It seems that every gamer reaches that point in their life when it's time to buy an arcade machine. And for me that time has come. As I look through various eBay and Craigslist postings, I'm beginning to wonder what the machine will ultimately become. I'm sure I will play the game regularly in the first days and weeks. But like any game, I will move on. Yes, there are those classics on console I replay at least once a year, but I can see the machine not getting much use outside of those few times I want to play.
My question to arcade machine owners then is: Do you use your machine more as a showpiece or as legitimate entertainment? And before someone says, "Why not both?" that is why I put the MORE clause in there.
