|English term or phrase: arcade games|
|A kid has a collection of games:|
Race games, and
Any suggestions for "arcade games" will be greatly appreciated. I know the idea but I cannot think of anything now.
|juegos arcade/ juegos de tipo arcade|
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.|
