True arcade games are the ones you have to part with coins to play (even though these are now emulated on PC's at home and labelled "Arcade Games" because of their origins!)

Again you can get a lot of background from the Games Wiki:

From the first link:
"An arcade game is a coin-operated entertainment machine, typically installed in businesses such as restaurants, pubs, video arcades, and Family Entertainment Centers. Most arcade games are redemption games, video games or pinball machines."

Can you get to the third link? Can you view Google caches?:
