Yesterday, Aug. 29, marked the start of Mr. Pixel’s, a new arcade with old games in northwest Houston, Texas.
For $10, it’s all-you-can-play on classic pinball machines like Nightmare on Elm Street, Barb Wire, Batman Forever and Dungeons & Dragons. Arcade video games are also part of the mix: Street Fighter II, Berzerk, Donkey Kong Jr. and Golden Tee among them.
Owner Joe Grisaffi is a Houston native who’s spent most of his life working in the film industry (including an acting credit in Pirates of the Caribbean). He’s also a big arcade collector, according to the Houston Press, which is where all of the Mr. Pixel’s games come from.
