With the popularity of Nintendogs over in Japan, guess it was just a matter of time before it hits the arcades. Lisa Katayama of Tokyomango found (and played) this gem:


This is me playing the dog walking game. This is arguably the most challenging arcade game I have ever played. Much more so than Beatmania or DDR (j/k, I so don’t play DDR) or Street Fighter II. Basically you have to walk on a treadmill while holding this white dog’s leash. Walk too fast, and he’ll get tired. Walk too slow, and he’ll get bored. And when obstacles like the neighborhood bully dog or a oncoming car shows up on the screen, you better steer clear! If you mess up, your dog dies.

Wow, imagine the therapy one will need after playing this game and seeing their dog die every time they fail.
