Nevermind, that it's a fucking game where you fight in hover tanks that can drift and have machine guns and missiles/lasers.

This is my favorite game period. I know nobody will ever feel the same but that's okay.

I also know that I'll never own a cab of this, but at least there's the PS1 port.

That game was my crown jewel at a yearly circus in my hometown. I thought it was the most advanced and amazing arcade game ever and I would show it to my friends but they were all "Meh. it looks like tron"

They all grew up to be cawadooty fans :(

House of the Dead.

Well not because of the cabinet but because of the arcades always putting that curtain around it.

Stroke of genius on their part. What kid could possibly resist playing that awesome game hidden behind a curtain?

A local sandwich shop used to have a cocktail Galaga and I never had any troubles playing it. Always pissed off the staff by being too engrossed in the game to get my sandwich when they finished making it, so at least the fact that it was a cocktail didn't seem to affect my game any.

Most of these things had seats. Supposedly, in podunk towns in the middle of nowhere, you could find diners that had tables like this too(as seen in The Wizard). I was never fortunate(?) enough to live in a town that cool, though...

I loved this fucking game. So many quarters spent! It was just an average beat 'em up I guess, but just such a blast to play, probably due to it being 6-player. People would still crowd around it waiting for a spot though

Oh, I'm not complaining. I LIVED in the arcade as a preteen/teen. Between Star Wars Trilogy, SF3, Area 51, Police Trainer, Daytona, and Rush 2049, I probably spent upwards of $5,000 in my youth. Wouldn't ask for a dime of it back.

There used to be a few arcades around 20 minutes away from here, one of them even had a bunch of older cabinets, but that one got shut down, and the only one left is another typical DDR and lightgun game only arcades, a damn shame.

Do you guys remember an arcade shooter that looked like a time crisis but with mulder and scully in it? The first level was a museum and the final boss fired rockets at you, and the second level was on a train.

"That's...confidential."

Confidential Mission, that is. The credits were awesome mainly for the fact that they had outtakes of the stunts in the game, and some of them were just fucking hilarious. Also, I thought the last boss wore some sort of disorienting prismatic suit and slashed at you?

>>1795652

Maybe so...I'll keep the USB steering wheel in mind.

>>1795324

That stuck out in my mind because in my arcade, they had this setup, as opposed to the condensed cabinet, so you really felt like a badass Resistance soldier. I do think this is not /vr/ permissible, though...I could be wrong.

>>1795298

I think Arm Champs 1 was more widely released in Japan(Jaleco and all, maybe...). From what I'm able to gather, it was really basic compared to 2, with a lot less personality. As for me, the only time I ever see those units is at huge amusement parks, which I rarely get to go to...so that's what I mean by 'not seeing too many'.
