    I must admit, when I saw Prinny was the topic creator and the thread was titled "Best basement ever" I'll admit, I got a bit worried. xD

    But anyway, that basement would be awesome.

    CAN WE PLEASE?

    Also most of the supporting electronics are simple, inexpensive and easy to fix (if you can run an o-scope and a soldering gun). My buddy I mentioned above bought at least a dozen that were only used for parts - the main trick is finding clean cabinets with good original artwork. I would say he doesn't have more than $1000 into any single machine, and probably has more like 300-500 into most of his (my buddy, not the guy in the video).

    That is amazing. Although I'm no good at any of those games...

    Yeah, that's *exactly* what I said - nice job reiterating it though (I guess I used too many words? Kind of like Salieri using too many notes )

    that's awesome. that's about how my game room is, but with console games instead of arcades. I would like to have a basement like that but I would never have enough room for the kinds of games I wanted. I'd need like a warehouse or gymnasium sized room.
