Yeah, I suppose so. Do I still think it's silly? Yup.
Costing the company thousands of dollars due to lawsuits isn't silly in the least bit. Regardless of if kids do or don't. There wasn't anything silly about the removal and because of the issue it won't make a return.

The Arcade thing would have to have a bunch of minigames, and really I can see Voltorb Flip coming back specifically for that since its based off of Mine Sweeper. If not, which I can't really see them throwing in minigames that weren't like in FR/LG, then it would be hard to impossible to incorporate a replacement.

I don't think we'll ever have a "Game Corner" area again.
