Twitter Thread: Chuck E. Cheese Worker Conducts Behavioral Study Using Arcade Games

While Chuck E. Cheese has gotten attention for filing bankruptcy and for their sneaky Pasqually's Pizza debacle, we think this Twitter thread involving the chain is far more interesting. Twitter user @Professor_Palmer took to the social media site to announce that for the past few weeks he's been conducting secret behavioral studies on unsuspecting Chuck E. Cheese game players. The experiments are rather simple, and involve adjusting the use of lights and sound in an attempt to better understand what draws people to - or away from - arcade games. The results? Human beings are really, really, easily manipulated. While this isn't the most shocking insight on our kind, seeing Cary Palmer spell it out in such a fun (and thorough) way has been incredibly informative. And very entertaining. 

Fascinating and informative twitter thread from chuck e. cheese employee who conducted behavioral study using sounds and lights in games to see what people respond to | Professor_Palmer @CaryPalmerr The last few weeks I've begun conducting my own behavioral study in secret. I have been adjusting games at Chuck E Cheese and recording the subconscious response of guest interaction over the week. I've discovered some pretty interesting things. A long thread | This is the game that made me start

The fact that it might have been built by Activision is also a nail to the coffin.

This Basement Arcade is the Best Father-Son Project Ever

Redditor mertzlufft and his dad spent what must have been many hours and countless dollars (quarters? Tokens?) making this basement remodel. That lump you just felt in your throat, by the way, was a condensed ball of pure jealousy. Check out all the pictures below!

It won't come cheap, but the R-KAID-R promises for 8 hours of battery life with a customizable button layout and an 8" screen. You know, in case playing Bubble Bobble on the bus was your highest goal in life.
