I know that strictly speaking Pinball isn't video games but its always been one of those things I've enjoyed. Granted, my experience playing on actual tables like this is extremely limited but I've always enjoyed the odd stint on a pinball video game and when I do get a chance to play on actual tables it's always an absolute blast.
The place itself is this huge sort of warehouse looking place filled with all sorts of Pinball machines. Some are insanely old while others are surprisingly modern. The one that struck me the most was a machine based on The Walking Dead. I didn't snap a pic myself but here's a image of the layout I got off Google
On the flip side there are machines made from the god knows when old times but the fun thing about these machines is that they were 10 yen per play
One of the more video game related things that surprised me a little bit was that sitting next to the Tron pinball table was the goddamn Tron arcade game
It doesn't matter if you're a pinball wizard or a piece of shit who just smashes the flippers and hopes for the best, Silver Ball Planet is a fun and cheap day out that I think anyone could get at least some degree of enjoyment out of. Pinball is one of those games that's easy to get into but has qualities that make it hard to master. There was an advert in the place for a beginners tournament which made me curse the fact I don't live in Osaka because I would have loved to check that out. Anyway, to round out this post here are two pictures of the Super Mario tables.
