> I hate places that have the games on freeplay

Agree 100%

However, by doing this they skirt the legality of
coin-operated devices and the permits / licenses
they require. By acting as a museum or showroom
with an admission cost, there's no need for permits.
This also nets them a fair revenue.

The worse, though, are time-based situations.
I once effectively paid $4 to play one game of
Burgertime due to cost-per-hour structure.

Lastly, I notice freeplay arcades are less inclined
to worry about game playability issues, since you
did not lose money in any one game, you can be
instructed to merely "play something else!"
