Peter Hirschberg is my new hero. This retro game-craving lunatic / genius has placed upon this earth a 60′x40′ patch of pure, unadulterated heaven. To the unwitting passer-by, this magical space may appear to be nothing more than a sizable garage, but what is contained within is almost too wonderful to be believed. I am referring to the Luna City Arcade. It is without doubt the most splendid arcade ever to have existed in this world, for within lie 57 classic arcade cabinets – from Asteroids to Zaxxon – all lovingly restored to shining perfection by Peter himself. A herculean effort, as nearly all of them came to him non-functional and in downright “disgusting” condition. (Peter’s personal fav’s are Discs of Tron, Tail Gunner, Space War and Lunar Lander.)
See the full gallery, walk-through video and interview over at Gizmodo. And Peter…I bow down to thee.
