Hi everyone this is my first post,anyway my first pcbs were splatterhouse/batrider as i bought them at the same time for about £80 each.

However the games that captured my initial interest when i was young are Shinobi and Rolling thunder(played them at the local feast).

Ahh the good old days ;)

I think it was Magical Drop 2, I was so obsessed! I actually went out of my way skipped school and found a MVS 1-slot and the game then bought a really nasty
Egret to play it on. All in the same day. Greatest thing... the BF at the time bought the whole damn thing for me! HA LOSER! I love arcade~

Mmmmmmm well first arcade-related purchase was one of those woodies on the 'bay converted to MAME (yes I know - sacrilege). Had issues with it so got rid and then discovered KC (my saviour) and ended up buying a Naomi from Craig but with no games (bear with me here).

So got on the 'bay again and picked up a Naomi set-up with Border Down & CvsS.

My first PCB though was SF2CE. Still love that game to this day.

Finished!

Damn right. That is supposed to be THE Street Fighter II. The one deemed the best by Akira Nishitan (aka Nin). I know that Nin wouldn't talk to James Goddard after his work on SF2HyperFighting as he was against the 'turbo' thing. According to him that would 'ruin' the original pace of the game.

Well this game (along with Double Dragon and 1942) cemented my love of video games and ultimately got me interested in having my own cab at home.

Still missing an original 1942 PCB by the way... ;)

Mine was Street fighter 2 Turbo that was in a woody that I purchased at the end of 1994. Turned out to be a boot as well. :lol:

Super Street Fighter 2 (ebay for £20, sold as working). I bought it before I had a cabinet.

Got a cabinet about 6 weeks later from a local op, along with a Wrestlefest pcb (actually got two cabs and two WF pcb's, one original and one bootleg - the operator gave me the second cab and pcb for free). By that time the SSF2 had either committed suicide, or had never worked.

That was about 7 or 8 years ago, since then I built up a collection of mvs/cps2 stuff and some pcb's - and then gave it all away. Looking at getting another cab now (for my 3yr old girl more than for me; I'll be playing it as much as her though =] ).

Acrobat Mission was my first pcb,
with a friend we paid a lot when we was kids (all day we spent money on this game in a café near our school)
when I grew up, have money and arcade ideas (before buying my first cab) I saw this pcb on ebay and I buyed it (aprox 2 years ago)
I was very happy :-)
Arcade's nice when done well

Carrier Airwing, got it free with my first woody. Then SSF2, that was the first one I really got excited over!!!! My very own SF2 cab in my house, I was stoked for weeks!

Then I shelled out £70 for SFZ3 which I felt was a fortune and played for hours and hours on it!!!

Since then I paid even more for SF3.3, Progear and FOTNS. Cant see me paying any more than I did for those though :lol: (But then I said that before!)

As a matter of fact the main reason I got myself a cab is SF. I mean, I love that game and the best way to play it is the way it was supposed to be payed in the first place: with a cabinet. I do have those Hori RAPs, but it's not the same.
Playing a platform on a cab or via console is kinda the same. Playing Sf on a cab is a totally different feeling.

Q. So John James, why did you buy that Liquid Kids pcb since you already own it for Saturn and PCE
A. I don't know, because I'm a moron?

Well, Fatal Fury came with the first cab I bought (MV-4-25 Rev.3) but the first cart I purchased separately was Bust-A-Move (After all, I had to give my wife a reason to get into cab collecting). Outside of Neo gaming, my first purchase was AVP on CPS2.

I would actually rate it as prob, for me, one of the best games (year for year) that ever came out. It has it all imo. Good graphics for the time. Fast, needs reflex action and bloody hard. I'd have a dedicated machine deffo!!
