        If white people don’t want to be robbed, they should just give black people the things they want.

        this is a factor, but also because it was typically a Nintendo-only thing and then the GameCube failed, and despite Wii’s success the Wiimotes aren’t ideal for a kiosk.

        No. Nobody wants to work due to Biden throwing out “free” (i.e. taxpayer) money, so most places are so short staffed they can only barely keep the drive through open, much less the dining area which would require additional cleaning etc.

      I’d guess it’s a mixture of the general upkeep of it as well as the appearance they’ve tried to uphold with newer McDonald’s places. I’m guessing kids would wreck those controllers and stands all the time, get sauces/food stuck in shit, and just come in to play the game (I knew plenty of parents who would basically drop them off there as a temporary daycare for an hour or two). That and a lot of McDonalds these days, at least from what I’ve seen while driving by, seem to be trying to look more modern and "mature" with sleeker exteriors and more coffee shop-esque artinside. They probably want to put some distance away from the kids friendly look they had for so many years.

      In addition to the stealing and breaking already mentioned McDonald’s has also severely cut down on pandering to kids in the past decade and a half. Most stores got rid of the playground area and the main areas are sterile as fuck now. All thanks to pearl clutchers saying the clown and company were making kids fat so they had to go. First Ronald lost all his supporting cast and now he too is missing outside of the Ronald McDonald House thing.

        It’s some weird anti-soul move. Everything needs to look as clean and sterile as possible because minimalism is apparently cool.

          I went on vacation with a group, we went to a little island in south america. There was this rich persons house, might have been a timeshare, idk. It wasnt that big, but it looked nice. All the hyper lefties were saying it was too "posh" because the clay tiles it used as its roof stood out too much among the houses with regular roofing. These sorts of people hate nice things, liking poor quality things is like a status symbol or something.

          The answer is because it’s very hard to resell the buildings if they have a unique look and the restaurant moves.

              near where I live there used to be one store which had a hilarious history of different things being there, but unfortunately Developers eventually decided they wanted to bulldoze the building to make way for an apartment building.
              first it was a Mcdonalds in like the 90s, then that mcdonalds closed for some reason I don’t remember, so it became a Blockbuster, then you know what happened, and after after that it became a store that specialized in selling old videogame stuff, then that closed because the owner got in an accident/hospitalized and his wife decided that it was not worth it, and the very last thing it became was an Adult store where you could buy porn/sextoys until last year
              it never once stopped looking like a mcdonalds, but by the end of it kids had no Idea that it used to be a mcdonalds because they didn’t recognise the old mcdonalds building looks

            You’d think they’d intentionally design their buildings to be unique, that way even when they sell it you still remember what it was. There’s a Mediterranean place nearby that makes me think about dairy queen because it’s in an old dairy queen building.

            No, that was never the issue. The reason is because millennials were eating at places like Panera Bread rather than McDonald’s, and the doofy cartoon building cemented their "for children" image. Personally I liked the playfulness but I understand why it was off putting for others

                  This image triggered some hyperspecific nostalgia for long ramped walkways into restaurants and such like this as a kid. I guess it gives you time to anticipate and wonder.

                You mean in a place where people still disparagingly talk about games, you still can get bullied/looked down upon for playing on a portable and 95% of people who ever played video games still ditch them as soon as they reach adulthood, because they have other priorities?

      They shifted their marketing because they wanted to be seen as hip and millenials, i remember an article about years ago. They also removed the playgrounds. They probably saw that millenials were not gonna be a family generation.

      I remember my local one having Philips CDI kiosks some 25 years ago.

      I was only 6. I didn’t even know what a CDI was. Sadly, Hotel Mario or the Zelda CDI games were not part of it. Instead, was a stupid Sesame Street "game", a stupid pop-up "game" starring a circus seal, and the worst racing game imaginable that barely controlled at all.

      The controllers had a giant touchpad, with two rectangular buttons above it, and I never seen it anywhere else ever.

      >implying you’d want to play banjo-kazooie with greasy, grimy n64 controllers
      Sure Banjo was never good, but I’m not cruel enough to tell people to play them with those controllers

      I rmemeber seeing these once as a kid when I went to my cousins house in the state adjacent to mine. I just saw it from the car and didnt go in the macdonalds but it looked fucking sick. I think the one I saw had GC controllers but I also remember the screen showing starfox so I’m probably misremembering since I wouldve been like 5 or some shit when I saw it.

      For the same reason that South Africa doesn’t have functioning a functioning train system and electrical grid anymore.

          There are tons of articles on it. The train network in SA is collapsing because blacks are looting the stations and wires that power the trains. South Africa’s electrical grid has collapsed because their utility company is riddled with debt, run by corrupt cronies, and is unable to properly maintain the system or invest long-term and plan for growth. It’s, in other words, the exact same shit you see in every place once the population has a critical mass of blacks. Detroit, Haiti, Baltimore, Mississippi Delta, Sub-Saharan Africa – it’s all the same.

          You’ll never vote your way out of this anon. They’re fine with this state of affairs because it’s all they know and are capable of knowing. Same reason why they’ll always vote for Dems here.
