St Games (Singapore’s First Video Games Café)

St Games
St Games is Singapore’s first video games café located at the Cathay (directly located opposite the Dhoby Ghaut MRT station). It is a gaming café that offers you the experience of console gaming for Playstation 3, Xbox 360 (Kinect) and Nintendo Wii; a perfect solution for those who want to try or cannot afford the space and game consoles.

I had the opportunity to visit St Games when my friend planned a day out for us. The decor of the cafe was okay, the lighting was a little dim, and pretty crowded as it was a weekend. Good think my friend had booked via phone the day before. For a first timer, it did look a little intimidating, but once you get past the exterior it was all fun. The staff would patiently explain to you how to use the equipment and how to play. While we were there, a family was celebrating a child’s birthday in the room next door and playing games at the same time.

There were about three other rooms for gaming, while the rest of the gaming stations were located outside the café for all to see. If playing out in the open where strangers can watch you is disconcerting, you can request for a room for more privacy. It was S$14 per person for 2 hours. If it is your first time there, they will charge you an additional S$5 for their membership card.

Overall, it was a fun and interesting experience playing Dance Central and some other game whose name I cannot remember on the Kinect; it was hilarious and pretty good exercise. The concept is an interesting one in Singapore. So the next time you are in Singapore and want some gaming action, St Games would be a good place to check out!
