interested in checking out.

I think it really depends. Sometimes when an arcade is added it's a huge hit in the beginning, but then people tend to get sick of it because of the limited amount of games you can put in it.... Or the fact that some of the games suck. ^^;;

Then again sometimes it can have exact opposite effect. I've seen some forums die out because of people paying too much attention to arcades. Not likely to happen here considering this forum's immense size.... But maybe a drop in activity. I doubt anything that fatal, though.

Don't really see the point in having arcade here. Just seems a bit out of place in an anime forum which doesn't really emphasize gaming in anyway.

Kairin flash game sounds good though.

If you want to play flash, newgrounds is a pretty neat place to go

If I would like to play arcade games, I would turn of my computer and turn on my XBOX

Its been a few weeks and I have changed my view. As pointed out, it doesn't make any sense for an anime website to feature games like Space Invaders or Pac-Man.

That's a good point!

I think AnimeSuki should not have such a feature.

Like I said, in my opinion it really depends on how people react to such a change. I'm not sure how most people feel abotu this, seeing as very few people have actually replied to the topic, but if more people were to give their opinions on the matter I would be able to make a better assumption.

Sadly, not many people around here bother to post their opinions in the topics here.

Some threads get more replies than others, but with some exceptions here and there, it's usually just a couple of pages in the best of cases.

The games in the linked forum look really dumb. Time will be better wasted at Newgrounds and Kongregate.
