Retro, arcade-style video games can be found in various homes, bars, restaurants, 24/7's and clothes shops in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (but unplayable), Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto V, and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Arcade games provide the player with small minigames that are usually based on real video games. They feature basic objectives, simple graphics, and a high score list that the player can get on.

The high scores of playable games will be saved to every machine of the same game, even though this usually wouldn't happen in real life, unless the arcade machines are connected to each other through their own proprietary network.
