Build an Arcade Cabinet?

Arcade machine is nice to have but really if its worth it or not depends on how much actual time you end up using it. I personally feel I don't play mine enough. Depending what type of system you have in it depends on which emulators you use it will run and also if you want to play console games on an arcade machine or not some don't mind it and others don't like it so its subjective. Between MAME Demul Supermodel and the Sega Model 2 emulators you will literally have thousands or Arcade games to choose from.

I would use it mainly for fighting games and might use LaunchBox for just the startup and to launch games easily

I built mine from scratch and it sits in the corner of the lounge. I built it because I grew up playing the machines when I was a student in the 1980s and I can remember which pub each game was in!

In truth it doesnt get played very often but I enjoyed building it , and I love having it to show off the old games to mates.

Great to watch my sons student mates loving the old games.
