I've got a PacMan and Donkey Kong Machine. Used to have a Centipede, Super Cobra and MAME machine. Restored / built all of them myself. With that said an auction is coming to Orlando this weekend, hmm?

The holy grail for me would be a Cliff Hanger cabinet. Not the nicest looking cabinet but I loved that game.

Don't have any because of space limitations (and let's get real -- the prices). A local pawn shop has several arcade cabs I grew up with, such as Mortal Kombat 2, for like $400-500 sticker each. I'm sure they're space hogs in there as well and they'd be game for haggling. Just not feasible in my situation to go this route. However, I have super fond memories of spending about every to every other Saturday in the mall arcade from about 1990 to 1996, sometimes from 10am opening until 5 or 6 in the afternoon. Also used to go to another place that had arcade, putt putt, go karts, etc, and would often stay from around 7pm until they closed at midnight. Not bad for a kid pre-internet. Used to be the norm to see the same diehard 8 to 10 guys there at both locations every weekend. Most aged 10 to 18 or so. Although there was one 'older' guy (probably still under 35 ) who to this day is probably the best arcade gamer I've seen. Never did beat him once at any game I played regularly and could whoop 90% of the other players at. Miss those days. Great communities. Probably the only thing that's come close since would be the DDR phenomenon of the early to mid 2ks, though I never really played it much in arcades.

Story of my teen years. I find it amazing this style of life seems redundant now. but you sure built your reputation on skill level. Boy the days when you could draw a crowd..

I s'pose online games and starcraft tournaments have replaced this

I have always wanted to play games using MAME..but I don't know how to access MAME (I'm a NOOB in every sense of the word. Still learning and getting a bit better) Could anyone please elaborate and explain the steps I need to do on the computer to get MAME working on My MacBook Pro or Mac? Is MAME safe to run on your computer or laptop?
PLEASE take a look at my NEW home theater gallery pics!!

In the past I used Mame32 plus I think it was, and that was as simple as grabbing roms placing them in the rom folder loading mame and and selecting which game you wished to play. without the need to memorize various line code.

this one discontinued.

and briefly I used Wolfmame (because I like shmups), but i haven't used this in a half decade and couldn't tell which mame works now for which system.

None I have used have ever been security threats afaik. accept the sites you may visit to grab roms. which I will not mention
