About two years ago , I saw these guys who hang out at the local arcade playing some kind of a racing game. Of course , I didn't mind them but a week ago this machine pulled me for a few minutes. Yes , I'm your usual first timer. Picking a cool sedan ( Impreza ) and everything. I have to admit it's good and ADDICTIVE.
Just after a few minutes , I've noticed that my wallet's lost all of its life force. Being an ex-TCG card player , I know what the term ADDICTIVE is and its evilness. Well , I just want to express myself. Here , a game costs around US$ 0.45 and a new card costs around the same. That's why everytime I go to the arcade , I limit myself up to 8 games.

hahahahahaa you can't be serious

I've never heard of a place as cheap as 45 cents per game

this must be a joke topic... 8 games per round? seriously.
And cards for 45 as well, unless they are using cheapo self-made cards, real ID cards actually cost the arcade $1 each.

If this is real, you are getting quite the deal.

Yes it's 45 cents here. You must have misunderstood my message. I'm living in the Philippines.The card and the arcade game itself are 100% authentic. Cheap isn't it? Well , I'm sorry to say that I'm halfway around the world and our standard of living are different. Look at this , if we make it $1 a game and the minimum wage of an average construction worker is $8 a day....you know what'll happen to the local arcades......

Correct.

I've lived in the Phillipines as well and it is cheap to play Initial D. I think 100 dollars for 15 thousand pesos. I'm sure it's around 30-45 cents for an ID game in U.S. currency.

I'm 17 now, but when I was 15 I'd say my parents were giving me around $50 US weely? But I don't know the average because some of my friends didn't even get allowance...

This is what I've said before. We're halfway across the world. If I'm not mistaken , in the U.S. teens can get work from a local fastfood or just from plain house chores. But here its quite different. Our school runs from 7-am up to 4-pm. We only have about 2 and a half months of summer vacation and nobody here'll hire a busybody high school student....
