CONTINUE IS FOR SUCKERS! – Using Continue in Classic Arcade Games is a Terrible Idea

In classic arcade games, where a play costs a quarter, the introduction of the “continue” option was interesting. It offered to let you resume the game from where you were when you last ran out of lives. It seemed great, but is it really just a ploy to get your quarters faster and deny you more playtime?

In this video, Jon spins up Rampage, R-Type, and Final Fight to compare what you get for a dollar when you do and don’t utilize the continue option. Is it really just for suckers?
