Friendships were tested and enemies crushed. With finals around the corner, stressed students found relief in the makeshift video game arcade set up by the Anime Club in the Nordic Lounge for 25 cents per game on Wednesday, May 14.
Barbara Qualls, 20, a criminal justice major, said, “During finals this event gives students the opportunity to relax and play video games.”
The arcade consisted of Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo 64, Nintendo Wii and Sega Genesis. The more popular games were “Call of Duty,” “Star Fox” and “Mario Party 8,” but many more titles were available to play.
There were multiple TVs for the various consoles and a projector for the more popular games.
Part of the proceeds of the event will go to the Child’s Play Charity. The charity has been helping hospitals since 2003 by providing children with age-appropriate entertainment, books, toys and video games.
