I had an old relay based (aka, not microprocessor based) one at home called

Dealer’s Choice that I received as a Birthday gift at 16ish? It had been in the lounge at the Dulles Marriot prior to living at my Dad’s house for years before traveling to Charlotte after UVa and then sold before our move to Asheville. It was hard to maintain and the flipper solenoids would wear out, but man did I put a few hours on that machine. It was cool to open it up and see all of the inner workings. Again, relays and old school, but more like 70s generation, not the really old ones. Good times.

With that said, the link showed video games too and man that was a good hit list. Time Out and Time Out2 at Springfield Mall had a few quarters dropped to them, but did anyone else use the Arcade in Fairfax on 236 that was a converted old High’s Convenience store? Close to downtown Fairfax proper. I think it may have been called Playtime Arcade?
