Arcade games are fun no matter how old you are. These things can get boring occasionally but give it a few minutes or hours of pause and then you’re back at it again. That’s how amazing arcade games are.

Some of the best iPad arcade games are Angry Birds and Temple Run. Yeah, add Fruit Ninja to that list but then, there’s also a bunch of other games that you might have missed: games from the past that had you glued to your computer.
