I have always wanted to build my own Arcade machine having seen the tail end of the Arcade era (1991 onwards).
Through the 90's I played mainly fighting game Arcade's such as:
- Street Fighter 2
- Mortal Kombat 1,2,3,
- Marvel vs Capcom,
- Tekken 2,
- Virtua Fighter
- King of the Fighters
- Killer Instinct
However I dabbled in other great titles such as Metal Slug, NAM 1975, Final Fight, Sega Rally, Daytona USA, etc.
Now, one of my favourite games of all time is 'Streets of Rage' made for the Sega Mega Drive. I know Streets of Rage was never an Arcade title but it can be played with Arcade controls as it's a side scrolling beat em up and also it's different, I don't recall seeing many Streets of Rage based themes. I may add other characters from other fighting games to the side art, time will tell, lot's to do before then.
I found this great site when doing research on how to build my own arcade. After reading through lots of great project build threads I was inspired the most by 'Pete's Slim Arcade' build, simply because of the design, I love the look. I hope Pete won't mind me using his plans he uploaded.
