    Used to use MAME an awful lot a few years ago. Used to love Pacland, as it was the arcade machine in the local chippy when I was growing up.

    Tooo many to mention:
    The Metal Slug series, Black Tiger, 1943, Ghost and Goblins, R Type ... the list is endless.
    I've got a couple of hundreds of games in Mame (maybe a thousand plus).
    Brings back the memories when I was a student may years ago ......

    I use MAME. I have so many ROMs I can't count them, but faves are:

    Original Pacman (Midway)
    Galaxians
    Defender
    Original mono Space invaders

    All faves from my childhood :)

    My wife also plays Puzzle Bobble.. I think...

    This one anyway

    I used to play Outrun and Streetfighter.

    I first saw Outrun on tomorrows world and thought... wow.

    Looks horrible now but still fun to go retro, its scary to think how much money that pixelated ferrari must have made....:eeek:

    I built a cab a couple of years back - got to have proper joysticks and buttons! Anyway, have discovered so many games I'd never played. Some favourites are Tapper, Rainbow Islands, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Galaga '88, BC Story (proper 2 player button mashing fun).

    ah damn you pookie.. =] are those all working? had around 250 that had to parse cause of missing sounds or they just didn't play right

    yeah outrun was fun.. I wasted so many quarters in the arcade as a kid =] I could beat strider on one quarter and forgotten worlds- me and my best friend would team up and beat it on 2 quarters.. they took those games out of our local arcade like a couple weeks later =E

    just imagine all the money they made off mortal kombat and street fighter

    We need to setup a Mame high score compo. But would it be possible to run one where the screenshots can be checked properly for alterations/cheating?

    Edit: forgot to mention fave games.

    Soldier of Light
    Wonderboy
    Heavy Unit
    R-Type
    Gauntlet
    Swiv
    Splatterhouse
    1942/43
    Black Tiger

    Lots more!

    I'll be honest, quite a few I've just run and got to teh splash screen to see if the ROM is valid, so there's a chance some may not be working as they should.

    Why don't the companies concerned sell these ROMS? Then there's be support etc. Instead they sit on teh copyright, yet refuse to let you buy them, and also will not release them into the public domain. Why? They could make money. I'd buy the ROMs from my favourite old arcade games.
