Centipede or Millipede (it doesn't matter which one).  It's my favorite arcade game and it's just not the same game without a trackball.

Riiiiiiiidge Raceeeeeeeeer! Pull up to the starting line and rev your engine, come on! We're ready and waiting for you

But if we're talking non-deluxe specials then I'd just want a Taito Egret 2 cab (with my own sound hardware modifications) and someone to come by and rotate the monitor for me. You should treat yourself to a cabinet when you come home from service Steve.

I don't know the name of it, but it was have driving-game, half light-gun game. Two player. Both players shoot, one player drives. Or one dude drives, and the other wields both guns. 
It wasn't the best game. But the idea was great, and the execution did the job. 
 
Other than that, it'd either be Ninja Gaiden (arcade version, obviously), or MKII.

I'd probably go for a classic. Something like Pac-Man. Or maybe even Pong. You can't go wrong with Pong.

Would you want the Galaga/Pac-Man combo machine, or just go all-out classical with a Pac-Man specific cabinet?

Wasn't it Ms. Pac-Man that had a combo machine with Galaga? I'm not opposed to Ms. Pac-man & Galaga but I'd rather stick completely classic and get an original Pac-man cabinet.

House Of The Dead 3. Or a Beat 'em up like Golden Axe, Final Fight, or Castle Crashers(Yes, there's a Arcade Cabinet of Castle Crashers.).

Time Crisis. I love me some Time Crisis. Sad part is, every time I went to an arcade(even funspot) the guns were always so poorly calibrated.

@Damian: That would be Lucky and Wild.
 
I'd pick Crazy Taxi.  Or maybe one of the 'Diehard' cabinets.
Oh wait, Police 911, I might pick that one...

Probably Tempest, I love that game. Only game room game I bought, though I immediately regretted it since it controls horribly.

Street Fighter 3: Third Strike, or The Last Blade 2. Third choice would be Ghouls N' Ghosts... maybe Metal Slug. I'd prefer it to be a game a friend can join into.

Dungeons and Dragons: Tower of Doom for sure. I can't believe they haven't released this on Xbox Live Arcade or something by now.

Of course, if I could have any arcade fixture regardless of format, I'd kill for an Addams Family pinball machine in good condition.

a MAME cabinet. Why choose a game when you can have all of them? Failing that a 4 slot neo geo cabinet loaded up with metal slug games.

Undoubtedly Galaga- one of my first Video game memories is standing in our local arcade (which is now a Barns & Noble) and watching my dad play Galaga- he taught me the double ship trick! Man I miss thag guy...

Probably Pac Man or Ms. Pac Man/Galaga. I have some good memories with the star wars game, track and field, and a weird version of dig dug for arcades. I'd probably go for the Ms. Pac Man/Galaga combo for value.

Or, wait. Marble Madness...

Yes, it was Ms. Pac-Man to be correct. At least I haven't ever seen a Pac-Man/Galaga combo.

As blasphemous as this is going to sound, I'd rather just have a good dedicated MAME cabinet. That way, you could just have all the games you could ever want.

I would either go with Pacman or Ms Pacman.

Would prefer Ms Pacman but either of them in good condition would be a lot of fun to own i think.

A pinball machine. Don't really have any fond memories of playing arcade machines, as the only ones in my area when they still existed were at a bowling alley, and they had a terrible selection.

I'm definitely down for the Capcom Beat em ups, those were pretty good. Also Ironman Ivan Stuarts Super Off Road racing! The turbo horn noise is worth it alone.

Three 'Ors' for me.
 
The Simpsons Cabinet 
 or
Sunset Riders
or 
Full Set Up Virtual-On with the joysticks and the fake cockpit.
 
Edit: Ok one more, one of those SNK Cabs that had 4 games in it, King of Fighters, Bust-A-Move, Metal Slug and something else.
