Are you from the north?

[–]Dessle2790 28 points29 points  (2 children)

I'm from the North and yes we remember.

[–]Spiwolf7 5 points6 points  (0 children)

From New Mexico USA. The arcade at the old water park we used to have had one of these.

[–]RectumExplorer-- 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The north remembers.

[–]Bunnybuns123 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I remember one being at Six Flags New England. Might have been called Riverside Park back then.

[–]Ihateualll 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They had one at the Dave and Busters in Atlanta, GA like 20 years ago.

[–]newocean 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Used to work there... it was also the Great Escape for a couple of years.

There was one in Ocean City, MD. As of summer 2013. Been there since I was younger. Prolly still is.

[–]Billypillgrim 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I found one in ocean city this past summer. It’s still there!

[–]Stoichin 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Huh, do you remember which arcade it was in?

[–]Rumspringa98 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The Funcade on 9th street. It's next to a Sunsations and the Americana hotel/Hammerheads bar.

[–]nerrvouss 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Actually I think It was playland. The one next to sportland. The two arcades on the boardwalk that are near the rides and ripleys believe it or not. Im sure because ive played a TON of in the groove 2 and it was in the same arcade. Funcade had in the groove 1.

[–]lifeisflimsy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sure was! MD represent!

[–]jaredthegeek 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Matched a similar boxing game as well.

[–]Handsyboy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They had one at a rest stop off 95 in southern Maine back in the 90s, never saw it again after the one time though.

[–]HamilReddit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Came in to say the same thing. 90s at the mall arcades.

[–]TheAssholeList[🍰] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

At least one or two in Wildwood, NJ in the boardwalk arcades there.

[–]exileonmainst 0 points1 point  (0 children)

my cousins and i used to team up and beat the one in Wildwood. the final boss was no match for a 10 year old + 9 + 7 combined. i remember it being outside the arcade by the korr bros.

[–]jcutta 1 point2 points  (0 children)

On the boardwalk in Wildwood NJ there's an arcade that had nothing but old arcade games. They have this. Along with tons of shit I never saw before and dozens of pinball games too.

[–]TmF1979 2 points3 points  (1 child)

They had these in the states as well. Haven't seen one since I was a kid though(~20 years ago).

Canada, too, but I haven't seen one in a very long time.

[–]Unexpected_Buffalo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Me and some cousins of mine found one a few years ago in some little corner store in northern Ontario. Put it to max difficulty and triple-teamed it.

[–]acidphosphate69 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same here, last sighted in Hampton Beach, NH about 20 years ago.

[–]Guitar115 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah there is one at Kings Island in Ohio

[–]piemaster316 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I still know of one that's up and running.

[–]Verone0 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There's one in ATL too.

[–]DudeAnt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

didn't they get rid of them because someone dislocated their elbow?

[–]hecksing 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Still got them in Kentucky in some movie theaters and bowling alleys

[–]Cheezewizzisalie 209 points210 points  (7 children)

Am I the only one that was waiting for his arm to break?

[–]Time_Dr 75 points76 points  (2 children)

I know I was. I am never arm wrestling again after seeing that shit.

[–]Garstick 23 points24 points  (1 child)

I got the live show once and can still hear the loud snapping sound.

Never arm wrestling again.

[–]hatgineer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Like ripping a turkey wing out of its socket on Thanksgiving.

[–]cfmat 1 point2 points  (2 children)

[–]sircheesy 35 points36 points  (10 children)

There's one in East Lansing, Michigan. Little classic arcade with tons of nostalgic, old school games, as well as higher tech, some straight from Japan games. One of the new additions is a giant two player competitive Tetris game with joysticks that are two other three feet tall. Edit: forgot to mention the Tetris machine is entirely in Japanese too.

[–]pixx630 7 points8 points  (5 children)

Aw hellz yeah, what's the place called? I've GOT to go there for my birthday.

[–]Pop-X- 6 points7 points  (3 children)

I’d bet anything it’s Pinball Pete’s.

[–]dad121314 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It is indeed pinball pete's

[–]marsemsbro 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There's one in Ann Arbor too.

[–]Dash12345678 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pinball Pete The Invincible.

[–]sircheesy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pinball Pete's :)

[–]cfmat 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What's the name of the arcade? I used to live in Haslett right next door.

[–]sircheesy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pinball Pete's.

[–]Dinodouscher 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Go green.

[–]sircheesy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Go white. That's my Alma mater actually

[–]deal_with_it99 31 points32 points  (5 children)

Lefties are at a disadvantage.

[–]Baseball009 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Not if they have a gun

[–]Heroic_Sheperd 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Plot twist

[–]Pandatotheface 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Even more so while playing this game.

[–]backtodafuturee 0 points1 point  (1 child)

IIRC, the robots hand spins accordingly

[–]Faps_McTickle 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Not this one, but other models have a rubber type glove that creepily switches its joints.

[–]themendingwall 25 points26 points  (2 children)

The robot's face looks like he's shooting his load

[–]BobbyGasoline 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I can't decide if that is a terrible idea or a million dollar idea for a video game. All you have to do is change the arm.

[–]TSMasochism 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Or ball a fist, I guess. Wait...

[–]Tomya 8 points9 points  (0 children)

They have one of these machines at Galloping Ghost Arcade (in Illinois).

