MAME Arcade Cabinets

Here are some resources for those of you interested in bringing the sights and sounds of the arcade into your game room. An increasingly popular option is to purchase a MAME capable arcade cabinet like the Diamond Plate Games Upright or the Classicade Upright Arcade System. MAME stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. These systems effectively allow you to have literally thousands of games in one cabinet. Commercially available MAME cabinets typically come preloaded with anywhere from fifty to a couple hundered games. You can always find more game roms on the internet and add them yourself. I suggest checking Wikipedia's MAME entry for a pretty comprehensive list of MAME resources online. Once again, if you don't want to shell out $4K and are so inclined, you can build your own.
