Default Who out there owns Arcade Cabinets???

Since this is a general gaming area I thought I would propose this question. Who out there has Full Size Arcade Games at their house? What games do you have and what games do you want? Lets hear it!

A buddy of mine has a LOT of the. Gorf, Galaga, Donkey Kong a few obscure ones. I REALLY want a Tron Machine in good shape. My alltime favorite. The 360 version is nice...but the controls are HORRIBLE.

i've always wanted one of the tabletop games. those were so unbelievably awesome.

that stupid one costco was selling w/ like 30 games, such crap. unless it's a neo geo or some shit, cabinets should be 1 game. old school.

I wish they weren't so damn expensive. I'd kill to have a couple of those in my future basement.

I only have Super Pack-Man and Baby Pack-Man. Old school wise I still want Donkey Kong and as far as the newer stuff goes would like Sega's Time Traveler and the R360 cabinet version of G-Loc.

I have a Street Fighter 2 cabinet. It was a fun hobby for awhile. Now it just seems it takes up too much space. I wanted to redo the whole cabinet but haven't got around to doing it yet. I thought about just putting it in our break room at work. That way It would get more playing time and some competition.

It brings back great memorys, however, happyending is correct, after a while they just take up space and you look to get rid of them. They become expensive to fix and an eye sore. Great memories though!

I have MKII arcade... unfortunately it doesn't get much use. It's cool to have when friends come over though.

Always wanted one, but the price has always held me back, closesed I came to buying one was when a local community hall had their Peter Pack Rat (one of my favorite games) machine up for auction a couple years back, but once the price went over $500, I couldn’t bid anymore (went for $550), times were tough. Though I do own the next best thing, a PAL Dreamcast cabinet, got it for $239 of ebay last October...
