Does anybody know anything about Coin Operated Video Games?

Banned
Hi thinking of purchasing a Coin Operated Video Game for my games room for a bit of fun.

Anybody shed any light on what to avoid or any information.
I know this sounds pretty vague, and i am new to this.
Regards

a real Coin operated machine or would a PC in a Coin op box be ok with something like MAME running on it?

I would go for the MAME option, unless you want a special one that plays a game your never get bored of

I would put arcade machines into 3 types (not including tabletop ones)

Standard Arcade machine - Just as you get in an arcade and your stuck with 1 game

Jamma Arcade Machine - Just like a normal arcade machine but with interchangable games you can buy extra games that come like a Motherbaord you swap and replace (They are good but you need somewhere to stoare the games as they are big and delicate and can be expensive)

or a Mame (type) Arcade Machine - looks like a arcade machine (Might be a arcade machine converted into a MAME box or might a hommade box (homemade still looks like a real Machine, people are good at making these) It is basically a PC in a arcade box so you can use the sticks and buttons built in, have '000 on games on it an is very easy to add new games. look at Item number: 170357350655 & 120447428475 on ebay. A lot of people prefer these to other machines but its your prefrence. I have made a few of these also

Does that help? I know you can get MAME arcade machines with 4 sticks on but cant see one on ebay,

If you see a a Arcade Machine which says its a Jamma, then this can be fitted.


A Mame machine is a basically a PC in a arcade box, so you can put any game you want on it and use the Arcade sticks, buttons and Wheel if you want

Great price if it finishes for that, i would be surprised if it finished for under £150

Peronsally if you are going to play 4 players a lot get the turtles one, if most of the time your play 2 players get a Mame box, or wait until a 4 player Mame box comes up then you can play it 4 players and play every other game you wanted.
