Nowadays we can enjoy those games in our PC using some emulators and downloading the games (called rom) for online for free. U will enjoy it more if u do have a controller.
I am a big fan of these games. I had more than thousands of roms (though there are more than 6000 mame roms available). I lost all those unfortunately. I used to play in those Arcade Machines when i was a child. Still playing in PC using MAME.
I believe in this community there are many mame lovers who are playing or willing to play these games. I dream of building an Arcade Machine something like this http://www.tmsoft.com/article-arcade.htm
though i didnt like the disign, and i do prefer spherical joystick.
Dont want to break ur patience by writing too much. We better start the thread rolling.
PS: Dear Moderator, plz put this thread to correct section. I missed the ARCADE section, thats why i started here.
