View Full Version : Anybody got an arcade machine?

Anybody owns an arcade machine? A couple of years ago I got an Xmen vs SF with a 25" monitor from ebay. I ended up buying other JAMMA boards, like:
Killer Instinct 2
Street Fighter 2
Street Fighter Alpha 2
Kung Fu Master
However, I haven't played with most of these boards since I setup the arcade machine with a computer for emulation. Every now and then I still browse through ebay to see which boards I could buy, even though I know I wouldn't play it very much due to my backlog of Wii, PS3 and PC games.

I came close to getting a Neo Geo MVS, but then I didn't get it. I still want to get one one day.

I had a Rastan machine for a few years, but eventually it stopped working. I didn't really have the space for it, so I got rid of it. Now I have the game on my PSP and my Xbox thanks to the Taito compilation.

Oddly enough, I do. Ghostbusters.
Before I got my own, used to play it at a local gas station/convience store. Then they got rid of it.
I don't get many opportunities to use mine, since it's kind of not with me at college, but I plan to have some fun with it soon.

Nope. I prefer console and PC setups over arcade setups. Always have. Arcade machines aren't very friendly if you plan to move around quite a bit (every 3-4 years or so) and they take up a lot of space for something that you can't as easily change the game in it.
Heck, it's also easier to make a better setup than arcade machines in certain circumstances. I think my DDR setup in the basement is far nicer than a DDR arcade machine.
No but an old friend of mine does. He's got Xevious, Gauntlet, Smash TV, Tempest, Ms Pacman and a couple others.

My dream is to have a house with a fully finished basement and a game room/bar with two pinball machine, Medieval Madness and Jurassic Park, two of my favorite games as a kid.
