I didn't win the PowerBall, BUT
I did have a fabulous fantasy about having a room (in my mansion) devoted purely to arcade games! Mmmmm! Sooo... Here's the top ten arcade games I'd have in there!

1) Golden Axe
2) X-Men
3) Star Trek: TNG Pin Ball Machine
4) Darkstalkers (Yay Felicia!)
5) Area 51
6) D&D (The first one)
7) Street Fighter II (Yay Chung Li!)
8) Gauntlet (The original - Valkyrie is about to die!)
9) Samurai Showdown
10) Ms. Pac Man (The turbo version)

Current Mood: mellow mellow
Current Music: Rammstein - Links 2 3 4

But... Marvel vs. Capcom!
Galaga!
Donkey Kong!

I could go on, but I won't. There are just too many.

Yes, I considered Marvel vs. Capcom. I LOVE that game... but, it just didn't make the list. It's definitely on my top 15! I think the only reason it's not on my top 10 is because I always sprain my hand after playing it! *^_^*

Psst...emulators will get you most of that. :)

W00t for Ms. Pac Man turbo! I hate my GBA game because they didn't put turbo in. :(

Emulators are fun...

In fact, I have one for all the original nintendo games. BUT, I find that for arcade games, it feels kind of... wrong.

I tried to play X-Men on an emulator, and I had to stop. It's just not the same... Which is sad because that would be MUCH cheaper! ^_^

Re: Emulators are fun...

Ooo gimme gimme gimme!

Do you play them on a monitor or TV screen? While some arcade games won't quite fit (Ms. Pac Man comes to mind), others play just like they're at the arcade. :) SNES games especially work well.

Re: Emulators are fun...

Heh, right, ROMS is what I meant... Ahem.

Well, if we're talking arcade games, my fiance said he'd be willing to put a whole bunch on DVD discs if you pay him the amount he paid for each disc (77 cents each).

He mentioned that he could get every arcade game up to date, if you'd like ^_^

Re: Emulators are fun...

DVD's are okay, right?

Re: Emulators are fun...

DVDs are wonderful.

Re: Emulators are fun...

Yay! I'll get my man's ass in gear then! ^_^

Re: Emulators are fun...

Okay! Tom finally got the games on DVD's for you!! Yay! *Dances*

So, there's three DVD's. Is $3 okay?

And, how do you want to do the whole sending thing? We both live in Boise so I can drop them somewhere, or I can send them. Either way.

Re: Emulators are fun...

$3 is wonderful. It'll be worth the check.

I live in Boise, so meeting would probably be the best way, unless I scare you or something. :(

Wednesday is when I get paid, and I need to go get some things at CompUSA. We could meet out there maybe before 7 pm?

Re: Emulators are fun...

Finally LJ is back up!

Wednesday (I assume you mean tomorrow ^_~) would be just fine.

And no, you don't scare me :P

CompUSA works for me, though what do you mean "before" 7 pm? Does that mean anytime before 7?

Feel free to email me at ifritah22@yahoo.com for a response. ^_^
