The best arcade location?

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about getting the Grapeseed one or the La Mesa one since it's 25% off or should I just wait to get a better one like more half off. I see that the one at Paleto is cheaper but I see alot of negativity about it on GTA Online reddit. I always avoid business in Paleto anyways.

The issue with all the Paleto Bay businesses is that they're so far out of the way that it makes things far more drawn out just to get to the business and back than if they were in the city or near Harmony.  There's just so much time spent travelling for the business missions that could be better spent doing other stuff.

Yea I figured that, no wonder why rockstar makes them cheaper and it seems like they do that to screw you over when doing sale missions

IMO for actually playing the heist the two best locations are La Mesa and Vinewood.

I got a question if you have the La Mesa one, where's the garage location, in front of arcade or back of it?

 

nvm, I just found out, it's in the back, saw a player walk out the garage

I love the grapeseed one for the location and design. 

However I did not choose it. 

 

I bought the warehouse in Davis, fits my character well. 

It's in the city, good road access, garage in front. 

Snack shop close too.

Closest to the casino. Centrally located, lots of ways to get there/lose cops.

I own the most expensive one in West Vinewood because it's right next to Eclipse Towers where my Lester teleport point (original heists) is located, which means you can quickly get back to the arcade for setup and supply missions. Also, it's not that far from the Casino itself. However, the Videogeddon arcade in La Mesa looks absolutely brilliant from the outside (they're all the same inside anyway), so if you're looking for total cool at a decent price and also have properties and businesses in that area, go for it.

Videogeddon. Never regretted it. Given I've collided with every pipe, light pole, fence and pile of asphalt in the area.

I picked Video because it sounded like best ratio price/proximity to Casino. After I realized it was perfect for Agressive - Sewer Entrance, which is my fav approach.

I chose videogeddon because of the aircraft spawn point with a tunnel from the road leading to it, I like it a lot.

I own Eight-Bit.  I like the location. The only downside is every time you have to hack the security's phone to find out what's in the vault, the guy is always at the Observatory and I hate that goddamn road.

Just buy them on the laptop in the arcade office. Then open up the interact menu to place them.

I have the same location for the same reasons. Also I have all my apts at Eclipse so I have 70 cars all right next to each other.

 

I have La Mesa on my guy character (will be changing to Vinewood though) and it is a great location right near LSC, a gun shop and the casino but the garage is a pain to get to and there isn't a real good place to park a Hydra or helipcopter.

 

I like Davis as well and I did have it the first time I did the heist but it is a bit far from the casino and I like doing this heist a lot. I also like Rockford Hills for being right next to a gun shop, 2 offices and the Del Perro apts.

I just use the Oppressor for that

But really all of the LS arcades are perfect

 

Anyone who bought a Paleto arcade is a fecking idiot.

I started out at La Mesa then moved to Vinewood.

 

I really liked La Mesa, I might move there again once I'm done with the heist, but the garage access is seriously annoying, and while Vinewood doesn't have a nearby aircraft spawn point, you can land pretty much anything on the boulevard right in front of the garage.

You can land aircraft on the roof of Videogedden. I park my Hydras and Hunters up there. You can walk off the corrugated roof at the back without taking damage to land right next to the garage entrance, and there’s a ladder to get back up. 
 

It lacks the heist Teleport of the Vinewood one, but if you have the Darnell Bros warehouse next door then you can use the luxury helicopter fast travel (for a fee). The proximity to ammunation, the casino, and aircraft spawn points are all great for Videogedden. The off street garage entrance is a slight annoyance though.

Spawn a Buzzard, fly up and have homing rockets active. It'll lock on to the guy so you know exactly where he is.

Depending on the size of the chopper, you can land it under the overpass. A hydra can be parked in the river.

I agree because I bought one on one of my accounts. It was the only one I could afford and I couldn't be bothered grinding to get a better one but I really regret buying it. I will be buying a better one before I do any of the heist stuff though.

I didn't know that.

Only thing I miss is the helicopter spawn point but I can always get my Akula and park it next to my Vinewood garage before I start missions.

My biggest problem is having Helipcopters on the street. The npcs get scared very easily and crash into it.

I didn't mean on the street, I actually meant on the side of the arcade, that area of the underpass is a good area to land some choppers.

I got Rockford Hills. 

 

No complaints. Seeing as everyone has the one in Vinewood or La Mesa, this one feels special. It's also right across the street from Richards Majestic, so I can take a heist invite and basically be right back at the arcade.

Vinewood. Hands down. If you have other properties in that area then that's even more of a bonus. If not is easy to relocate. It's the most centrally located arcade on the map which is good, because the prep missions take you everywhere on the map. The garage is to the front of it. It's close to the casino. There's a reason that it's the most expensive arcade in the game.

My new account got the Davis arcade, and apart from it fits him the most and I like the location and front entrance garage, the snack shop is right in front of it plus good road access. 

 

I seen a video where a player talks every location starting in paleto Bay. 

He kinda skips Davis saying it's too far from everything. 

 

I beg to differ. The grapeseed, which I find attractive, and pixel Pete are far away from everything. 

 

Videogeddon is cool, gun shop, good getaways but it's the one most players are using imo. 

Too much going on in that area. 

 

8 bit.. Well that's a spot which is not my place. 

Never been. 

Many players there around who own the eclipse towers. 

Also I personally find an arcade unfitting there. 

 

There's another one right? Dunno which but Davis is like the arcadius tower to me. 

 

I find most players own an office there on the west side, maze bank and the other or players have the high maze bank tower. 

 

About setup and drive to the casino, from Davis it's just straight up, no big deal. 

 

Sweet and quick ride. 

Also, IF someone gets funny at that corner in Davis, they got ballers and forum gangsters going out blazing guns.
