    My son has the Midway Arcade Treasures for his Xbox...Defender, Joust, Spy Hunter, Paperboy...has over 20 classics on it. We also have the Atari Anthology with 18 arcade style games...Asteroids, Battlezone, Centipede, Missile Command, etc. Plus it has 67 Atari 2600 games...Gravitar, Millipede, Super Breakout, Video Pinball....

    They are both great, take me back to when I was kid and spent hours in the arcade at the mall.

    gotta love classic games. My fav older ones were Digdug and TimePilot (timepilot 1984 was even cooler!). Someday I'll have a game room. I have a Neo Geo MVS already... just need to add a few more. I'll never have dozens of them... takes up to much room... but 4-5 would be neat.

    I love the gameroom idea, but I would have to fill it with games more relevant to my genreation. I would have the Mortal Combat machines, Tekken, Virtual Fighter, the Cruisin USAs, The Daytona racer games, Time Crisis, Sniper, House of the Dead, Area 51... Those are the real classics.
