If money was no object (yeah right) what is the one arcade machine you'd like to own?

I've always wanted a sit down Star Wars. The stand up was okay, but it was not the same experience!

I would like to have the sit down Stun Runner. You sat on a thing that sort-of looked like the craft you were controling on screen and you controled it from the handle bars. I haven't seen one in years. Awesome fun.

Yeah, I love STUN Runner. It's hard to replicate the original, even in MAME. Especially without that steering controller.

S. T. U. N. Runner is a pretty good choice indeed, I'd probably pick one up if I found it and was in the market for one, but I wouldn't necessarily be going out to try to find one though.

Instead I would be up for a Major Havoc, then Tempest second. It's pretty difficult just to pick one, there are so many good ones!

Ooops messed up that post!

I was going to say that Tempest is a good one to have. It is my favorite to pull out the Jaguar and have a round.

As much as I would like a STUN Runner set up, I have no room for anything like that. I will just have to be satisfied with playing it on my Lynx.

I think the best arcade machine to own is one of the stand up, multi arcade machines with 1000 games. Would love one of those for the home.

The only problem is a lot of them don't play "right" though. I checked out one of those Multicades last year and was a bit iffy on it. Oh well, they're out of business anyway...

I would have to get the X-MEN game, the one with double monitors. I used to LOVE playing Nightcrawler on that game.

I would have to get a Ms. Pac-Man machine with the speed booster installed. An MKII would also be pretty sweet!

I'd buy one of those 200 in 1 game machines. Why pay that kind of money for only 1 game?
