    nah, i disagree.. well i dunno, MK was hard, but when you mastered combo's and fatalitys it was mint, i learnt all sub-zero's, cyrax's, scorpio's combo.. running at them everytime combo'ing.. MK had great characters and more blood, ripping hearts out ect, johnny cage is up with the best if you can string his moves together..

    street fighter was more playable, you could complete it far more easy , and the special moves were more interesting, fire, haiuken (or whatver it was ken and ryu did ) blanka ect.. but it got boring easier than MK . .

    all my oppinons obv... but id say MK was better ..

    SNES - Never bought another console since. Can't improve on perfection.

    That fucking Goro, ended up kicking him in the head repeatedly with Sub-Zero on hard mode to get past him...

    You buy the cabinet, they usually come with a game or games, then buy other game boards and swap em over easily, just like changing a cartridge. I've had a few game boards that cost less than a tenner each and cost more in p&P, stuff like Bubble Bobble and R-Type always go for £100+. SF2 boards go cheap, around £20 or less.

    Most games you can set to free-play, or there's a credit button just inside the coin door, or you can use coins.

    Search ebay for 'jamma' or arcade machines, some real bargains to be had. I think £55 is the cheapest I've seen for a fully working 6 button one go for, but there was a funny looking early 80's one (not 6 button) that went for £3.20 with Football Champ in it.

    Dan is it a two player cabinet?

    I've always wanted a time crisis 2 arcade machine. Used to rinse that game like a hot flannel.