[–]Sconlon 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I used to go to this theme park that had one called the gold saucer, but then I got falsely accused of killing a whole bunch of soldiers and sent to a desert prison

[–]EatThatPhoneBook 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Insert next disc please

[–]dylanhendy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

we have one of these in the movie theater in my home town. always had to use two hands to beat the highest levels

[–]grossnegligenceislit 4 points5 points  (0 children)

don't turn your chest away when you're arm wrestling

[–]knutnaerum 5 points6 points  (3 children)

OP, where in Norway? I didnt know we had arcades here

[–]AscendedAncient 6 points7 points  (2 children)

OP Won't respond, it's from 6 years ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvDziPMbbfI

[–]knutnaerum 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Then I do declare OP to be a karma whore

[–]TimecopVsPredator 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's No way, not Norway.

[–]LeverShan 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]albinochicken 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There's on of these at kings island in ohio- near cincinatti

[–]Karleopard 2 points3 points  (1 child)

But they have these in the US too. I've seen a few in Jersey.

[–]XCypher73 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeppp. I'm from NJ and have seen many throughout the years.

[–]bizkitmaker13 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They used to have one of these at an amusement park in Wisconsin I went to. Fun times.

[–]ElCapitan42 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure there’s one in Seaside Oregon

[–]trueGator89 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I remember these from when I was a kid, I was always scared the robot arm would go to fast or to hard and snap my arm

[–]cletisjones 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dorkys in Tacoma Washington had one a few years back last I went. Not sure still though.

[–]adventkid1 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Saw one of these at California's Great America

[–]wadss 0 points1 point  (1 child)

is that place as run down as i've heard it is? last i went was about 15 years ago, it was fantastic back then.

[–]adventkid1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I feel like it really has. Ever since Paramount went away.

[–]SokieTheGinger 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I live in Oklahoma we have a big event center like Chucky Cheese called Main Event that has one of these.

[–]mynameisprobablygabe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They have one at six flags over georgia

[–]Sega-Forever 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I've always wanted to see armwrestling champions try one of these games.

[–]poopwithjelly 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I crushed one in San Diego on the boardwalk, I reckon they could rip it's arm off.

[–]GezusK 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Played one this summer in Six Flags, in Georgia. Did better than this guy :) I wonder if the force is adjustable.

[–]NMurra2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When I was a teen two of my friends and I couldn't beat the entire game. Mad props to that guy

[–]RagingSam 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wow remember that when i used to be 15 or 16, never been able to beat the second guy

[–]vvafflehazard 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I remember playing this in Toronto when Yonge Street still had arcades.

Man I really miss arcades, blue air, shady people and all.

[–]AspieAndy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We have one of these in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada. I used to beat the robot and the hidden boss every time I went to the arcade when I was a kid.

[–]Tronz413 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They had these in the states in a lot of arcades. Man that takes me back. I always cheated.

[–]3006721297 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bruh they have one at the works 2 streets away from me

[–]El_Erra 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Imagine how painful this is going to be when robots take over the world

[–]Whitewind101 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thats been out for years i remember as a kid trying this nearly 30 years ago!

[–]enkae7317 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I remember playing these as a kid. I would use both my hands because we were just a bunch of weaklings messing around. One time my cousin and I both pushed the arms.

[–]BigWuffleton 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My local arcade had one until last year

[–]ProlapseFromCactus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I prefer starting position.

[–]steev506 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"Please please tell me I'm not in /instant_regret...oh phew /gaming you scared me!"

[–]charlesh4 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They have one of these at the local barcade

[–]CH450 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've played these many times in the us. What's the big deal?

[–]Razerum95 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Game is Arm Champs II

[–]Bowtie16bit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That game is almost over the top.

[–]f_ranz1224 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I remember these as a kid! My brother an i always cheated. One would stand by the arm and pull. The other would push or play normally. I dont thinl we ever beat the highest level

[–]Lobanium 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was expecting to see something interesting as these weren't uncommon in arcades in the states when I was a kid.

[–]reempup 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I use to see these all over in the dirty Jersey shore....

[–]puntloos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Video URL: "https://gfycat.com/gifs/detail/DeliciousFixedBobcat" - am I the only one trying to figure out how castrating Bobcats will make it more tasty? Could the testosterone make the flesh more bitter?

[–]standtallnofall 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I watched a YouTube video years and years ago where two men were arm wrestling. There was a pop and an instant, "call an ambulance". I haven't been able to witness arm wrestling sense. Since this was with a robot, I thought it'd be safe and thankfully, it was. But I did anticipate something bad.

[–]Walnutterzz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And then that one asshole gets pizza greese all over it

[–]ManofMangoes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The arcade where I live has one

[–]DetectivePenguin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

theres one at the golf club near my house

[–]pixx630 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's it, I'm going to Norway.

[–]Faust_8 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Another reason Norway isn’t one of those shithole countries! /s

[–]Likeshfjne 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So what they have one of these in a local malls game room in Massachusetts

[–]everypostepic 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I'm really curious to see the internal workings of this. Does it really get harder each level by attaching more weight/resistance.

Also, wouldn't it be pretty easy to cheat? Just have your buds there, helping to push and pull it.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well duh you could cheat but the reason people play it is for fun

[–]Originalhommequifume 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah it adds more resistance. They had one at a seaside resort I used to go to as a kid about 15years ago and yes you can cheat my friend and I had it on hard setting and were trying to beat it another kid saw us struggling and joined in as well. It definitely had a fair amount of resistance because instead of the arm going down the whole machine started rolling away (it was at the front of the arcade) it rolled a good distance still it snagged a bit of kerb and we managed to get the arm down, high fives all round then we all wandered off leaving the machine a good 10 metres away from where it had started.

[–]Roswell85 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I memba dis game. I also memba me and my 12 year old friends all helping to beat this guy.

[–]LackingCreativityATM -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Got one at Dorkys in Tacoma, Washington next to the punching machine. Guy in the video didn't even have the robot on the highest level psshhh.
