    If you guys like to play the old arcade games, you should check out MAME . It's an arcade emulator, meaning if you install a game on it, it's the same thing as the arcade. Files are really small, 1mb per file usually. Check it out, see if you become an addict like me.

    ok first download the MAME emulator, version .67. next, download a ROM. If there is a game rom and a parent rom, then download both. Make sure the ROMS go into the ROM folder in the MAME main folder. After you dl a game, just close it. Open up the MAME32 application, and find the game you downloaded on the list, then double click that. The game will work. Use 1 for the start button, 5 to insert a coin, control is button A, alt is B, directionals to move, etc. Once you get the hang of it it's a ton of fun. I just went and bought a joystick so I can play super street fighter 2 turbo, the pimpest game ever!

    LMAO. Yes it is. If I wasn't so lazy and already addicted to a game I'd be all over it.
