Hi. I’m new here. Nice to meet you all.
I have a mild obsession with weird, obscure old arcade games. Because of this, I greatly enjoy coming here to your arcade.
However, I have a few recommendations that I would love to see put into action.
1. The Parodius Series
Konami’s old Gradius spoof series. It would certainly fit in with the rest of the Japanese games you have there.
2. Bonanza Bros.
A SEGA action-y type game where you go around and steal treasures from various buildings. It was more popular in it’s Genesis/Mega Drive form, but there is indeed an arcade version out there.
Another SEGA game. 4-player (or 2 depending on what version you get) action platformer with a fantastic soundtrack.
4. The Ninja Kids
Very quirky Taito beat ’em up.
5. Thunder Fox
Taito war-themed action-platformer.
6. Fantasy Zone
SEGA (notice a pattern here?) cute ’em up. Very classic.
7. Street Fighter II Rainbow Edition
Okay, this one’s kind of a stretch, but it would be very amusing if you showcased one of these somewhere. It’s essentially a strange bootleg version of Street Figther II with entertainingly broken gameplay. Google it if you’re not familliar.
8. Boogie Wings
Humorous Data East shoot ’em up with an interesting gameplay twist involving the ability to pick up objects from the ground.
9. Blue’s Journey
Very charming and fun Neo-Geo platformer game.
10. My Hero
Okay, this one’s sort of a personal preference as I have a very bizarre connection with this game. It’s a quirky platform beat ’em up by (guess who?)SEGA that takes you through three different time periods. It’s quite difficult but is very fun once you get used to it.
11. Joe & Mac
Another classic platformer game by Data East about cavemen.
12. Aggressors of Dark Kombat
Neo-Geo fighter with a sort of beat ’em up control scheme. Despite it’s blatant ripoff name, it plays fairly decent.
13. More recent games…? (MvC3, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, Skullgirls, etc…)
Considering that you’ve utilized modern consoles in arcade cabinets for Mortal Kombat 9/X and Killer Instinct, maybe you could try doing the same for a few other modern games?
14. Tekken 1/2
Perhaps it’s because Tekken 2 and Tag Tournament essentially outclass 1 and 2 in terms of gameplay, but I noticed a distinct lack of the games before it. Maybe you could rectify this?
What self-respecting arcade doesn’t want a most likely fictitious game that brainwashes it’s players?
(Okay, that last one was obviously a joke.)
That’s about all I can think of at the moment. It would be a great honor to have at least one or two of these requests acknowledged.

I loved playing Fantasy Zone! I also enjoyed Teddy Boy, for it’s fast pace, yet simplistic style, that had pretty good action for a small amount of memory needed to run it.
