Total RecallTotal Recall is a look back at the history of video games through their characters, franchises, developers and trends.  

In the 1982 film Tron, nearly everything takes place, in one way or another, inside a joint called Flynn's Arcade.

While at E3 last week, video game historian Scott Patterson decided to skip the noise and light and go and see how the building used for filming is looking today.

It's...not bad! It's still clearly the same place, even if it is now a Japanese restaurant, and not a video game arcade where one machine has the ability to suck you into a life and death battle for survival.
