Episode 11: Galloping Ghost: an Epic Arcade Game Collection

Since 2010 Doc Mack has been the operator of Galloping Ghost Arcade, an old school arcade in Brookfield, Illinois, outside of Chicago. It’s the world’s largest public arcade game collection. Doc grew up on fighting games and developed an interest in martial arts, game design and arcade electronics restoration.  Since then he has helped open new arcades, legitimize professional gaming through high score verification and is currently working on bringing the next generation of fighting game,  Dark Presence, to arcade floors from his own Galloping Ghost studios.
