Your quarters have long been sunk in the machine, you’re mashing buttons at a furious pace, and then it happens: the 8-bit reaper comes for you. Check out this video remix of dozens upon dozens of classic video game arcade deaths to relive life in the arcade.

Over at Boing Boing they’ve put together a great reel of the death sequences from classic arcade games.
