Arcade games are still being made, and though I'm not sure about brick-and-mortar type arcade stores, there are certainly some online. Dave and Busters type "barcades" are very popular, and you can find an arcade in just about any mall.

Here are a couple arcade manufacturers that I could find:

http://www.bradydist.com/

While I don't think that arcade games are being bought by consumers like they used to, they are still being bought by businesses to entertain their guests. I think modern game consoles ended the reign of arcade games in individual houses, for the most part.

In 2005, there were about 25 arcades in New York City, down from hundreds just a decade before. By 2011, there were fewer than ten (and you needed to be imaginary and count places like Dave & Buster’s to even get to that figure of 25)
Another one the Chinatown Fair and it closed in 2011.

You may enjoy this article from day one to the recent present as arcades were born, evolved, and in the 1980's began a fall to today.

Look here at the Arcade Legends 3 from 2013 and the price tag.
They are very expensive for business or home.
