Lego Arcade Machine Overloads My Nerd Senses

Behold, my ultimate wet dream: Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Galaxian, Galaga, Zaxxon, Pengo, Frogger, 1942, 1943, Phoenix, Time Pilot, Bomb Jack, Arkanoid, and even Burger Time—48 classic games inside a beautiful Lego arcade cabinet.

The Lego arcade cabinet doesn't use MAME on a PC. Instead, it has a Jamma board inside. The Jamma allows you to easily pick any classic arcade ROM from a library of 48 games. It is now discontinued, but if you are looking to build something similar, there's a 60-in-1 model available for just $160

I know this is somewhat random, but do you remember when you were happily playing these arcade machines and some douchebag came and stuck a quarter at the bottom of the screen to let you know he was next?

Then he stood less than ATM distance behind you. You could feel his hot, stinky breath on your neck. So you just gave up the dream of being on the top 10 screen and lost intentionally to get away from that creep? Anybody? No? Just me? Crap.
