I bought my first arcade game for $50 in 1988. It was an Atari Star Wars, and I was immediately offered $800 for it as soon as I got a new monitor in it. I don't think I'll ever sell it, but who knows? Pinball came a little later. Around 1996 I was traveling for a living, and came across a Data East Star Wars in a convenience store in Tennessee. I must have stood there for an hour feeding quarters into it, amazed at how far the game had advanced since I played as a kid. I soon tracked down a used one for sale and brought it home. Since then I've added the Sega Star Wars (can you tell I'm a Star Wars fan?), then Addams Family, then Twilight Zone and most recently Lord of the Rings. And yes, I did pre-order the new Stern Star Wars, unplayed and sight unseen.
