I think my town needs more than a little bit of reinventing, as lovely as a gym across the street from a smoothie shop sounds even the idea of more than two thirds of shops in the highstreet being in business sounds just a bit optimistic. In the recession the town's generally just been fucked, it already seemed to be degenerating - for example, a cinema going out of business, turning into a bingo hall, going out of business, now turning into a 'Mountain of Fire and Miracles' church.

Stuff like that...

i had a dream like that, there were sensors on our heads for headshots as well lol

We Actually have one of those in Orlando. The guns they use simulate the weight of the real gun. They also have grenades. There were things like shotguns, Mac-10's, Sniper rifles, and Assault rifles.

If I could, I would put a comic book/ manga cafe into my town. A place where you could sit down, have a drink, and read some literature of your choice. Maybe even have some drawing tables so people can draw and work on their own art. Also some cuputers/ tablets so people could get their art online.

They have to get a lazar knife, like a plastic apparatus which projects a short infrared beam, and if you stab someone with it and the beam makes contact with their armor shit, they die and such.

I just had another Idea, like yours very much but what you could also do is the following:

- Set up a gaming lounge/animating lounge
- Let young aspiring animator and game makers come there from the local highschools
- Introduce them to flash and webcontent
- Let them do a school project there with funding from the highschools with professional newgrounds help
- Let them hire PCs with flash pre-installed so they don't have to use illegal or lesser freeware versions
- Let them hire booth's for sound so they can create good voice acting and stuff

(So it's like a flash developer lounge :D)

And ofcourse spam them with Newgrounds best and latest, and ofcourse a merchandise store

I imagine toddles growing op with new heroes like Dad 'n me :D

That would be awesome, would be a great reason to come over there from the netherlands just for funs

I don't know why no one has thought of combining a bookstore with a bar. No grind music or djs, and the loud/belligerent drunks are thrown out, so the noise will not be too deafening. If you make a purchase over $30, you receive a discount on alcohol the next time you visit. You puke on it you bought it rules should also apply.

Pros:
-Bookstores reach a new demographic
-Enhances experience for existing customers
-Provides customers with incentives to buy books
-Creates an additional source of income for the business

Cons:
-Loss of demographic b/c of drinking age restrictions
-Additional upkeep and maintenance costs
-Complications of acquiring both a business license and a liquor license
-Dangers of storing high-proof alcohol and large amounts of flammable material in one building

Gosh, i would love it if my town had something fun. Last cool thing we had was a little place filled with computers where you could pay like 5-10 bucks for every hour and hang there and play all sorts of games. But it got shut down 5-6 weeks after opening. Dx I could go for a cool place to chillax and play some games..

I dont know if it's been said yet, but I would definetly want to bring in a huge arcade! Not like a Dave & Buster's or something like that, Im talking your "old time" local arcade, no tokens, QUARTERS! I live in Roxborough, PA, just outside Center City, Phila and in Ivy Ridge, there is a nic piece of storefront that has enough space to accomdate this. Too bad it will never happen. I have always had these great ideas for what I would want to do if I had enough capital to do this too.

+To expand on multiplayer games, get a bunch of Wii's, Xbox 360's and PS3's and there could be tournerys and stuff like that!
+Get all kinds of old and newer games and pinball sets
+A snack stand...not an eatery, but just snacks and stuff
+Must have Street Fighter 2 (original cabinet, no wussy Alpha Counters, Air Blocks and/or Supers)
+Will have ALL the best fighter games and old 80's games (like After Burner!!)

These are just some of the ideas I have eevr had when it came to opening up my own arcade. Basically, I would want to do or try to have everything that made going to the arcade so much fun. Places like Dave & Busters dont come close to the hey-day of the arcade, everything is too adult, with bars, and pool and sports all inside, the core of the arcade is lost. Yeah, by having all of those things may bring in more money and "variety", but I think there is jsut something lost that we may not see again..and I just wish I could do something like this.

Basically the best parts from this comic.

I still remember the days of spending 10 dollars worth of quarters beating House of the Dead II or the Star Wars Trilogy game. Or dang, this one arcade I went to more than 6 years ago that had a space based game with up to 8 people playing on a massive projector screen.

The memories...

A store with all the NG merchandise, of course! And maybe merch from other cool websites like Penny-Arcade. Like a web-merch alliance.

I think that having online stuff in an actual store would be easy to implement and profitable. I personally hesitate before buying shirts offline because I don't know what the sizes are going to be like, and it's nice to try things on, or even just see them so you know how well they're printed or if the cool design is going to wash off after you wear it a few times.
