But did you ever read the novelisation of Smash TV
Oh cool, Sunset Riders... how does this version compare to the one on Game Room?

That's about 16 games more than I ever owned. I still want to own some though. Like Shadowland and Super Street Fighter II Turbo.

Where do you keep 16 cabs!?!?
I've been emulating a lot of stuff lately, got close to 30,000 ROMs, but I can't wait 'til I'm earning money and can start buying actual hardware. I hope it's not all gone or too much more expensive by the time I can actually afford it.

This is 16 more than me :|
I'm saving up money for that Venetian Blinds board.
He sold (or traded) it a while back.
Where do you keep 16 cabs!?!?
He only has a few, a lot (Double Dribble, Aliens and a few others) are from the recent mailbag.
I DON'T WANNA TELL YOU HOW TO LIVE YOUR LIFE JEFF BUT YOU NEED SOME MORE SIDESCROLLING BEAT-EM-UPS
I SUGGEST CAPCOM'S THE PUNISHER, ALIEN VS. PREDATOR & CADILLACS AND DINOSAURS ALL OF WHICH THEY WILL NEVER RE-RELEASE DUE TO LICENSING ISSUES. I ALSO SUGGEST SEGA'S SEMINAL D.D. CREW PERHAPS THE GENRE'S TRUEST CLASSIC

Need to get some D&D: Shadow over Mystara.

Owning a Hyper Fighting arcade cabinet is on my bucket list. Also, that Missile Command art is pretty great.
@jeff No Neo-Geo games? Or are they all AES home cartridges?
I haven't played all these games but I approve of this list

I'm so jelly of that Sunset Riders. It's a rad game!
how large is this secret arcade mansion
my local movie theater (this is what we have instead of arcades) has maybe 7 games tops
Someone recently sent in a bunch of arcade boards. So these can all fit in a few large plastic tubs. I they play a few of them on the most recent UPF.

Man, I shoved so many coins into the Aliens arcade machine as a kid. I love how bonkers, totally-not-like-the-movie that game can get.
Well obviously there needs to an Encyclopedia Bombastica for Ultra Balloon. I am assuming all the boards on this list still work. I think Jeff recently mentioned his Street Fighter Alpha 2 board was toast.
That Aliens Arcade game was amazing at the time (possibly rose colored glasses on here). I would love to see that on the show sometime.

I never played Aliens, but I LOVED the sequel(I think) brawler that had 4 characters, 2 humans and 2 predators.
Dude get Tapper. It's so fun.

Jam and D&D and you're good. I'd like to have Joust (table version), Xenophobe (I wish they'd finished all the other weird puzzle stuff they'd planned at the start), Road Blasters, APB, Golden Axe, and especially Xybots.
@dudeglove: Isn't that just 'Richard Bachman''s The Running Man?
Forgive me if this has been asked and answered, but what is Jeff's favorite fighting game? I wanna say KOF 98.
Also, fun fact: I went to my local MMA/Boxing gym, and suddenly, the Street Fighter Alpha 3 soundtrack starts playing over their stereo setup. I should go there more often.
i have a 4 player MAME cab and NBA Jam TE still gets a ton of play. It is easily one of the best 4 player games of all time. Price is stupid from 3 though. I have 8 arcade cabs and made most of them multis because I don't really have space for dedicated cabinets. 4p mame, Neo Geo, jamma candy sit down, MK cab with an x360 in it, Vertical/rotary Mame 2p cab. Nintendo cab with a NES in it, defender, and 2p Super GT. Anyone like me who grew up with arcade games and still likes them should have a MAME cabinet. It is a ton of fun.
Ok, that's an awesome list. Would love to own NBA Jam and Smash TV.
@blair: They actually played it on Unprofessional Fridays

You can see for yourself but it appears to run at a higher framerate and has better sounds / sprites than what I remember of the SNES version. It also seems like it has 4 player support!
That's an odd mix of games you have there, but you really do need a Ms. Pacman of some type.
Super jealous that you own an Aliens arcade machine( I'm assuming that's the case). That was one of my favorite arcade games and I haven't played it in twenty plus years. Yeah, I could use MAME, but it wouldn't be the same.

How in the world do you store that in the Bay area?
If you can, get Berserk (with the talking robots and Evil Otto.

The best reason to play the Aliens game is the stage 1 music: https://youtu.be/PhuqFr0L5Ak . The best Terminator music ripoff. :)
Use your keyboard!
