a full sized mame cab, with everything imaginable.

a custom mame cab designed for driving games, customised from all the best parts of other cabs, so a decent seat (possibly from a real car), a steering wheel (again if one from a real car could be used that would be perfect) and a nice set of pedals etc. something where a petrolhead could get in and fully appreciate any driving game ever.

super off road 3 player as its my favourite ever.

thought about renting an f1 car sized cabinet for the wedding but realised 3 things:
1. insanely expensive
2. wouldnt fit in the venue
3. a wedding typically needs a groom, best man, chief usher, father of the groom etc, none of which would have been present as all would have tried to beat eachother

Yep, down with that. MAME cab I will eventually get!

If it has to be stand alones, it'd have to gorgeous classics- Space Invaders, Donkey Kong and my fave Robotron.
