A friend gave me an Atari Superman when I was 12. Played the crap out of that machine and I still have it to this day. It was only years later when the local arcades began dying off that I started buying other machines to play, fix and restore at home. My first deal was when I went out to buy one machine off of a local add for $300 and came home with 5 for $500 total. "But it was a good deal" has been a common line in the years to come.
