Most of the arcade style games here aren’t really my thing. I enjoyed sega driving championship the best. The others are like final fantasy. So if that’s your thing, you’ll like it here.

Why wouldn't you want to go to a six story arcade? I guess if you're not into arcade games, but since you're in Japan you should get the SEGA experience and check it out just for fun. Even if you don't want to spend money to play it can be fun to see some of the really skilled players go at it.

A new 6th floor has just opened with a VR game called Mortal Blitz, and it is awesome!!

You go in and grab a number, we had to wait about 40 mins to play. It's 1500Y per player. You get your VR goggles, headphones and a gun, and all of a sudden you are immersed in a war zone with monsters that you need to escape from.

Very fun, very scary, very worth while!!

There are two sega buildings on the street (Chuo-dori) that are 50m apart on the same side of the street. I'm not sure if they both have VR so if you can't find this, try the next sega building down!

There are quite a few of these sega places around Akihabara - including Taito station - and they are definitely worth a visit. I must have wasted so much money on the 'UFO Catchers' (claw machines) trying to catch silly little teddy bears haha (be prepared for the insane amount of machines that have porny anime inside haha I was shocked and couldn't stop laughing at it). Had fun playing on all the old games as well like Street Fighter and Tekken. My fave - of course - was Mario Kart. It was interesting to see the crazy amount of 'music games' they have - we didn't bother giving these a go as we were confused just by looking at them what you were supposed to do haha so we just stuck to the usuals...
