English term or phrase: arcade games
A kid has a collection of games:
Sports games
Race games, and
Arcade games

Any suggestions for "arcade games" will be greatly appreciated. I know the idea but I cannot think of anything now.

Thanks,

Luis

juegos arcade/ juegos de tipo arcade
Explanation:
videojuego is the translation of videogame, which is not exactly an arcade game. (arcade games have restricted technology, while video games include both the arcade and the lates technology games).

I did a search on www.yahoo.es and I found a couple of sites calling these games "juegos tipo arcade", "juegos arcade" or simply "los arcade".

From Revista INTERNET WORLD:
"En aquel momento Internet no había llegado a Sudamérica (existía en USA y Europa), y los elaboradores de software todavía no habían masificado los arcade u otros games bélicos."

Thanks all for your prompt reply.In another context, I could have just used "videojuegos" but the collection the kid had was all video games, among them, those arcade games. In Chile, they use the same word to refer to those places where you can go and play them.

Explanation:
En la jerga suele hablarse de "juegos de arcade" o, en singular, simplemente "arcade" ("es el clásico arcade...).

Arcade


Explanation:
Creo que Arcade es una marca comercial. En cualquier caso, éste es un término que se utiliza tal cual en la jerga de los videojuegos.
