Actually the more I read this thread, Id add more. Rtype would be amazing. And there was this ridiculous horror 3D game I saw at the local place. Dark Escape. Its so good.

Battletoads
APB
Mortal Kombat

But just got some news literally the same day I signed for the new house.

Short version. No more arcade machines for a while.

you may or may not believe in God "@dashv" but you could always try to pray for a bigger and affordable house, after all  it sounds like you've got nothing to lose. only to gain

Life on earth is only temporary and If you believe in God and do good in life. You can continue to live with any possessions  you desire in the afterlife, as long as you do good and don't do evil in real life

Wow. Where to start.
Owning my own personal arcade is a dream of mine. All of the following arcade games have a nostalgic meaning for me for one reason or another:

Q*Bert (my favorite game ever. If I can ever afford an arcade machine, it will be this one)
Donkey Kong
Donkey Kong Jr
Popeye
Dig Dug
Ms Pac-Man
Food Fight
Centipede
Mr Do
Jailbreak
Burning Rubber
Double Dragon
Operation Wolf
Shinobi
GiJoe
After Burner II
Thunder Blade (sit down)
Outrun
Chase HQ
TMNT
X-Men
Simpsons
Cadillacs and Dinosaurs
SFIICE & Super SFII
Mortal Kombat 1-3
WWF Wrestlefest
WWF Wrestlemania
Killer Instinct
X-Men vs SF
X-Men CotA
MSH vs SF
Marvel vs Capcom 1 & 2

And that’s not counting all the pinball machines...

Area 51 is one of my big ones.  I'd also love to have the full motion Star Wars Trilogy.

A friend had an extra Star Trek: The Next Generation pinball cabinet that I initially passed on, but I've been reconsidering it lately.

As tempted as I would be to get Virtual On, if I could only have one I'd go with a 6-slot MVS, so I could swap out games as I saw fit. I would start off with Battle Balls though- old puzzler that I used to play in a local restaurant and got decent at despite the screen going bad so the balls changed color as they dropped. I don't think it has a home release, oddly enough.

They have one of these at a local arcade, I play it every time I'm there! I usually end up taking the top spot on the bride's stage, but I'm also fairly sure they reset the high scores regularly, so it's not that great an achievement.

I guess if you had money coming out of your ears, it is a dream scenario right?
I think when it comes to MVS, a better dream would be to get a 1-4 slot and a NeoSD MVS. One cart to rule them all!

I have a few arcade cabinets and i'm looking for mostly ones that mean something to me. The ones I would love to add to my collection.

My top 3 are
- Burgertime
- Galaga
- Elevator Action

These I would love to own if i can find space.
- Tapper
- Gauntlet
- Dig Dug
- Robotron
- Berzerk
- Joust
- Donkey Kong Jr.
- Super Pac-Man
- TMNT
- Q*Bert
- Mortal Kombat II
- Polybius (yes i know its not real, but people make custom cabinets that i'd like to own)

And these I would buy in a heartbeat if I found one at a good price. Just because of their history.
- Computer Space
- Pong (arcade)
"Happy game hunting!!!"

One of the relatively modern tekken games.

In the past my answer would have been Street Foghter II but I think I’d play Tekken more today.

There's no stock market cabinet?

I want need friends like this. ;)

I swear to God I will have this air hockey table some how, some way, in the next 5 years:


you may or may not believe in God "@dashv" but you could always try to pray for a bigger and affordable house, after all  it sounds like you've got nothing to lose. only to gain

Thanks for the encouragement. I do believe in a power better and smarter than me in this universe.

The bigger more affordable house is in the works (finalizing contract this week).

But the implications it has for my immediate future may turn out to be more than I bargained for!

Certainly prayer is in order!

My dream arcade cabinet would easily be a 6 players X-Men machine.
It is amazing!
